Girls basketball beats Viewpoint High School

Justin Goldstein

The girls basketball team beat Viewpoint High School 61-44 Saturday at home, giving the team an 8-2 overall record with no league games played yet this season. 


In its last game, the team lost to Etiwanda High School ending a previous three-game win streak that the Wolverines had built. The team was looking to bounce back in the game against Viewpoint, which the team did in an offensively dominated performance. 


The team led through all four quarters, and also prevented Viewpoint from getting second-chance attempts at scoring. Strong forward Kiki Iriafen ’21 was a large reason for this as she had 16 rebounds in the win as well as 15 points. Point guard Melissa Zozulenko ’21 led the team in scoring, putting up 19 points in the contest. 


The defense held up for the team as well Viewpoint was held to less than 15 points in all four quarters. The team has been very defensive-minded this year holding its opponents to an average of 46.3 points per game. 

Point guard Krista Semaan ’21 said the season has been going very well for the Wolverines.

“Our season has been going really well,” Semaan said. “It has been a very busy season but we continue to grow after every game and practice and are hoping to finish it off with a CIF championship.”

The squad will look to continue its positive momentum in its next game against Troy High School on Tuesday April 27 at home.
