Slam Online reports that Fil-American Ordonio brothers cap memorable 2016-17 HS hoops season.
It is often said that whenever there is hard work, one can expect to reap significant dividends later. In the case of the Filipino-American siblings Kobe and Tahjae Ordonio, the patience and perseverance that they’ve rendered over the course of the summer a few months ago had them ending the 2016-17 HS basketball season on a high note.
As described in an exclusive e-mail forwarded to SLAM PH, the Ordonio brothers and the rest of the Monterey HS Toreadores have just concluded a memorable run that was punctuated by the varsity’s first-ever championship in Central Coast Section’s (CCS) Division III early last month, as well as a second-round appearance in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) State Northern California Regional Championship.
After a productive offseason, Kobe saved the best of his prep career for last, as the senior solidified his legend in Monterey HS basketball lore by becoming the school’s all-time leading scorer at the conclusion of his final playing year. This was highlighted by his per-game averages of 27 points, eight boards, seven assists and two steals in the Toreadores’ run towards the CCS Division III crown, covering three matches. That includes a remarkable outing in the title match, where the 6’1″ playmaker registered an all-around effort of 34 markers, 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks, as he towed his alma mater to its inaugural CCS Division III diadem via a 72-56 win over Saratoga HS.
