White River boys, girls earn titles | Prep Basketball
White River High’s basketball teams – both boys and girls – swept through their district tournaments in undefeated fashion, combining to go a perfect 6-0. The success brought each a district championship and catapulted both into this week’s regional competition.
With just 16 teams remaining, the regional round is a loser-out, winner-to-state affair. The final eight 2A teams, boys and girls, will gather in Yakima’s SunDome for a three-day state tourney that plays out March 6-8.
White River’s teams will play Saturday, March 1, at Puyallup High School. The girls tip off at 6 p.m. and the boys play at 8.
The Hornet boys are paired against the squad from River Ridge High in Lacey.
The ninth-ranked Hornet girls will take on No. 8-ranked Black Hills High of Tumwater.
