MERLE BASSETT — Special to The Cambrian

Coast Union’s boys basketball team went on the road Friday, Jan. 10, and played a pricey private school called the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks. The Broncos were defeated 82-47, scoring just three points in the first quarter (to the Griffins’ 33), and eight points in the second quarter.

Buckley School recruits talent with generous scholarships, like many high-priced private schools will do. The tuition at Buckley School is $33,775, plus $4,000 for fees such as college counseling and transcript preparation.

Meanwhile, the good news for the Broncos is that this was a non-conference game, and moreover, the Broncos are on top of the Coast Valley League standings with a 2-0 record.
On Tuesday night, Jan. 14, the Broncos played at Orcutt Academy and defeated the Spartans, 64-45. Coast won by going on an 18-3 run to finish the game.

Angel Avina scored 19 points, Gehrig Kniffen had 14 and Quinten Raethke picked up 11. The Broncos (now 3-0 in Coast Valley League play) entertain the Shandon Outlaws at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, following the Lady Broncos’ 6:30 p.m. game against the Lady Outlaws.
