End to a historic season


Accumulating a great deal of newfound success this season, girls basketball turned the program around, winning their first league title since 1998.

The Lady Brahmas secured their final two league wins against South Hills and Rowland, which ended their league record at 9-1 for the season. The team’s only league loss was against Los Altos on Jan. 25, 56-46. 

“I think the toughest teams were Walnut and Los Altos,” junior Morgan Seshiki said via Instagram. “Both teams had skilled players that study how we play, so we had to really play smart and give it our all for those games.”

The Lady Brahmas played Rowland during their senior night on Feb. 3 and won 60-44, sealing their place as Hacienda League Co-Champions, which they share the title with Los Altos. 

“Focusing for our next game is important, we need to execute and stay together when the pressure is on,” Seshiki said. 

The team focused on improving their conditioning to prepare for gametime intensity. They advanced onto the next stage of their season, which was the CIF playoffs.. 

“It was a very proud moment for my team,” Seshiki said. “Going through all the repetition and practice felt like it all paid off.”

The first round of CIF Division 3A playoffs for the Lady Brahmas featured a match against Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary. Both teams battled back-and-forth the entire game, but Diamond Bar ultimately suffered a heartbreaking loss, 46-45, following a game-winning three-pointer made by Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary.

The girls ended their season with an overall record of 19-5 and a league record of 9-1—a significant improvement from last season’s overall record of 12-16 and league record of 5-5.
