Mariners Go 4-0 In St. Monica Winter Tournament: St. Monica Defeats Notre Dame Academy 58-32 And El Segundo 52-36

St. Monica girls basketball easily breezed through the St. Monica Winter Tournament winning all four games this week starting with Brentwood School 47-41 on Tuesday, Paraclete 59-43 on Wednesday, Notre Dame Academy 58-32 Thursday, and concluding with El Segundo 52-36 on Friday.

At the end of the tournament, St. Monica was the only team left unbeaten.

St. Monica Girls Basketball Head Coach John was proud of the way St. Monica was doing in the Tournament Thursday night, and was particularly impressed with the way the Mariners were attacking on defense.

“i was really happy with the intensity we brought on defense,” said Skinner. “It’s been our seventh game in nine days. You would think the girls would be mentally worn down but we really came out with aggressiveness and that is something I really like.”

Mariners forward Melissa Maragnes played especially well against Paraclete on Wednesday scoring 19 points and in Thursday’s game against the Notre Dame Academy Regal Griffons scoring 15 points.

CIF standout Briana Harris, who scored 20 points in the first game against Brentwood School, only played one minute in Wednesday’s game against Paraclete, and sat out the game on Thursday against Notre Dame.

Liyah Lewis scored 15 points against Paraclete and 18 points against Notre Dame academy.

“If that aggressive defense can be a style for us, we are going to be a very difficult team to beat,” Skinner said.

Tournament MVP was Liyah Lewis of St. Monica.

Named to the The All-Tournament Team was Melissa Maragnes of St. Monica, Kaylie Hage of Notre Dame Academy, Dorsa Mehrannia of Beverly Hills, Kennedy Martin of Brentwood, and Paige Endo of El Segundo.

Next games for the Mariners are away against Louisville today at 6:30 p.m. and Flintridge Sacred Heart Thursday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m.
