The Las Positas men’s and women’s basketball programs combined had five players receive All-Conference honors. Sophomore guard Alex Martin and freshman guard Elijah Mobley were named to the men’s first team. Sophomore guard Kierstin Constantino was named first-team All-Coast Conference for the women.  

Martin led the Hawks in both scoring average (17.6) and rebounds per game (8.5) during the regular season. Mobley was the team’s second-leading scorer at 14.7 points per game. He led the Hawks in 3-pointers made (48) and taken (167).

Mobley was also named to the All-Defensive team. Freshman guard Sterling McClanahan earned an Honorable Mention nod after averaging 11.3 points and 4.1 rebounds. 

Martin, Mobley and McClanahan were central for a young Hawks team that went 17-11 overall and earned the right to host a game in the NorCal Regional playoffs. Their season ended with an 81-69 loss to visiting Los Medanos. With Mobley and McClanahan leading a contingent of players coming back, Las Positas figures to be in a good position for a deeper playoff run next season.

Constantino had a historic season, averaging 26.2 points while setting two school records. She scored the most points in a game: 52 in a 100-54 win over Cabrillo on Jan. 19. She also scored the most points in a single season: 654, breaking the mark of former Hawks forward Carlie Bonderer (634). Constantino did most of her damage behind the arc, leading the state with 146 made threes.

Sophomore forward Monique Cavness and freshman guard Kyshanti King, the past and future pillars of women’s hoops at LPC, were named second-team All-Conference. Freshman forward Joyce Mulumba, who finished second in the nation on all College and University levels with 490 rebounds, was named Honorable Mention.

Last season, during Coach Caleb Theodore’s first season, the Hawks finished 3-24 and went winless in Conference. This year, the team won six games including two in Conference. Offense was a big part of the improvement. The additions of Constantino and King, who averaged 20 points per game, powered the No. 7 offense in the state, based on offensive rating.

While they handled the bulk of the offense, Cavness and Mulumba handled the inside. Cavness averaged 19.6 rebounds to go with her 12.3 points per game. The only player to get more rebounds this season was Mulumba, who averaged 21.3.
