Saddleback traveled to Laguna Beach in a must win game with a slight chance to make CIF playoffs . The Lady Roadrunners played the Breakers on their Senior Night and the last meeting between the two schools in Orange Coast League as Laguna will be leaving the league to play in the Sunset League next year. The Lady Roadrunners came out strong as they jumped out the gates to a 17-2 lead in the 1st quarter, led by the two seniors Bere Olivares and Joseline Castelan. At the end of the second quarter Saddleback was up 27-5 , Sophomore Katie Cabaña who was brought up from the F/S team and Junior Angie Luna who was moved up from the JV team played outstanding in the paint as they control the boards.
In the second half , Saddleback cruised to a 51-17 win. Despite playing limited minutes Castelan 11 and Olivares 9 points led the Lady Roadrunners in scoring.
The lady Roadrunners moved up Freshman Martha Garcia , Leslie Morales, Marlin Villalobos, Juniors Anh Nguyen and Lucy Gonzales and they contribute in Saddleback’s win.
I want to thank our 3 year Lettermen Bere Olivares and Joseline Castelan . We have had our up and downs through the three years on Varsity and I am so proud that the two of you hung in with us. Coach Dan and I wish you the best.
