San Marcos Goes Cold in 4th Quarter, Falls at Holy Martyrs

The best girls basketball season in a decade at San Marcos came to end Thursday in the first round of the CIF-SS Division 4A playoffs.

After trailing by two at the end of the third quarter, the Royals went cold in the fourth quarter and dropped a 39-28 decision at Holy Martyrs in Encino.

"Their leading scorer was banking in 25-foot three-pointers and then they used their height advantage to go inside, and we had a tough fourth quarter," said assistant coach Aaron Solis.

The Royals made just one of seven shots in the final period, while Holy Martyrs knocked down six of eight shots.

Sarine Kazandjian led Holy Martyrs with 23 points.

Milan McGary scored eight points and Taylor Hantgin added seven for the Royals, who finish the year 14-7.

"This was the best season for San Marcos in 10 years. We are going to build upon this," said Solis.

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!
