Hawks' 17-0 run in middle of game spells doom for Health Sciences

— There may have been some tough times in the past for Escondido Adventist, but the tough times Thursday night belonged to Health Sciences.

The difficulties cost Health Sciences any chance at a San Diego Section Division V boys basketball championship, too.

Escondido Adventist scored 17 consecutive points to turn a small lead into a commanding position en route to a 53-32 victory at Sage Creek High.

Senior Mark Camarena scored 21 points to lead the Hawks (21-6). He made four 3-pointers.

“There were lots of bad times to get to this point,” Camarena said. “But that seems like a long time ago now.

“This is a dream come true for us. To win the first title in school history is amazing.”

Kealin Jackson’s basket stopped the scoring drought for Health Sciences (18-7), but the City Heights team trailed 36-13 at that point.

“Our defense was the difference right there,” Camarena said. “Coach has preached that all year because our defense feeds our offense.”

Gavin Skeoch scored 11 points for the Hawks.

Jackson led the Surgeons with 15 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks.
