Watch: League Champions Apache Girls' Basketball Team Prep for Playoffs

This marks the first time in 34 years the Apache girls' basketball team has won a league championship.

The Apache girls' basketball team will face-off against Summit High School in the first round of the CIF D 1AA playoffs Saturday at Arcadia High School.

See the attached video of the team prepping for Saturday's game.

The team has had a stellar season, finishing first in the Pacific League with a 22-4 record. The Apache girls' basketball program has not held a league title since 1979, and has never won 22 games in a season.

"They worked hard," Head Coach Don Young said of the team. "We played 50 games in the off-season to get ready for the season. The girls stuck with it and it really paid off."

Though top-player Melody Chang is recovering from the flu and Team Captain Christina Huynh has a broken finger, Young said his girls will bring their A-game to Saturday's match-up against the SkyHawks.

If You Go:

  • Tip-off is 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Arcadia High School north gym.
  • Arcadia High School is at 180 Campus Drive.

AHS girls basketball won their first round CIF game at home against Summit. Read all about it in Patch or Pasadena Star News...if they ever get around to writing any report of any of their games this season. I see more reporting on West Covina, Walnut and Burbank. You would think Arcadia is more local news. Next game is against Troy, Fullerton. Check Maxpreps for time. Come out and support Arcadia Girls Basketball. Go Apaches!
