Enumclaw High basketball standout Kaden Anderson will line up with the Evergreen State’s best seniors April 14 when the top hoopsters from Washington take on the best from Oregon.
The event is the 2018 Northwest Shootout, slated for Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Oregon. A clash between senior girls will tip off at 4 p.m., followed immediately by the boys game.
Tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
As a member of the Washington squad, Anderson will join Riley Sorn from Richland; Nic Lynch, Seattle Prep; Emmitt Matthews Jr, Wilson; Kevin Porter Jr., Rainier Beach; Erik Stevenson, Timberline; Eddie Turner, Garfield; Trevante Anderson, Rainier Beach; Brock Mackenzie, Eastside Catholic; and CJ Elleby, Cleveland.
During the past season, Anderson helped lead Enumclaw High to an impressive overall record of 23-9. He was voted co-Most Valuable Player in the North Puget Sound League 4A, leading the Hornets through district and regional play and on to the Class 4A state tournament. Once in the Tacoma Dome, the 6-7 senior made quite an impact, scoring 73 points and pulling down 41 rebounds in three games; for that, he was named to the all-tournament squad.
