East Lake H.S.
THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
Blanch hit a milestone last week by surpassing 1,000 points for his career. The junior helped lead East Lake to a championship in Sanford at the Arrow Force Holiday Classic and scored a game-high 26 against Steinbrenner in the first game of the Clearwater Central Catholic New Year Invitational.
Blanch entered last Friday leading the Eagles with 23.5 points per game, 6.8 rebounds and 2.6 steals.
Since being paired up in the same district with St. Petersburg three years ago, East Lake’s winless in nine games against their league-leading foes. Blanch and the Eagles will try to end that skid in St. Pete on Jan. 15.
