Pedrojetti’s big game not enough for South

OAKLAND, Calif. — Tom Cole knew his South Medford Panthers were in for a challenge when they were placed in the premier Emerald Division of the West Coast Jamboree, and he was right.

Undefeated Castro Valley took advantage of South Medford’s 26 turnovers and hit 13 3-pointers on its way to an 82-62 girls basketball victory Thursday.

South Medford’s Bella Pedrojetti hit 8 of 9 3-pointers and scored a career-high 30 points and the Panthers (6-4) drained 12 treys overall, but couldn’t overcome a sloppy middle two quarters during which they were outscored 47-24.

“This was probably the fastest team we’ve played and we’ve played some good teams this season,” Cole said. “They just came out and spread the floor and played at such a high tempo, and our kids really couldn’t respond.”

Shakia Perry had five points and 12 rebounds and Ula Chamberlin 13 points for the Panthers.

The two teams combined for 26 3-pointers.
