The Kamiakin High school girls’ basketball team has been on a winning streak this season, besides one loss against Moses Lake. They won their playoff game against Garfield, bringing them to Tacoma for state. The girls’ basketball has been training hard this year to get as far as they have.
Senior varsity player Kendyl Holle said she was really thrilled to go to state and felt prepared at the girls’ regional basketball game Feb. 21. Holle was confident her team was in it for the long run.
“We had the confidence we would make it this far,” she said.
Last year the girls’ varsity team made fifth at state. Holle said she was really excited and ready to be successful during the girls’ quarter-finals game. She said her definite highlights for the season were the dinners, friendships, being regional champions, and making it as far as she did.
“It’s been so fun playing all four years and having the coaches and players I had,” she said.
Jayden Williams, varsity player and junior, said it was exciting making it to state after working so hard.
“Everyone knew we would [go to state] since we haven’t lost a game since pre season,” said Williams.
Williams also said the team is nervous for state, but that it’s just a matter of keeping composure. One of her highlights from this season was play against Hanford and scoring multiple three pointers during that game.
The team is currently in Tacoma fighting for the title of state champions.
Update: Kamiakin girls finished fourth at state, beating last year’s placing at fifth.
