Double-double from CHS alum, including a career-high 20 points, not enough for Skagit women in college basketball loss

We do have some news this morning, and it’s from the college hardwood.

It was a career-best effort at the college level for a Duvall product last night, but it was not enough as the Skagit Valley College women’s basketball team could not hold a late lead and fell to division rival Everett.

The Trojans took the 80-77 win at home over the Cardinals in NWAACC North Division action, despite 20 from the Skagit sophomore, a 2017 Cedarcrest HS grad. This was the first game collegiately in which Van Ess dropped 20 points; she is now averaging 11 points a game for the Cardinals, who dropped to 5-3 in league, 11-10 overall with the loss. She went 5-10 from the floor but 10-12 from the line, and also had 11 rebounds for a double-double on the night for the Skagit post.

The Cardinals are home Saturday weather permitting playing Bellevue at 5:00 up in Mount Vernon.
