Tia Briggs, center, and the Wilson High Rams are senior loaded, and ready to make a run in the playoffs.


1, Wilson
Virtually all seniors; ready for Dome run?
2, Enumclaw
All are 5-foot-7, interchangeable – and good.
3, Lakes
Same question – can Lancers harness talent?
4, Auburn Mountainview
Senior Aly Carr example for young group.
5, Timberline
Sasha Weber gone, but four starters return.


* Crystal Ball
1, Enumclaw (15-8)
2, Lakes (20-6)
3, Auburn Mountainview (20-6)
4, Bonney Lake (7-16)
5, Peninsula (3-17)
6, Decatur (7-13)

* Fab Five
Tyanna Barton, Lakes, F/C, 5-11, Sr.
Rodericka Ware is back to score, but Barton’s inside presence sorely needed.

Hannah Calvert, Enumclaw, G, 5-6, Sr.
Last person she thinks about asking to score – is herself. Pure point guard.

Aly Carr, Auburn Mountainview, G/F, 5-8, Sr.
Ex-point guard now needs to be primary scorer for junior-heavy Lions.

Katie Holland, Enumclaw, G, 5-5, Sr.
When game is on the line, Hornets usually find their dependable shooter.

Mekenzie Voellger, Bonney Lake, F, 5-9, Sr.
Nothing about game is real fundamental, but her motor endlessly runs.

* Circle the Calendar
Jan. 22, Lakes at Enumclaw, 7 p.m.


* Crystal Ball
1, Wilson (20-4)
2, Timberline (15-9)
3, Lincoln (5-14)
4, Mount Tahoma (10-9 in Narrows 4A)
5, North Thurston (17-6 in 2A EvCo)
6, Foss (2-16)
7, Shelton (1-19 in Narrows 4A)

* Fab Five
Kiera Allen, Timberline, G, 5-4, Sr.
Was Sasha Weber’s partner in crime; now this steals’ machine runs show.

Tia Briggs, Wilson, C, 6-1, Sr.
A reliable inside force who not only scores, but settles Rams down.

Kaysha Fox, Wilson, G, 5-7, Sr.
Frenetic-paced offense needs heady distributor, and she fits the bill.

Precious Hunkin, Lincoln, F, 5-8, Sr.
Leader of formidable Abes’ frontcourt whose scoring will be needed.

Bethany Montgomery, Wilson, G, 5-9, Sr.
Dynamic scorer who easily is most terrorizing and athletic player in league.

* Circle the Calendar
Jan. 25, Timberline at Wilson, 7 p.m.
