RHS Girl’s Basketball Defeats 2 LA City Schools

Rosemead –Rosemead High School’s girls varsity basketball team was undefeated in two games in the Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary Tournament last week to be awarded the ninth place trophy, announced Rosemead Head Coach Jay Gauthier Sr.

Rosemead battled Wilson, ranked #8 in LA City Div. 1, and got a 31-26 halftime lead before it eventually won 58-53, and followed in the ninth place game with a 76-63 win against Manual Arts. Against Wilson, freshman Sydney Hua came off the bench to score 20 points, and had  five rebounds and three steals, and freshman Melody Gauthier had 11 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists, and five steals. The balanced scoring is one of Rosemead’s strengths, said Coach Gauthier. Senior guard Jeanne Tran added 11 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks, including a block on a layup attempt by a Wilson player with a few seconds remaining in the game to preserve Rosemead’s win. Senior guard-forward Evelyn Ramirez scored nine points, and had 15 rebounds, five assists and three steals. Rosemead showed it can play fast-paced basketball by defeating Manual Arts 76-63 to earn the nine place trophy. Rosemead led 34-25 at halftime and extended the lead to 60-44 at the end of the third quarter when Ramirez made a half-court three pointer to bring the crowd to its feet, said Gauthier. Ramirez scored 25 points, and had 13 rebounds, four assists and four steals, and Melody Gauthier had 19 points and six assists, with Hua adding eight points, three rebounds, three assists and three steals. Tran scored 12 points and her all-around play earned her All-Tournament Team selection. Rosemead’s record is now 8-3 with the three losses against ranked teams, and Rosemead has defeated two ranked teams.
