: : : : : : : What's going on with Los Alamitos? My daughter is an incoming freshman and is doing the summer program, and she says that there are very few players and nobody that stands out. It's our local school and we had heard that the program was on the rise. She's feeling kind of disappointed as it doesn't seem like people are that into it, and it doesn't seem like anyone cares, both players and coaches.
: : : : : : What do you expect when all of the talent at Los Alamitos has either transferred or is transferring to other schools? Los Alamitos is a good school. But it not a good girls basketball program. Los Alamitos has never made it past the 2nd round in the playoffs nor has Los Alamitos beaten any big name basketball programs even with all of the talent Los Alamitos has had. If you want your daughter to goto an average basketball school then Los Alamitos is the school. But if you want your daughter to goto a good academic school that also a strong girls basketball program there are a couple schools around Los Alamitos that you might want to look into. It is not too late to leave Los Alamitos if you think that it is not the right fit for your daughter.
: : : : : Never really considered changing schools since all of her friends will be going there as well. It's just a shame that for such a big school the girl's basketball program isn't any good.
: : : : Wasn't that much talent. The one supposedly going to MD is ok, but kind of overhyped. Couple of girls you wouldn't mind having on your squad but nothing game changing. True though, they never go anywhere in CIF and unless something changes, never will.
: : : They lost some of their varsity players due to transfers and incoming seniors no longer want to play under lukewarm leadership in a less than mediocre program. There's not that much left so they may not even win their weak league this year.
: : The transfer to MD was the recruiting pipeline for Los Alamitos and once she left, that sealed shut the potential posts who were supposedly coming. So yes, not much left.
: Lukewarm leadership? One family ran everything into the ground trying to prop up their kid, then bailed and left the program destitute. The usual parent nonsense that rhad mad youth sports rotten
Doubt MD will let her and her family have their way with them. Interesting to see how she fares there, my guess is meh. Decent, nothing more. The hype machine bout to get exposed as it was at the USA trials.
