Hoops and action from the mat to start a Wednesday

Good Wednesday morning. We hit the hardwood this morning and it was a back-and-forth battle last night for Cedarcrest High School’s girls, but they fell short, dropping a Wesco contest to Lynnwood.

The Royals held off the Red Wolves 57-53 at CHS. Ava Erhardt led the Red Wolves with 14 points. Cedarcrest is at Mountlake Terrace tomorrow. More on last night’s game from the Everett Herald.

From the colleges:

Valleyite leads way for Puget Sound ladies, but it’s her teammate that grabbed the headlines: Valleyite Elizabeth Prewitt delivered another strong effort for the University of Puget Sound women’s basketball team last night, but one of her teammates got all the accolades as she set a career milestone, all of which helped the Loggers secure a win over their archrivals.

Snoqualmie’s Prewitt dropped a game-high 21 points, but junior post Jamie Lange, who has been an offensive stalwart for the Loggers just like the 2015 Mount Si High School grad during her career there in Tacoma, joined Prewitt in the 1,000-career point club, scoring 19 pacing Puget Sound’s 83-71 win over the Pacific Lutheran Lutes inside PLU’s Olson Auditorium down in Parkland last night. Prewitt went 6-11 from the floor, but Lange, from Sumner, went an almost identical 6-10. Both players were also perfect from the foul line, a combined 13-13 between the two of them.

Prewitt, incidentally, made it into the 1,000-point club just before Christmas on this same floor down at PLU, during a tournament Puget Sound was playing in there.

Puget Sound is now 14-3 on the season, 7-2 in Northwest Conference (NCAA Division III) play and they are home Friday meeting George Fox.

Also this morning:

Wrestling: Cedarcrest competes in South Kitsap tournament
Cedarcrest High School’s wrestlers had Wesco action last night, and we’ll have a report on that hopefully soon, but the Red Wolves this past Saturday competed at the South Kitsap Invitational in Port Orchard.

The Red Wolves finished sixth as a team in the eight-team event, scoring 103 ½ points. Host South Kitsap rolled to the tournament title.

The headliner for Cedarcrest was at 195 lbs., where Caleb Lay rolled through the field to take the weight class. Lay easily handled South Kitsap’s Logan McKinney 16-3 in the title match, winning that major decision. Miguel Tomayo (113) finished as the runner-up in his weight class, falling by pin to SK’s Peyton Motter in his final.

Other placers included Freddy Reid (160) in third, Austin Link (132) and Preston Goodwin (152) in fourth, Shawn Nykreim (126) in fifth, Michael Norris (145) in sixth, and both Cade Norris (170) and Wayne Wright (182) in eighth.
