Cedarcrest hoops vs. Lakewood wrapup

It appears the Cedarcrest High School girls’ basketball team will likely miss the postseason this year after suffering a tough loss this past Tuesday night.

The Red Wolves, who came into their game with Lakewood in third place among Cascade Conference 2A squads, fell to the second-place Cougars 46-32, dropping them 2 ½ games behind Lakewood with four games left in the schedule. “Lakewood came out fast and furious in the first quarter and we never recovered,” said Cedarcrest coach Brad Knowles. The main culprit was the struggles of the offense, with the team hitting just 27% from the field, a season low according to the coach. Additionally, the Red Wolves were just 33% from the line (7-21).

The playoff situation this year for Cedarcrest and Cascade Conference 2A teams is largely being dictated by how Shorecrest of the Wesco Conference fares in their league play. As it stands right now, the Scots, the lone 2A member of Wesco and who beat the Red Wolves earlier this season, are doing well enough that they will qualify for districts and knock the third-place Cascade team out, which in this case is Cedarcrest.

CHS is in action tomorrow, when they are at Sultan. Game time is at 6:45 p.m.
