Lone Pine Duo Earn All CIF Honors

Lone Pine’s Greene and Cappello earn All CIF Honors

By Arnie Palu
March 22, 2016

The numbers are staggering.  Lone Pine Basketball’s senior duo of Brad Greene and Ryan Cappello put together an amazing run.  In their four year varsity basketball careers the Golden Eagles won 88 games.  In their senior campaign Lone Pine finished with a 22-6 record and a trip to the CIF southern section division 6 final four.  For their efforts, both Greene and Cappello have been named to the CIF-Southern Section SCIBCA Boys Basketball team, Division 6.

During their run at Lone Pine the Golden Eagles won three Desert Mountain League titles.  As Freshman, Lone Pine finished as runners up in the DML with a 9-3 record.  Lone Pine would drop just two DML games in the next three seasons.

This past season Greene averaged 19.5 points per game and 14.7 rebounds per game.  Cappello scored 20.1 points per game while pulling down 9.4 rebounds per contest.  The 6-11 Brad Greene has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball next year at UC Irvine while Ryan Cappello is now the ace of the pitching staff for the Lone Pine baseball team.
