For the boys, Roach roasts for 46, Ledine is more than fine with 39 and Torres gets torrid for Pioneer. For the girls, another Destanee can score almost as much as Destiny while Maranatha’s Fluker becomes a rebounding machine.
As has been customary for many years, we collect the state stat stars in support of the Cal-Hi Sports State Record Book & Almanac. The book has been published seven times (the most recent, though, was 2009) and is as official as a state record book can be since no other exists. To report a State Stat Star of the Week of your own, please email details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: All boys and girls basketball state records are in the process of being added to this web site. Some of them already have been added. They will be part of our Gold Club membership. For details, CLICK HERE.
