On December 22, 12 teams from all over Orange County will travel to Dana Hills High to take part in the inaugural North vs. South Girls Basketball Challenge. The one-day exhibition will exclusively feature teams from north Orange County playing against teams from the south with bragging rights on the line.
The event is the result of an offseason effort by second year head coach Rob Cullinan to try and raise the profile of girls basketball in the county.
Here is a schedule of the six games set to take place at the Dana Hills gym, which features several local teams. Teams from the north are listed on the left, with teams from the south on the right.
10 a.m.- University vs. El Toro
11:45 a.m.- Westminster vs. Tesoro
1:15 p.m.- Loara vs. San Juan Hills
3 p.m.- Corona Del Mar vs. Capo Valley
4:45 p.m.- Northwood vs. Mission Viejo
6:30 p.m.- Los Alamitos vs. Dana Hills
The Dolphins (1-4) marquee matchup will be against a tough Los Alamitos team that boasts an 8-2 overall record. Read more about the Dolphins girls basketball team in our weekly Dolphin Report.
