The White River High girls got off to a roaring start Tuesday and defeated the Hazen Highlanders 65-50 in the opening round of the Les Schwab Christmas Classic.
The three-day tournament is hosted by Bellevue College.
The Hornets are part of a two-day, four-team bracket. Also on Tuesday, Issaquah defeated Holy Names. That means White River and Issaquah will square off at 3 p.m. Wednesday for the tournament championship. Issaquah is a member of the Class 4A Kingco League.
White River's early success – punctuated by a 32-10 advantage at one point – was keyed by Brooke Paulson and Sabra Sproul. In the first eight minutes, Paulson tallied a dozen points and Sproul had 10.
For the game, Sproul finished with 20 points, Paulson had 19, Carley McCutchen had 11 and Megan McKune scored 10.Contact Enumclaw Courier Herald Senior Writer, Editor Kevin Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-802-8205.
