Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors alike lined up excitedly in front of the student store on Thursday and Friday during lunch to purchase tickets for the biggest basketball game that our school had ever seen: the CIF Southern Section Basketball Championships.
On Saturday afternoon, students eagerly carpooled with one another to the Honda Center, where over 12,000 enthusiastic fans congregated to watch the big game.
In the opening moments of the first quarter alone, Chino Hills High School had already taken a 9-0 lead. The crowd applauded, the students stood up and cheered, the stands buzzed with excitement, the stadium surged with adrenaline.
By the game’s end, Chino Hills defeated Sierra Canyon by a whopping landslide, 105-83.
This was the deciding game in which our high school won the CIF Southern Section Basketball Championships, but of course, the future still holds much more, like the chance to win state.
Even since the beginning rounds in the Open Division, our team has been defeating opponents left and right with scores of 100-66, 112-78 and 102-54.
As we cheer on our team in these upcoming weeks, we will continue to hope that our amazing basketball players will maintain their triple-digit scores and unprecedented No. 1 state and national rankings.
