Ashley Day Provides Big Lift for San Marcos at Arvin Tournament

Sophomore Ashley Day scored a career-high 16 points, and San Marcos got hot in the fourth quarter and rallied past Garces Memorial, 46-42, in a Silver Division game at the Arvin Girls Basketball Tournament on Thursday.

The Royals made 7 of 12 shots and were 4-6 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter.

Megan Cunnison scored two baskets in the fourth quarter to give San Marcos the lead with about 3 1/2 minuts to play.

Taylor Hantgin hit three triples en route to 11 points and Milan McGary scored 10 points, stretching her double-figure scoring streak to nine games.

"Milan showed great composure and leadership, especially in the second half," San Marcos coach Chris Hantgin said. "It was great to get contributions from other players tonight. Hopefully, this game will give Ashley a lot of confidence the rest of the season. Her scoring was key for us tonight.

"I thought Alex Guadagno gave us some good minutes off the bench tonight, and Taylor, Milan, and Jackie worked very hard to control their best player."

San Marcos improves to 7-2.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
