COUGARS LOOKING STRONG EARLY IN IIAAG SEASON

Academy too much for Guam High in girls hoops

The Academy Cougars began their quest to repeat as the IIAAG Girls Basketball Champions after making a statement win over the Guam High Panthers, 60-33.

Victoria Rapadas hit two three-pointers to lead the Cougar offense with 12 points. Madeline Ada and Jeneva Guerrero each scored eight points for the Cougars.

The crowd was pumped for the defending champions on their home court as they jumped out to a 12-0 lead.

By the end of the first quarter, the Cougars led 14-4. Rya Castro and Gabby Penry scored two points apiece for the Panthers who had a difficult time against the Academy defense.

Kailee Guerrero led the Panthers in scoring with nine points, all scored from the charity stripe. Maria-Jean Paulino scored six points for Academy.

Academy and the St. Paul Warriors are now the teams to beat after the Warriors defeated the ND Royals 70-17 at St. Paul. Both teams are undefeated and a rivalry showdown is scheduled next week between the two powerhouse squads.
