Mats rewarded with NorCal Open berth
Miramonte High's Sabrina Ionescu (20) tries to get around Bishop O'Dowd's Aisia Robertson during the North Coast Section Division III title game on March 2. The Matadors couldn't keep up with a big and deep Dragons squad, falling 77-48 at Dublin High. Ionsecu, a freshman, led Miramonte with 16 points. Despite the loss, Miramonte was pulled into the Open Division of the Northern California regional playoffs. Even though the Matadors' only losses of the year came to the Open Division's top seeds in the North and South, they received an unfavorable No. 7 seed. Miramonte must travel to Delta College to face St. Mary's-Stockton at 7 p.m. on March 8 in its first round game.
