Cascade Conference basketball: 1st month in review

The Archbishop Murphy girls have turned up the throttle on the defensive end in conference play.

The Wildcats (5-2, 1-0 Cascade Conference) have led by at least 19 points entering the fourth quarter in their wins. They allowed just 150 points in those games — which is only 23 points less than they yielded in losses against Kamiak and No. 5 Mercer Island.

  • Sultan junior guard Bianca O’Hara (17.7 ppg), a returning first-team selection, and second-team selection A.C. Den Hartog (17.1 ppg), a Cedarcrest senior, are battling for the conference’s top scoring honors.
  • Daniel Cheledinas (16 ppg), a 6-6 senior, leads a King’s boys team that looks like the class of the conference once again. The Knights (5-2, 2-0), fresh off a four-game split in California during the holiday week, host co-leader Cedarcrest (5-3, 2-0) Tuesday.
  • South Whidbey junior guard Riley Newman (24.7 ppg) is running away with the boys scoring title. Junior guards Colton Rekers (19.4 ppg) of Cedarcrest and Theo VandenEkart (19 ppg) of Sultan are next in line.
