SAN DIEGO — In what was expected to be a close game, the La Costa Canyon Mavericks boys basketball team blew out the Torrey Pines Falcons by 20 points at the CIF San Diego Section Division I championship game March 5 night at
the USD Jenny Craig Pavillion.
La Costa Canyon out-scored Torrey Pines with the final score 68-48. The stands were packed with spirited students, fans and parents with nearly 5,700 people attending the six championship games that day. Drew Kitchens — the only senior on LCC’s roster — was the leading scorer with 25 points. Following Kitchens was Matt Shrigley with 15 points
and David Travers with 10 points.
This was the third win for the Mavericks against their cross-town rivals this season. LCC had seven turnovers, while Torrey Pines had 11. The Mavericks completed 19 rebounds, only one more than the Falcons.
Junior Joe Rahon led Torrey Pines with 22 points and supporting Rahon was Nick Kerr, who scored nine points. Fans from both sides showed their school spirit with posters and chants. La Costa Canyon planned their traditional “White-Out” against Torrey Pines’ “Gold-Out.” The Mavericks play
Los Angeles’s Washington Generals on March 8 at home.
