State legacy: Cedarcrest girls basketball team goes two deep at Yakima

The Cedarcrest High School girls basketball team finished its history-making run to state last week, going two games deep in the 2A state tournament at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

Sped on their way last Wednesday by waving fans, the girls got a police escort out of Duvall and Carnation.

This year, the Red Wolves were undefeated at home, gaining a number of firsts and achievements, winning their first district game and going to state for the first time.

At state, the girls met challenging opposition.

Cedarcrest played W.F. West of Chehalis, falling 18-36 to the Bearcats on Thursday, Feb. 28.

The team fared better the next day, but still fell to Wapato, 50-64, on Friday, March 1.

Cedarcrest beat Port Angeles on Thursday, Feb. 22, in the state regionals game at Lynden.

The girls end their season with a 22-5 record. Several members of this squad can be expected next winter, including juniors Susan Kenney, Kathryn Smith, Lacey Deming and Kalee Fowler, and sophomores LuAnn Townley, Megan Ditore and Avery Rich.

Seniors this year were Sarah Stauffer, Molly Hammontree, Kailyn Campbell and Courtney McKinney.
