Country Day girls lose in Regional Final

The La Jolla Country Day girl’s basketball team was unable to beat Windward (Los Angeles) for the third time this season when it mattered most. The Torreys (27-5 overall) lost to the Wildcats 68-58 in the CIF Regional Final on Saturday at Colony High School in Ontario.

With the win, Windward (28-4) will play St. Mary’s (Albany) at ARCO Arena this weekend for the state championship.

The loss ends the season for the Torreys, who were Coastal South champions as well as the San Diego Division IV CIF champs.

Against Windward, however, it was turnovers that got the best of the Torreys. Leading 46-44 heading into the fourth quarter, it appeared that Country Day was no pace to make it to its sixth state title game in the last 12 seasons. The Wildcats ripped off eight straight points to start the final frame, taking a 52-46 advantage. The Torreys were unable to get with four points the rest of the way.

Earlier in the season, the Torreys topped the Wildcats by scores of 71-53 and 45-39, but Windward had recently had one of its best players return.

Sophomore Kelsey Plum led the Torreys with 18 points and nine rebounds in the loss, while juniors Maya and Malina Hood combined for 22 points.

Despite the disappointment, the team returns the core of its team next year in Plum and the Hood sisters.
