A.V. girls stand out as scorers

first_imgThere is no shortage of scoring in the Antelope Valley this season, with two girls’ basketball players averaging more than 20 points per game. Leading the way is Antelope Valley Christian of Lancaster junior Miranda Broadway, whose 25.3 points average is fourth best in the Southern Section, according to maxpreps.com. Broadway has scored more than 20 points in 14 of 19 games for the Eagles (10-9 overall, 8-6 Agape League), while she scored a career-high 36 points Jan. 16 in a 46-30 victory against Bethel Christian of Lancaster. At Desert Christian of Lancaster, senior wing Carleigh Hobson has averaged 21.5 points to lead the Knights (18-3 overall, 10-0 Desert Mountain). Hobson’s career high is also 36 points, coming in a 53-30 victory over Paraclete of Lancaster on Jan. 6. Rare defeat: When the Knight of Palmdale girls’ basketball team defeated Palmdale 58-50 Friday night, it was the first time Palmdale has lost a Golden League game in more than two years. The Falcons (15-10 overall, 11-1) Golden last lost a league game on Jan. 2, 2005, against Antelope Valley of Lancaster, before running off the 25-game winning streak that ended Friday night. With that victory, Knight (19-8, 11-1) won a share of its first league title in the school’s four-year history. This was the first season Knight fielded a team with seniors, as the school was opened to just freshman in 2003. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
