City College Women’s Basketball won another tough game against Antelope Valley 85-81 on Saturday to boost its record to 4-1 on the season.
“Antelope Valley is very athletic we knew we were going to have a hard time guarding them. We had to switch our zone defense to our man defense because their really fast,” said Head Coach Sandrine Krul.
Krul said she was very proud of her team for not giving up.
“The whole team played well together. I told the girls if we play together as a team we will win games all day and we did that tonight and I couldn’t be more proud of these girls,” said Krul.
Players Jordan Parkhurst and Jada Forsdick-Stevenson led the team in points at Saturday’s game. Parkhurst had 17 points and Stevenson had 18 points.
“Jordan and Jada have been playing really well this season. They are both great players and I’m excited to see what they can bring for us this season,” said Krul.
City College’s offense helped the team stay in the game.
“Our offense went pretty good, everybody knows we can shoot. Our defense wasn’t so hot in this game, we have to execute better,” said guard Parkhurst.
Krul said she expects her players to give 100% no matter what the score of the game is.
“We’ve been working on our offense in practice and it’s been flowing really well. Our defense has been a struggle this season and we are working extremely hard in practice,” Forsdick-Stevenson said.
The communication was strong for the Vaqueros against Antelope Valley.
“The communication has been really good we have good leaders and good captains, we have great chemistry on this team and that’s we didn’t have very much last year,” said Stevenson.
Krul said she hopes the Vaqueros can improve communication on defense and knowing where players are at all times.
The Vaqueros return to the court at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21 to face LA Valley in the Sports Pavilion.
