History: The Morro Bay High School Girls basketball team has established a great tradition. The Lady Pirates have reached the California Interscholastic Federation playoffs so often it appears to be a habit. During their playoff run, the girls have reached the Final Four on nine occasions and have played for the CIF Championship seven times, bringing home CIF Division IV titles in 1991, 1992, and 1999. The girls have reached the State Tournament six times, advancing to the Regional Finals in 1991 and 1992, and to the Regional Final Four in 1999. Several former players have moved on to compete at the collegiate level, many of them earning full athletic scholarships. Coach Bill Vedrin is at the helm and keeping the tradition alive.
Post Season and Summer: Girls not involved in a spring sport continue to work on their fundamentals and improve areas of play that need polishing. The Varsity team plays in several tournaments in the summer. The last tournament of the summer, the annual “Rumble at the Rock”, is hosted by Morro Bay and features some of the top high school teams in the state.
Benefits: Our program focuses on values that will serve the players well as they mature and prepare for the future. The girls learn how to work together to accomplish a common goal and gain confidence in their own personal abilities. They experience success and failure and learn how to deal with each. But most of all, they have fun and develop friendships that will last for years.
