It was a special night at Righetti High School Friday.
The Righetti girls basketball team honored two players on their senior night as the Warriors also capped a dominant run through the Mountain League.
Righetti only has two seniors on its roster and the two were honored Friday night: Mishila Garcia and Natalie Garcia.
The two are starters on the team and both fill similar roles: Hard-working defensive-minded guards. Natalie Garcia typically defends the other team's best offensive player and powers the Righetti offense in transition by slashing through the paint to score inside.
Mishila Garcia has a similar defensive game, but on offense is a solid spot-up 3-point shooter. She knocked down two 3-pointers in the first quarter of Friday's regular season finale against Paso Robles as the Warriors won 58-50.
Mishila Garcia scored eight points in the first quarter and finished with 15. Natalie Garcia finished with seven points.
Malia Cabigon led the Warriors in scoring with 17 points, hitting a pair of 3-pointers.
Alex Paquet added eight points and Madisyn Cutliff had seven.
Hailie Able led Paso Robles with 16 points in the loss.
Both Natalie and Mishila are team captains. They were honored during a pre-game ceremony in front of a nearly-full gymnasium on the Righetti campus. Each player was met by friends and family at half court and took photos.
The duo achieved much success at Righetti. Joining varsity as sophomores, they won two outright league titles in three years.
This year they helped the Warriors go 11-1 in Mountain League play and 22-3 overall. The Warriors will next play in the CIF Central Section Division 1 Playoffs later this month.
