🏀🏀 Mar Vista High School Lady Mariners Defeat Southwest Raiders 49 - 45 In Tough Fought Game Friday🎉🎉🏀🏀 Boys Lose.

The Lady Mariners are off to a great start this year with a hard fought win last night over the Southwest Raiders 49 - 45, The lead changed hands several times but at the end the Lady Mariners had improved their record to 12 - 1 and sit at the top of the Bay League standings.

In speaking with Coach Neamon today, whose voice was hoarse after a close and hard fought win last night, she was very excited about the team of players she is coaching this year. She said she has a team of 10 girls that range from Seniors to Freshman and they play as a team. There is no one girls that stands out head and shoulders over another and that has enabled them to play as a true team with no dropoff in play when she substitutes another player in. The team is lead by 3 Senior Captains which all bring different skills and leadership to the floor. 

Coach Neamon stressed that her players are hard working on string on the fundamentals of the game and doesn't have one selfish player on the team. Last night against southwest they played a very good team with a couple of stars and they were able to get the lead away from the Lady Mariners a couple of times with some great 3 point shooting but her team held strong and didn't let it phase them and by the end of the game they were starting to pull away. Only a couple of late 3 pointers by southwest made the game so close. Coach Neamon went on to say she has never had a team that has been so unselfish before and contributes that to their great record of 12 - 1.

If you would like to see this exciting team play, they have two games coming up next week at home both starting at 6pm. The Lady Mariners play san Ysidro on wednesday at 6pm and have a rematch against Southwest at 6pm on Friday.
