Nordhoff Lady Rangers bow out of CIF-SS playoffs

Making its first appearance in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs since 2012, Nordhoff High School (NHS) girls’ basketball team advanced to the second round before losing in the final seconds.
After finishing fourth in the Frontier League, the Lady Rangers drew a Division 5AA first-round game at Lone Pine High School. Despite the five-hour drive, Nordhoff came out firing and led 20-9 at the half after a pair of Morgan Mays jumpers.
Defense was the story of the third quarter before the Rangers pulled away for good in the fourth, eventually winning, 38-22.
The Ojai squad was led by juniors Stella Moore with 13 points, nine rebounds, Courtney Abraham who contributed 12 points, six rebounds, three assists and senior Grace Bergmann who added nine points, nine rebounds and six steals.
Nordhoff hosted Pius X – St. Matthias Academy, from Gardena, in the second round Feb. 17.
