The Sierra Canyon girls basketball team is in great position to be the No. 1 seed in the Southern Section Open Division.

The Trailblazers won four games this past week, including two Mission League victories against Harvard-Westlake and Marlborough and two nonleague victories against Birmingham (No. 1 team in the LA City section) and Valencia.

Leading the way are seniors Mackenly Randolph and Lousville-bound Izela Arenas. Two outstanding sophomore are right there, too. Jerzy Robinson and Emilia Krstevski.

The Trailblazers are getting timely shooting from Kayla Malek and Christy Reynoso.

“It’s a complete team,” Sierra Canyon coach Alicia Komaki said. “We all know our roles. It’s fun to watch.”

Robinson had 26 points, Randolph 21, Arenas 19 and Reynoso 9 in the win against Valencia.

Sierra Canyon outscored Valencia 29-2 in the second quarter, 44-4 in the second half and 73-6 in the final 24 minutes.

In an 86-43 thrashing of Harvard-Westlake, Robinson had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Arenas 22 points and Randolph 19 points, 20 rebounds and five assists.

Robinson poured in 31 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a 79-43 victory against Marlborough.

Randolph had 14 points, 25 rebounds and five assists.

Arenas contributed 13 points, five rebounds and four steals.

Monday’s 87-47 win over Birmingham had Sierra Canyon jump out to a 25-1 lead.
