Having already tallied 320 points this season, Cory LaGuardia, senior captain of the St. Monica High School girls basketball team, has become the school’s all-time leading scorer.
LaGuardia, who is also the student body president, broke Alex Pagnato’s girls basketball scoring record of 1,158 points, racking up 1,200 points so far this season. The four-year letter winner can add to her record with two more games scheduled in the regular season plus the playoffs.
The Westchester resident will be honored for setting a new scoring record before St. Monica’s final home game versus La Salle High of Pasadena at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10.
LaGuardia missed the first four games of the season due to a knee injury, but has averaged 15.6 points per game, coach John Skinner said. The Lady Mariners are currently riding a four-game winning streak and have won five of their last six with LaGuardia back at full strength, he said.
The Lady Mariners currently have an 11-14 (4-2 Camino Real League) record and are currently ranked ninth in the latest California Interscholastic Federation Division 5 AA poll.
A two-time All-Camino Real League basketball player, LaGuardia is also a four-year letter winner in volleyball. She was the 2010 volleyball team captain and was named to the All-Camino Real League 1st Team for Volleyball in 2009.
