Goji Girls 2014The GojiGirls won the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center’s Junior Dunkers Star League Championship, defeating the Avengers in a hard-fought battle, 38-23.

Brynne Faltinsky led all scorers with 18 points and 6 assists, Lisa Hibberd scored 14 points and had 8 rebounds, and Brooke Waite had three key steals, playing exceptional defense for the GojiGirls.

Sydney Helfand, Kaiya DeHaan and Olivia Schleicher led the way for the Avengers.

“The Avengers were a formidable opponent and gave us a very tough time, especially in the first half,” said GojiGirls Coach Ray Faltinsky, “But we hung tough and hit some key shots in the second half to pull away. I am really proud of both teams!”

More than 100 girls in first through sixth grades participated in the Junior Dunkers basketball league this spring. Players were separated into 15 teams and placed in Instructional, Rookie, or Star divisions based on age. It was a great season, thanks to the efforts of parent volunteers, along with Coach Mike Rausa and his One on One Sports staff.

Linda Durket, executive director of the Community Center, said, “Junior Dunkers continues to be one of our most popular programs for girls and boys alike. We are very thankful to the many families who participate, as well as our volunteer coaches for their dedication and our sponsors for their generous support. The involvement and support of the Rancho Santa Fe community is what makes this league so enjoyable.”

Coach Mike and his staff will run three Basketball Skills Camps at the Community Center this summer during the weeks of July 7-11, July 28-Aug. 1, and Aug. 18-22. Coach Mike’s Multi-Sport Camp will feature basketball, flag football, soccer, ultimate roundball, fitness and coordination. These fun camps will improve your children’s skills and get them fit.
