The SCA Middle School Varsity Girls entered the Valley Christian Schools League playoffs as the three seed, opening at home against Rancho Solano Preparatory School in the final game of the morning on Saturday, April 28.

The Eagles came out early with the full-court press, forcing Rancho Solano into several errors and scoring immediately off the turnovers behind the front line of Lily Richardson (#21), Sedona Nuessle (#32) and Natalie Scherzer (#23). With the early lead, Coach Watkins introduced Renee Chester (#3), Sophia Lane (#42), Carrie Meyer (#44), Allyson Lund (#20) and Ana Faustinos (#50), who continued the pressure and demonstrated the offense throughout the half, allowing SCA to finish the half with a significant lead.

In the second half Trinity Sloan (#34), Brooke Hancock (#22) and Baylee Tobin (#31) closed up shop, patrolling the baseline, rebounding, competing for position, swatting away shots, and shutting out the Rancho Solano team, while Daphne Garland (#40) operated the offense with a variety of line-ups on the court as the Eagles looked to advance to their semi-final rematch against Gilbert Christian.
