The senior place third in the 100 meters at the LA City finals last year and qualified for state for the Comets.
Brown was also part of Inglewood’s 4 x 100 meter relay team her sophomore year that made state back in 2011.
A multi-sport athlete, she averaged 13 points and eight rebounds a game on Westchester’s basketball team that made it to the LA City Division 2 finals.
Sometimes when you recieve a generous gift, your immediate response to return the gesture in kind.
That what University nearly did in picking up a big Western League victory on the road in wild seventh inning of an 10-5 win over Westchester.
Leading 6-3, University seemed to break the game open when Miguel Solis single to right field cleared the bases on an error by Westchester’s JT Taylor and was able to score on a throwing error by catcher Aaron Greenfield to give the Wildcats a seven-run lead.
Instead of cruising to an easy three outs, University relief pitcher Isaac Yoshinaga decided to make things a little more interesting.
Boys Basketball: A second half without Mathews was too much for Santa Monica to overcome in state title game
Sacramento – When Santa Monica’s leading scorer Jordan Mathews landed awkwardly on his back in the midway through the first quarter, it was a terrible sign of things to come.
With the senior guard injured and spending most of the game on the bench, the Vikings struggled offensively in a 73-57 loss to Pleasant Grove in the CIF Boys Basketball Division I State Championship Game.
Mathews hit his tailbone on the ground after being fouled on a three-point attempt and the affect was immediate as he missed two of the his three free throw attempts.
“I came down and got up too quick. Felt if I got up too quick then it would go away. I hurt right above my butt and it expanded down to my leg and I could not run,” said Mathews about the fall.
The Vikings held an early 10-9 lead after a put back by Mathews, but it would be that last time that Santa Monica would hold an advantage as Mathews was severely slowed down by the injury.
Every kid dreams about hitting the game-winning shot that sends their team to the championship game.
Saturday at Citizens Business Bank Arena, Santa Monica’s Jordan Matthews did just that.
There was only two seconds left on the clock when Matthews’ jumper sunk the hopes of a Loyola comeback in Santa Monica’s 53-50 victory in the Southern California Division I Regional Finals.
Like many others moments, Matthews put the team on his back when it counted the most.
“Big-time players make big-time shots, and we wanted the ball in Jordan’s hands,” Santa Monica Coach James Hecht said.
With the game tied at 50 and just under 30 seconds left, everyone knew who the ball was going to. Mathews waited patiently to run time off the clock, then dribbled past a screen and stepped back to knock down the clutch three-point shot.
With all their success in basketball this year, not much attention has been paid to Windward’s baseball program. That would be a mistake, especially when senior Kirav Patel steps on the mound.
The lefty has thrown consecutive no-hitters in his first two starts, including a 10-0 win over Milken on Wednesday.
Patel, who has earned All-Delphic League honors in his sophomore and junior seasons, had 10 strikeouts and two walks in the victory.
He also plays first base for the Wildcats .
Windward (4-1) has a doubleheader at Bishop later today.
