BREAKING NEWS: Cedarcrest girls’ dreams of winning 2A state hoops title end with loss in quarterfinals to W.F. West

The Cedarcrest Red Wolves’ girls’ basketball team’s dreams of winning a state title came to an end just a short time ago, as they fell to W.F. West in the quarterfinals of the WIAA 2A state girls’ basketball tournament at the Yakima Sundome.

The Red Wolves were limited to just 18% from the floor in a 36-18 loss to the Chehalis-based Bearcats, who shot 28% from the floor. Olivia Erskine led WFW with eight points and 10 rebounds, while Kailyn Campbell, Susan Kenney and Courtney McKinney all scored four points each to lead Cedarcrest.

Rebounding was a big factor as well, with the Bearcats outrebounding the Red Wolves 48-34, and that advantage helped the girls from Lewis County take 45 shot attempts total, a lot of them second and third-chance opportunities. WFW had a total of eight second chance points in the contest.

The loss leaves the Red Wolves in a loser-out game tomorrow with Wapato. More on that in the morning.
