The first round of league play in the Sunbelt League was celebrated at the inaugural Sunbelt League Showcase at Paloma Valley High School this weekend. The event featured a triple header showcasing all six Sunbelt teams. Standing out of the pack was Elsinore, clearly the dominant team in the league.

Elsinore rolled to an easy 76-42 win over the Wildcats from Paloma Valley. The Tigers were led by junior point guard Trevon Lampkin’s 24 points as Elsinore got out to an early lead and never relented.

Junior forward Preston Beverly added 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the win over the Wildcats while teammate Rey Solorzano was dominate at center. The 6’4" senior scored 17 points and hauled in 11 rebounds for Elsinore.

Paloma Valley’s London Moxie had nine points and eight rebounds in the loss.

The Tigers are now 13-4. Last year’s league co-Champions are looking to win it all for themselves this season. The Wildcats are 4-11.

The league’s other co-Champions looked tough and ready for Sunbelt action as Perris battered Heritage 70-32. The Panthers improved to 10-4 as Perris had three players scoring in double figures against the Patriots.

Junior forward DeAndre Johnson led the Perris attack with 13 points. Senior guard Rodney Smith scored 12 points and junior Abel Raygoza contributed 11points for the Panthers.

The Patriots were shorthanded in the showcase and were missing three of their regulars, including two starters. Junior Walter Meinzer led the patched up Patriots as he scored eight points for Heritage who fell to 4-11 on the season.

In the most exciting game of the Day Lakeside edged Temescal Canyon 58-56 in a tense game where the lead kept changing until the final seconds when Jailen Moore nailed three free throws to put the game away for the Lancers. The Freshman hit six three pointers and led Lakeside with 21 points. Junior forward Micah Diaz also scored 14 points for the Lancers.

Senior Jay Merriweather didn’t get started till the fourth period, scoring 14 of his 20 points led Temescal Canyon with 20 points against the Lancers in that frame. Junior forward Tim Fazanda had 14 points and senior Luke Timm scored 12 for Lakeside.

Lakeside is now 6-12 for the season and Temescal Canyon is 6-11.
