CHS hoopsters split Friday night results, plus news from the mat, Mount Si style, to start a December weekend in the Valley….

Good Saturday morning. We start this morning on the hardwood with Cedarcrest High School’s boys and girls, and split results for the Red Wolve hoopsters last night.

CHS’ boys were home in Duvall, and got a big game from Nicolo Cammarano as they took care of Sehome in their regular season home opener. Cammarano scored 16 points to lead Cedarcrest to the 63-47 win. That all said, coach Joe Ayers praised the visiting Mariners, from Bellingham. “Sehome plays hard especially on defense…..they are a scrappy team,” Ayers told us, adding that the Red Wolves did their best to maintain that same level of defense on the Mariners but ended up getting guys in foul trouble – and Sehome to the free throw line – as a result; of Sehome’s 19 first-half points, 11 came from free throws.

The Red Wolves host Wesco rival Archbishop Murphy for a non-counting league game next Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. with the two teams meeting in their Wesco counter January 24 at Murphy.

Red Wolve girls find out there’s work to do in loss to Snohomish: Cedarcrest’s ladies opened the Wesco schedule falling on the road 42-27 to Snohomish last night at Snohomish High School, and in the process realized they need to do some work to be in the best possible condition come playoff time. “Games early in the season are very important to see what a team needs to work on to go far in the post-season. Tonight was one of those games,” Red Wolve coach Brad Knowles told us by email. “We learned that we need to do things a little faster and with more physicality.”

Kat Townley led CHS with 11 points, but the team was without junior sharpshooter Jaylin Yowell, out after another knee injury, this in the win over Interlake in the Red Wolves’ season opener Wednesday. Even with that, Cedarcrest didn’t let that faze them. “We missed some shots that we usually make and when you combine that with going against a hot shooting team, it’s hard to win. But I’m proud of the girls, they fought all game long and showed a lot of toughness,” Knowles told us.

Cedarcrest is at Monroe next Thursday for a 7:15 p.m. tipoff.
