The pairings are set for the regional girls basketball tournaments and I thought I’d post them for Class 4A, 3A and 2A.
The WIAA is in the process of determine which games will be played where, and Josh Liebeskind will post the links to that information for both the boys and girls as it becomes available — hopefully by 1 or 2 p.m. today (Sunday).
Since I’ve been off covering state wrestling the past two days, I haven’t been able to keep you updated on the final finishes in all of the district tournaments — and there were some wild ones.
Edmonds-Woodway qualified in 4A with a 66-65 victory over Eastlake Saturday in a loser-out game between the No. 3 finishers out of the Northwest District and KingCo. Freshman Missy Peterson drove for the winning basket with seven seconds left, from what I read.
Kentridge beat Tahoma 50-48 in overtime for the seventh and final berth out of the West Central District.
In 3A, Liberty knocked out Holy Names for the fifth and final Sea-King District berth, 61-57. Auburn Mountainview knocked out Bonney Lake for the fifth West Central spot, 51-47, and Ferndale grabbed the last (third) Northwest District berth by beating Marysville-Pilchuck, 58-47.
Some of the district championship games were thrillers, too — like Inglemoor’s 47-46 win over Newport and Glacier Peak’s 53-52 victory over Mountlake Terrace. White River edged Sumner, 48-45.
I’ll be taking a closer look at the regional games later this week, but for now here’s the lineup (Just realized I had another error and I apologize — I “assumed” top-ranked Mark Morris beat No. 2 W.F. West when in fact that was an upset the other way!; and I had the 2A Northwest District championship finish wrong — sorry; Lynden is No. 1 and Burlington-Edison No. 2, so their opponents are now correctly flip-flopped). Remember, this will all be loser-out, winner-to-state games:
Bellarmine Prep vs. Lynnwood
Puyallup vs. Inglemoor
Arlington vs. Beamer (BRUTAL!)
Edmonds-Woodway vs. Mount Rainier
Kentwood vs. Chiawana
Newport vs. Skyview
Kentridge vs. Moses Lake
Davis vs. Gonzaga Prep
Mountlake Terrace vs. Lincoln
Mercer Island vs. Glacier Peak
Kennedy Catholic vs. Bellevue
Liberty vs. Cleveland
Ferndale vs. Wilson
Bishop Blanchet vs. Prairie (WOW!)
University vs. Kamiakin
Auburn Mountainview vs Sunnyside
Port Angeles vs. Burlington-Edison
Olympic vs. Lynden
Lake Washington vs. Sumner
Black Hills vs. White River (TOUGH!)
Mark Morris vs. Renton (ALSO TOUGH!)
Bellhingham vs. W.F. West
West Valley (Yakima) vs. East Valley (Spokane)
