On this Thursday……

Good Thursday morning.

Winter sports league postseason recognition is coming out, slowly but surely, and we have news from three area high school programs.

First, from Cedarcrest High School, where the Cascade Conference has released their postseason all-league rosters for girls’ basketball and wrestling. For the ladies’ hoopsters, two sophomores earned recognition – Elaine Townley and Haley Hill. Townley made it to the first team while Hill earned a second-team designation. Also, from wrestling, the Red Wolves’ Parker McBride was voted as the conference’s wrestler of the year, and coach Mark Ward was named the Cascade Conference coach of the year.

Hill and Townley led CHS to a solid 12-11 overall record, as the Red Wolves made it to within one win of making the WIAA state 2A girls’ regionals this season. As for the wrestlers, McBride was the lone rep from CHS at this year’s Mat Classic, and he ended up taking third overall in the state 2A meet in Tacoma at 113 lbs.

The Kingco 4A Conference has also announced awards for boys’ basketball, and two of Mount Si’s top players were recognized. Seniors Danny Tomson and Ryan Fischer were recognized after helping lead the Wildcats to the conference tournament this season. Tomson was named to the all-Kingco second team while Fischer earned an honorable mention designation. Tomson (21 points per game) and Fischer (11 ppg) were Mount Si’s two top scorers this season, as the team finished 6-16 overall and were bounced from the conference tournament after two consecutive losses to open the event.

As we get more info on postseason recognition from other teams, we’ll have that for you here.

We have one other item this morning, from college basketball.

Hoops: Kenney leads way for Centralia women in road win
Centralia College sophomore women’s basketball star Susan Kenney, from Duvall, led the way for the Blazers last night as they got it done on the road against Green River.

Kenney, a 2014 Cedarcrest High School grad, led Centralia with 15 points and eight rebounds pacing the Blazers to a 53-45 win over the Gators in Auburn which keeps Centralia tied with Lower Columbia (both 12-1 league) for top spot in the NWAC West division.

Kenney added four assists and two steals for Centralia, who is now 21-7 overall and has one game remaining in the regular season – at home Saturday against Grays Harbor.
