Victory snaps three-game losing streak for Bishop

Bishop Diego High School jumped out to 14-2 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in its 56-29 boys basketball victory at Carpinteria on Tuesday.

Bryan Trejo sank four three-pointers to lead the Cardinals with 15 points.

“He always does all the other things we need to win games and his effectiveness often gets overlooked unless you know basketball,” coach James Coronado said, “so it was great to see him score.”

Bishop had eight players score at least five points. Coronado had high praise for reserves Eddie Perez and Damien Krautmann.

“In addition to shooting threes, they played great defense tonight,” Coronado said. “It is very hard to stay ready when you aren’t in the regular rotation, but those two guys practice hard every day and never complain about their playing time.

“Tonight they were ready and it showed. Very proud of them.”

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the Cardinals (9-6).

“I felt we have been playing really good basketball but we had nothing to show for it because we had some close losses,” Coronado said. “It was good to get back on the winning track tonight.”

Kainoa Glasgow led Carpinteria (3-11) with 11 points.
