GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: GRANITE HILLS SHUTS VALHALLA DOWN IN SECOND HALF, WINS 42-32

by Christopher Mohr

 

January 26, 2011 (Rancho San Diego) - Only a few miles separate Granite Hills and Valhalla high schools from each other. The players and coaches from both teams know each other well. Both schools have girls basketball teams with winning records fighting for top position in Grossmont Hills league play.

It was not surprising that Friday night's rivalry game (1/21) between these two teams at Valhalla High School was a tightly contested, spirited matchup in the first half. In the second half however, the visting Eagles' defense intensified and limited the Norsemen to just 11 points in a 42-32 Granite Hills win.

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: NORSEMEN DEFENSE SHINES IN 54-44 WIN OVER EAGLES

by Christopher Mohr

 

January 25, 2011 (Rancho San Diego) - When most coaches talk about playing defense, they use terms like 'deny' and 'shut down'. When your opponent has a player as talented as Granite Hills' Garrett Larch-Miller, who averages 26 points per game, defensive vocabulary changes to 'containing' and 'slowing down'.

In Friday night's boys basketball game at Valhalla High School, the host Norsemen were able to slow Larch-Miller down enough to pull out a 54-44 win over the Eagles.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: FOOTHILLERS SURVIVE TURNOVERS, HOLD ON TO 21-14 WIN OVER EAGLES

by Christopher Mohr

 

November 4, 2010 (El Cajon) - It's hard to argue with the old sports adage that says the scoreboard does not lie. The final score does after all, trump any yardage statistics, hypothetical situations known as 'ifs' and 'buts' and any excuses fans make to defend their team. While the scoreboard may not lie, it doesn't tell the whole story either. Such was the case Friday night (10/29) at Grossmont High School where the host Foothillers defeated the visiting Eagles of Granite Hills High School, 21-14.

 

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: COUGARS DOMINATE EAGLES IN 49-16 ROUT

"This is our most balanced, complete team we've had. That's what makes it special."

-- Steele Canyon head football coach Ron Boehmke

 

by Christopher Mohr

 

October 20, 2010 (Rancho San Diego) - It might come across as arrogant if Steele Canyon High School changed their motto, 'You Cannot Bend Steele', by tacking on 'especially with Granite' to the end, but after Friday night's (10/15) homecoming game it would be hard to argue with such a statement. The host Cougars scored early and often against the visiting Eagles of Granite Hills High School in a 49-16 rout.

by Christopher Mohr

February 2, 2010 (La Mesa) - Last Friday's basketball game at Helix High School between the host Highlanders and the visiting Eagles of Granite Hills High School had its share of scoring runs by both teams.

GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: LADY SULTANS COME UP SHORT IN UPSET BID AGAINST VISITING EAGLES

 

 

by Christopher Mohr

January 24, 2010 (Santee) - You cannot fault Santana High School's Lady Sultans basketball team for a lack of effort in last Tuesday night's game against the visiting Granite Hills Eagles. They overcame a huge deficit and came close to pulling off what would have been a monumental upset. In the end, effort wasn't enough to defeat a highly talented Granite Hills team as the Eagles squelched any hope of an upset late in the game, escaping with a 53-41 win.

GAME OF THE WEEK: EAGLES RECOVER FROM SLOW START, ROUT SPARTANS 38-13

by Christopher Mohr

 October 2, 2009 (El Cajon)-- After twenty minutes of game time had elapsed, it seemed that Friday night's game between Granite Hills and Central High would be closely contested, with a final score in the 20s. Fortunately for the Granite Hills Eagles, that trend did not continue.

After a slow start by both teams, Granite Hills took control of the momentum and the game to cruise to a 38-13 win over visiting Central High's Spartans of El Centro. Both teams played a scoreless first quarter, and were able to move the ball on some plays, but not consistently enough to be a scoring threat.
