I was at the ShoWare Center in Kent Monday for the West Central Bi-District girls basketball championship games in 4A, 3A and 2A.
You can read the roundup on them here.
Mount Rainier played awfully well and Federal Way showed its promise at times. It will be interesting to see how both teams fare in Saturday’s regionals.
To be honest, I expected more from the Prairie-Wilson game. It was my first look at both teams. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, though, because of that late start caused by the Prairie bus delay. I think both are better than they showed, and they did have some really good moments (especially Prairie).
That Wilson-Cleveland game Saturday should be very interesting.
We’ll talke more about the regional matchups later this week. For now, I want to get to some highlights from the other tournament games reported Monday:
