It’s a big week for the girls’ and boys’ basketball teams.

On Monday, the girls’ team hit the road for their first playoff game against the Lovejoy Leopards.

The game was practically over before it began after the Redhawks held the Leopards to a scoreless first half and led 15-0 at the break.

“We definitely spent the majority of our scouting sessions preparing our defensive execution, so we let our defense translate to the offensive end,” senior guard Kamen Wong said.

The team went on to win the game by a final score of 41-11.

For the boys, they are seeking revenge in their last District 9-5A game against the Centennial Titans.

“It sucks to lose,” senior captain Drew Johnson said. “We want to get a win going into playoffs just to help that momentum and offset that loss we took to Memorial.”
