Pinewood’s Kaitlyn Leung puts up a shot in Friday’s game.
In the regular season, the nationally ranked girls basketball teams from Pinewood School and Mitty High clearly showed they were a cut above the rest of the Central Coast Section. Friday night, Mitty left little doubt that it’s on a higher plane than Pinewood as well.
The top-seeded Monarchs routed the No. 2 Panthers 72-51 in the CCS Open Division final at Santa Clara University. Defending champ Mitty – ranked No. 1 nationally by MaxPreps – never trailed and led by double-digits most of the way.
