King’s Girls Basketball Recap

The girls’ basketball team had a great finish to their season! They qualified for the state tournament and participated in the first-round defeating Montesano and then advanced into the trophy round. They played the defending champions of La Salle very well only losing by four and then were knocked out of the tournament by Annie Wright by a half-court shot at the buzzer!  It was a very controversial ending, but the team demonstrated a great amount of grace and sportsmanship that represented Christ and the King’s community very well.

They finished in the top eight of state and they are looking forward to growing in the off season and returning to the State tournament next year.
