‘Biggest win’ for WRCA Warriors in Maui

After opening the Lahainluna Invitational with a loss to Mission Viejo – one of California’s top high school teams – the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors got back to an even record with a victory over another foe from the Sunshine State.

WRCA’s senior boys team, playing a pre-Christmas tournament in Maui, defeated California’s Inglewood High School – alma mater of NBA star Paul Pierce – 81-61 Dec. 19, before falling 69-32 to a team from Provo, Utah two days later.

Against Inglewood, the Warriors got balanced scoring, as four players – Tyus Allen, Jon Pelling, Peter Spangehl and Vartan Tanielian – finished with 14 points, and Jake Newman had 11.

“I believe this is the Warriors biggest win against U.S. competition in the school’s history,” said WRCA coach Jon Dykstra in an email.

The team returned home from Hawaii on Friday.
