News from Cedarcrest hoops, past and present, on this Thursday……

Good Thursday morning.

From the hardwood, the Cedarcrest High School boys’ basketball team could not hold their lead on the Lynnwood Royals and fell to LHS 52-45 in a Wesco 2A/3A contest at Lynnwood High School last night. Lynnwood outscored Cedarcrest 19-8 in the final quarter to rally from a 37-33 deficit after three to post the win.

Nicolo Cammarano had a game-high 14 points to pace the Red Wolves. Shawn Deming added 10 for Cedarcrest. Jayden Acosta-Newsome led the Royals with 13, while Jerry Boston and Josh Siscar each added 10 for Lynnwood.

CHS plays Mountlake Terrace tomorrow. The game is at 7:15 p.m. at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall.


Skagit Valley women make quick work of Shoreline: Visiting Skagit Valley took a 17-4 lead after one frame, and cruised from there, blasting Shoreline CC 87-39 last night in north Seattle in an NWAACC women’s basketball matchup.

Sophomore Mieke Van Ess, she of Duvall and a 2017 Cedarcrest HS grad, started for Skagit, but with the game quickly going in the Cardinals’ favor, Van Ess ended up playing just 12 minutes and had just two rebounds. Skagit moved to 4-1 in division play, in second place a game back of first-place Olympic, and to 10-8 overall while the host Dolphins dropped to 0-5 in league, 2-13 overall.

Shoreline has struggled this year, and those struggles were a factor perhaps in a midseason coaching change for that program; after their previous coach, Chris Weakley, resigned before winter break, the school named Dolphin assistant coach Marvena Kemp and former Sultan High girls’ head coach Rod Walker as co-head coaches. Sultan is a former Cedarcrest Cascade Conference rival, so a few of you Red Wolve fans may be familiar with him.
