A newcomer to Central Valley High School's varsity girls basketball team, Adria Robinson enjoyed her most productive game to date with the Hawks this past week.

Robinson, a junior post player, scored a career-high 22 points as first-place Central Valley remained unbeaten in the Western Athletic Conference following Thursday evening's 64-10 domination of visiting Pacheco.

"I just wanted to help my team win," Robinson said. "I was focused."

The Hawks improved to 10-7 overall and 3-0 in the WAC.

The Panthers dropped to 0-14 and 0-3.

"We had our heads in the game the whole time," Robinson said. "It was a great team effort. We just want to win. We're extremely motivated."

Central Valley's Mikayla Mabie and Alexis Contreras both collected 10 points against Pacheco.

Alyssa Costa, Simi Sahota and Rosie Duarte added nine, five and four points, respectively.

Adriana Haynes and Gabby Bonales scored two points each.

The Hawks outscored the Panthers 42-2 during the first half.

Central Valley led 53-4 at the end of the third quarter.

Robinson started in place of Haynes, who was slowed by bronchitis.

Teresa Diaz (ankle) and Nicole Munoz (sick) did not play.

"Adria's capable of doing that," Hawks head coach Jesse Padilla said while talking about Robinson's career-best performance. "It's all coming together for her. She's only a junior."

"She's really improved since JV year," Mabie added. "I'm not surprised. I always knew she had it in her. It was just a matter of when she was going to show us. She still has a lot to learn. You can tell she's young. She needs to work on her confidence and post moves. She can be one of the best players in the area."
