High school sports

Ryann Nadeau’s very big week

RYANN NADEAU (14) leads the La Quinta girls’ basketball team.

With the high school sports seasons compressed because of the interruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, some athletes might feel torn over which games to play.

Not Ryann Nadeau of La Quinta High School in Westminster, who is managing to star both for the Aztec softball team and the LQ girls’ basketball team. She’s a senior who is both starting catcher for the former and starting center for the latter.

This week just past was a good example of that.

RYANN stars for the LQ softball team, too.

On Monday she batted 3-for-4, scored a run and drove in two runs as the blue-and-gold defeated Los Amigos 14-0. 

On Tuesday she scored 14 points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked five shots in a loss to Santiago, which is ranked second in its CIF-SS division.

On Thursday, she had a double, a triple, an intentional walk, scored a run and drove in two more in the Aztecs’ 11-0 win over Loara. The Saxons had been undefeated in Garden Grove League play and this win by LQ created a three-way tie for first place.

On Friday, she scored 12 points, had 12 rebounds and three blocked shots in a 51-42 win over Rancho Alamitos to help the Aztecs tie the Vaqueros for second place in the GGL.

On Saturday, she rested.

Until the playoffs.
