CHS hardwood report, plus news from the colleges

Good Thursday morning. Hardwood news for you on this Thursday.

Freshman Jaylin Yowell, from Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ basketball team, is quickly making herself a big factor for the Red Wolves.

On the heels of a solid effort Tuesday in CHS’s win over Cedar Park Christian, Yowell did herself one better last night, scoring nine of her game-high 18 points in overtime as the Red Wolves rallied from 14 points down to force that extra session, then post a 59-57 road victory over Anacortes that keeps Cedarcrest undefeated to start the season at 4-0.

Sophomore Hannah Hill added 15 to pace the Red Wolves, whose coach, needless to say, was very pleased. “This kind of a game shows just what our girls are made of,” said coach Brad Knowles, by email to the SVSJ. “Heart, they just won’t quit.”

Cedarcrest returns to league play tomorrow, playing South Whidbey up on Whidbey Island. The tip is at 5:00 p.m. at South Whidbey High School, with the boys to follow at around 6:45. We’ll have previews and picks of the two games for you tomorrow here. Speaking of the boys, they were routed at home last night in Duvall by Mountlake Terrace, 92-39. Stats are not available. CHS drops to 1-2 on the season.

College score
Prewitt’s efforts not enough for UPS ladies in loss: The University of Puget Sound’s women’s basketball team was unable to recover from a slow start and the NCAA Division III team was upset by NAIA foe Evergreen State on the road last night in Olympia.

The Geoducks took the 73-61 victory, with junior Elizabeth Prewitt, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, being held to just nine points on 3-12 from the floor, with two rebounds, four assists and two steals, for Puget Sound, who drops to 4-3 on the season. The Loggers are now off until December 16 and 17, when they play a pair of afternoon games in a tournament in Tacoma hosted by Pacific Lutheran University.
