Bishop Diego Girls Fall to Thacher in 50-24 Drubbing

Cardinals lose their way in the second half

Bishop Diego girls basketball couldn't keep up with Thacher, falling 50-24 in a road loss. 

The Cardinals outscored the Toads 10-7 in the second quarter and had the lead down to 6, but a 16-1 Toad run in the fourth put Bishop Diego away for good.

Cardinal senior Natalie Whiting did snag a team-high 16 points, while junior Taylor Pate totaled 6. With freshmen filling out half the roster, Cardinals coach Jeff Burich was optimistic after the game. 

"The kids are playing hard and battling against much taller opponents," Burich said. "We just need to focus more in the 2nd half of games."

Bishop Diego is 5-10 and a hapless 0-5 in the Frontier League. The team will have a road game at Fillmore on Monday.

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!
