Red Wolves girls’ hoops overcome fatigue to score home win

Good Friday morning. No preview/pick segment today as there’s only one game on the calendar – Cedarcrest High School’s boys at Mountlake Terrace (Mount Si plays tomorrow) – so we have some basketball for you to start this morning then some gymnastics hopefully later.

Cedarcrest’s girls were in action last night and it has been, suffice it to say, a very challenging week for the ladies, what with this being their fourth game of the week on top of it being finals week as the semester closes academically at the school, and with the emphasis always being on strong academic performance, these exams become even more important for these girls. Well, the Red Wolves found themselves enough energy and took care of business last night.

All players in uniform scored as the Red Wolves rolled to a 69-31 home win in Duvall over the Hawks. “The girls are physically and mentally exhausted but tonight went out and played a great game against MT,” CHS coach Brad Knowles told us by email. “I’m really proud of hard they played despite being so tired. Our offense was clicking, we shot well, and attacked the hoop all night.”

Ava Erhardt led things with 12 points, followed by both Helena Van Ess and Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson with 10. Kat Townley, Grace McKenzie and Rose Carlson all had nine points each, and rounding it out, Sidra Griffin and Ava LaPorte each scored three points, and Jaylin Yowell and Holly Williams both had two.

The Red Wolves now head down the stretch. “We’ll rest up this weekend for the final three games and then the district tournament starting February 12th.” Cedarcrest meets Shorewood next Tuesday night at Shorewood High School.
