GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Cougars Trounce the Titans 56-28


Weston Ranch beat Chavez High School 56-28 Tuesday night in a girls varsity basketball game at Chavez. The win improved the Lady Cougars record to 8-7 overall and 4-1 in the SJAA.

Sophomore Ja’Naysha Green led Weston Ranch with 12 points; Kimani Wilburn chipped in 11. Akira Thornsayah finished with 10.

After beginning the year with a 1-5 record, Weston Ranch has gone 7-2 since Dec. 16. The Lady Cougars will have another chance to add another win when they take on the 3-11 Franklin High School Yellow Jackets tonight at Weston Ranch. However, they will be without leading scorer Janay Holmes for the second straight game, and it will be another excellent opportunity for the Lady Cougars to step up and get the job done.

“It will be tough again without Janay,” said senior guard Kimani Wilburn. “We must elevate our games and pick up the slack in her absence.”

Tonight’s contest with the Yellow Jackets begins with the JV game at 5 p.m., and the Varsity will follow at 7.
