Good Friday morning. There was basketball last night up at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall, as the Red Wolve girls cruised to a win in their Wesco opener.
Senior Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson led all scorers with 18 points for CHS as they handled Marysville-Pilchuck with ease 62-28. With the team showing dominance like they did, the game ended up being one where Cedarcrest got a chance to work on defensive schemes in game situations. “We are experimenting with a couple of presses (defense) and they both worked tonight,” CHS coach Brad Knowles tells us by email. “Plus our transition is so quick, most of our points were scored in fast breaks.”
Bella Rose pitched in 14 and Kat Townley chipped in 12 both pacing the Red Wolves, who are at Mountlake Terrace next Wednesday for a 7:15pm tip.
Also this morning:
