La Costa Canyon’s Varsity Basketball Team secures its first ever CIF State Championship berth last Saturday with a win against the Lincoln Hornets. Zach Beery led the La Costa Canyon Mavericks in scoring with 15 points, helped out by Erik Magnuson with 11.
The Maverick’s “Big Three,” Matt Shrigley, David Travers, and Jeff Van Dyke were relatively quiet with only 19 points between the three of them. Brandon Miller came off the bench with 2 points, leaving the Mavericks with total of 47, just 4 more than Lincoln.
The Mavericks and the Hornets battled previously for the CIF SDS title, with LCC winning 58-54 in OT. The Mavericks will face defending champion Archbishop Mitty March 23 for the State Championship at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, Calif. —Alex Madurowicz.
