HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS

The Twentynine Palms High School girls’ basketball team remained undefeated at 8 and 0 after their win over Coachella at home on Friday, February 2, by the score of 56-19.
Coach Tim Stanford said leading all scorers was Lindsey Scamman with 19 points. Hope Culver continued her torrid pace in league with 14 points. Wildcat of the Week is Destiny Dedmon. Destiny injured her knee at practice before the season started. Some players would have gotten down and maybe even given up. Not Destiny. When she wasn’t playing, she kept stats on the bench and cheered on her teammates with all her heart. Since Destiny has returned to the lineup, she has resumed the high level of play fans are accustomed to seeing. Destiny’s pass first mentality shows her unselfishness, court awareness, and all around team play. Senior Captain Destiny Dedmon is a wonderful example of what high school sports are all about.
 
It wasn’t a good day for Yucca Valley High School soccer teams who played Rancho Mirage High School last Friday. The boys’ soccer team lost 7-2. The boys’ junior varsity team lost 4-0. The girls’ soccer team lost 2-0. Junior varsity girls’ soccer team tied 0 to 0.
