Clover Park 69, Pullman 48 (fourth/sixth): Sophomore guard Ahmaad Rorie scored a game-high 28 point and the Warriors claimed fourth place.

In three games at the SunDome, Rorie totaled 101 points, including a career-best 46 points in Friday’s consolation win over Ellensburg. The tournament record for most points is 118 set in 2002 by Lynden Christian’s Paul Hafford, who had four games to reach his total. Rorie tallied 101 points in three games.

Clover Park shot a blistering 61 percent in the first half on its way to a 46-20 halftime lead. Xavier Means added 20 points for the Warriors.


Cascade Christian 46, Cashmere 44 (third/fifth): The Cougars held off Cashmere’s fourth-quarter rally as Cashmere’s Trenton Johnson’s running 3-point try bounced off the rim, securing Cascade Christian the third-place trophy.

Shawn Spencer led the Cougars (21-9) with 19 points and Jake Archer added nine

Cascade Christian held a 40-30 advantage with 6:19 left in the fourth before the Spartans made their comeback using a 12-4 run to cut the lead to two at 44-42 with 13 seconds left.


White River 56, Lynden 46 (third/fifth): Cassidy France (12 points) and Kennedy Hobert (10) combined for 22 points to help the Hornets (27-3) to their highest finish since also placing third in 2000 at the 3A state tournament.

White River used a 19-8 second-quarter spurt to take a 34-19 lead at halftime, but Lynden cut the lead to three at 48-45 with 2:37 remaining. Despite being 3 of 19 from 3-point range, the Hornets connected on 17 of 31 free throws.

Burlington-Edison 44, WF West 33 (fourth/sixth): Senior post Uriah Thomas led W.F. West with 10 points and five rebounds and Olivia Erskine had eight points and seven rebounds to give the Bearcats their second consecutive year bringing home a state trophy.

It’s also the first time the program has won back-to-back state trophies since 1994-‘95. Last year, the team placed fifth.

The Bearcats held a 22-18 lead at halftime, but the Tigers opened the second half on a 9-0 run and the Bearcats never recovered. They also committed 22 turnovers compared to Burlington-Edison’s seven.
