Kylie Huerta commits to Eastern for basketball

Kylie Huerta, who helped Kentwood win the 2008-09 Class 4A state girls basketball championship as a sophomore, has made an oral commitment to play at Eastern.

“I took my unofficial visit there and just really loved it,” the 5-foot-2 guard said Tuesday evening.

Huerta averaged 19 points, 4 assists and 3.4 assists as a junior last season as Kentwood reached the 2010 state quarterfinals, where they lost to Mead of Spokane. She was voted the co-MVP of he South Puget Sound League 4A North Division with Mercedes Wetmore, who led Auburn Riverside to the state title and is now at Washington. Both Huerta and Wetmore were on the 2010 Star Times All-Area team.

Huerta played with the Spokane Stars this past summer and said she considers Spokane a second home now. Eastern is only about 10 minutes away.

Kentwood returns all but one starter from the 2009-10 team and is expected to be among the contenders for the 4A state title.
