Bishop Diego Overpowered on Boards by Grace Brethren

Bishop Diego struggled on the boards against once-beaten Grace Brethren and suffered a 72-46 loss in a Frontier League girls basketball game on Thursday night at the Brick House.

Grace is 11-0 in league, 20-1 overall and ranked No. 2 in CIF Division 6.

"Grace just pounded us on the boards in the first half, getting too many second and third chances to score," Bishop coach Jeff Burich said. "I was proud of how the team battled in the second half. We had a lot of energy and fed off our Senior Night crowd."

The Cardinals honored Andrea Castellanos, Ann Bentajado, Veronica Morones and Kylie Koeper, "who left it all on the court," Burich said. "We were also able to recognize Sienna Gonzalez, a starter on our CIF Championship team in 2015 who was injured in October and wasn't able to play in this her senior year."

Natalie Whiting scored 16 points and Koeper had 14 for Bishop (11-11, 9-3). The Cardinals play at Fillmore on Tuesday.

Abria Laue scored 30 points for Grace Brethren.

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!
