Washington’s Loree Payne headed to Hall of Fame

Payne.jpgFor those escaping reality by replaying in their minds memories of when Washington basketball was good, you’ll be happy to know current assistant coach Loree Payne is going to be inducted into the Montana High School Association Athlete’s Hall of Fame.
Payne, who helped lead the Huskies to the Elite Eight in 2001, will be recognized at Montana’s State A Girls championship game on Saturday in Butte. Not far to travel since Washington plays at Washington State’s gym in Pullman on Friday.
Havre High, Payne’s alma mater, is a contender for the state title. Payne helped the school when a championship in 1998 on the same court.
She’ll be honored along with seven other inductees. But the banquet was replaced with individual events (paid for by the person’s family or friends) held separately in the inductee’s home community — an economic sign of the times.
