Ray Wilson haunts CHS basketball

Former Red Wolves' basketball coach and athletic director Ray

Wilson left a calling card in Duvall last week as the Issaquah Indians

sent Cedarcrest to its 13th consecutive defeat, 89-30, Friday at Issaquah.

Wilson, who left Duvall to become athletic director at Issaquah in July,

sat on the sidelines as his new team punished the overmatched Red Wolves

in a KingCo league clash. The Red Wolves played without

standout Michael Smith, who was sidelined with a virus. He was expected

back for Tuesday's game against Bellevue.

Cedarcrest's Jeff Coy stepped up to fill the scoring void left by

Smith. The forward poured in seven points to lead the Wolves against Issaquah.

Earlier last week Ryan Dunn pumped in a dozen points in a

losing effort in a home game against Newport. The Knights capitalized

on Smith's absence by drumming the Wolves 85-46 in front of a

sparse home crowd. Junior James Conrick scored eight against Newport,

while Coy and Morgan Henley each contributed six points.

Meanwhile, the Cedarcrest girl's basketball team broke its own

record for wins in a season with a come-from-behind 41-40 win over Newport.

The Red Wolves finished with a 6-1 flourish to steal the win in South Bellevue.

Senior guard Heather Sherfey scored 11 of her team-high 12

points in the second half as Cedarcrest overcame deficits of as much as

eight points. Cedarcrest's Lindsay Peterson's put-back with less than

a minute remaining provided the margin of victory.

Coach Marc Hillestad said the win was a testament to the girls'

dedication to reaching the KingCo playoffs this season. The win provided the

Red Wolves with their second KingCo win and a school record seven victories.

"Opponents don't even scout our games, so we have the chance to

come out and really surprise people," said Hillestad.
