YC Basketball Splits With Chandler-Gilbert to Finish Season


It has been a rough season for the Yavapai College women’s basketball team. Prior to Tuesday night, the squad had lost eleven games in a row and had their head coach, Gerrard Carmichael, depart a month ago. But in their season finale, it all came together for the Lady Riders. They hosted Chandler-Gilbert, and after putting up an 18-14 lead, Y-C surged farther ahead, going up 58-35 in the fourth quarter. The Lady Coyotes tried to catch up but fell short as Yavapai concluded the 2023-2024 season with a 69-52 victory.

Kishyah Anderson finished her Y-C career with a 20-point performance. Saydee Allred netted 14 points, and Olivia Arvallo garnered 12 points.

It was a different story in the men’s game. Yavapai put up a good fight against Chandler-Gilbert but lost 68-63. No stats were available prior to airtime.
