State: Kamiakin girls win, advance to semis



(2) MT SI 70, (8) RICHLAND 47

Richland never got untracked in its quarterfinal, losing to No. 2 Mount Si 80-46 in the Tacoma Dome on March 2.

Richland will face No. 5 Gonzaga Prep at 10:30 a.m. March 3 in a loser-out game.

Luke Westerfield led the Bombers with 11 points and 6 rebounds. Richland couldn’t get its 3-point shot attempts to fall, only going 2 for 20.



Kamiakin’s Maddy Rendall was 6 for 13 from 3-point field goal range to send the No. 7 Braves over No. 8 Emerald Ridge into the semifinals of the WIAA state tournament.

The 55-52 quarterfinal victory means Kamiakin advanced to take on No. 4 Eastlake on March 3.

Rendall led all scorers with 18 points and 7 rebounds, and she was the only Braves player to score in double figures.

The Braves outscored the Jaguars 43-23 in the middle two quarters to take control of the contest. But Emerald Ridge had a furious fourth-quarter rally that just came up short at the end.

As a team, Kamiakin went 12-for-25 from the 3-point line and set the record for the most 3-point field goals made by a 4A girls team. Rendall was one trey short of tying the individual tournament record.
