Bea Benedicto and Katie Dabbaghian were two players with distinctively different styles this season for the Providence High girls' basketball team.
For Benedicto, a senior forward, she was a physical, grinding presence, posting up and getting the majority of her points under the basket. In contrast, Dabbaghian, a sophomore guard, was the court general for the Pioneers, as her slashing style and quickness posed problems for opponents.
Despite their differences, both Benedicto and Dabbaghian enjoyed their share of success during the 2012-13 season. The two also have something else in common, as they earned All-CIF Southern Section honors, which were released Monday.
While Benedicto was a first-team choice in Division V-AA, Dabbaghian made the second team. It is the second straight season the pair has garnered All-CIF accolades.
Also joining the two Pioneers were Burroughs senior Aysia Shellmire, who was a second-team pick in Division I-A, and Burbank resident Samantha Pyros, a senior at Village Christian who made the Division V-AA first team.
