Mary M. Knight 49, Three Rivers Christian 27: A second-quarter scoring barrage wasn’t enough to keep the Eagles in the postseason. Its Southwest District 1B loss Wednesday eliminated the Eagles despite Kamryn Wright’s nine points. Cindy Baker and Bobbie Jo-Gushman added seven points, while Kendal Newport scored four points.

The Eagles were shutout in the first quarter, but rallied to score 13 points in the second frame, entering the break with a 10 point deficit.

Toledo 64, Raymond 37: Kal Schaplow scored 25 points with 10 rebounds and Stacie Spahr added 17 points with 18 boards in the Indians’ Southwest District 2B win in Rochester on Wednesday. “That was really important because we didn’t give them a second shot,” coach Brian Layton said. “Them and Kyleigh (Holmes) did a good job of limiting their shots.”

Layton said that the defense of Gracie Madill, who guarded Raymond’s Kyra Gardner, made a significant difference, as did the rotational help.

Toledo will play Ilwaco on Saturday in either Rochester or Montesano.


Woodland 78, Hockinson 75: The Beavers (8-12, 4-8) ended their season with a Greater St. Helens League 2A road win Wednesday, led by Tyler Flanagan’s 24 points. Cousin isaiah Flanagan scored 22 points. “I told them that every other season in Woodland has ended with a loss,” coach Andrew Johnson said. “It’s an unbelievably gutsy effort by these guys. For Tyler Flanagan, Jack Wear and Kyle Groce to go out with a win is great.”

Hockinson’s Peyton Brammer scored 50 points in the loss.


Lower Columbia 88, Green River 58: Jerri Maluyo had 22 points and six assists, and Kenya Lorton added 19 points, nine rebounds and four assists as the Red Devils rolled to an NWAC West Region women’s basketball victory on Wednesday in Auburn.
