Prep Roundup: Raymond wins its 12th straight game with a big win over Ocosta


Gulls 63, Wildcats 18

RAYMOND — Raymond stepped onto its home court on Thursday night and played like a state-ranked team, overwhelming Ocosta in the process for its 12th straight victory in this Pacific League contest on Thursday.

Led by Abby Maneman’s 18 points, six rebounds and three assists, the fifth-ranked Gulls (7-0, 12-1) led 43-11 at the half and started the 40-point running clock with six minutes left in the third quarter.

“These girls have a history of having tough battles with Ocosta,” Raymond head coach Jon Schray said. “At their place, it was much closer than it should have been. We needed to get out there and prove that we can play our best no matter who we play.”

Hailee Williams, cited for her all-around game by Schray, added 17 points and four steals to the Raymond tally. Courtney Hagain finished with 10 points.

Coach Schray also cited Shylo Boyes, who pulled down five rebounds, for her all-around play.

Mikayla Sunde scored seven points for Ocosta.

On Saturday, Raymond travels to Rainier and Ocosta (0-7, 2-12) hosts Willapa Valley.

Vikings 61, Comets 31

MENLO — A nearly perfect first quarter allowed Willapa Valley to settle in and take over this Pacific League contest from Naselle at Tenoski Gym on Thursday.

Karli Friese led all scorers with 17 points and three steals for the Vikings (5-2, 8-6), who led 20-6 after the first quarter.

“We created several turnovers and ran the floor well,” Valley head coach Melissa Aust said. “The shots fell for us. Naselle had a hard time keeping control of the ball and scoring. We got a lot of playing time for the bench in the second half.”

Lauren Friese was cited for her offense, while Michaela Huber and Brooke Harden for their rebounding.

On Saturday, Willapa Valley travels to Ocosta.

Navigators 56, Hyaks 43

LACEY — A tough shooting night for North Beach allowed host Northwest Christian to run away with the win in Pacific League play on Thursday.

The Hyaks (2-5, 7-7) more than doubled their scoring output in the fourth quarter, but trailed 42-21 after three quarters. North Beach hit six 3-pointers in the frame.

“We were pretty anemic on offense until we loosened up in the fourth quarter,” North Beach head coach Peter Fry said. “We relayed and started shooting the ball, but it was just a little too little, too late. We didn’t come ready to score like we needed to.”

Mousie Shale led all scorers with 16 points, six rebounds and four steals for the Hyaks. Wakeena DeLaCruz added 11 points and Quay Sotomish pulled down six rebounds and swiped five steals.

On Saturday, North Beach travels to Naselle.

T-Birds 61, Bobcats 16

TUMWATER — Aberdeen’s young squad took its lumps against Tumwater on Thursday night in an Evergreen 2A dual meet at Tumwater.

Jose Duran (182 pounds) and Jaime Miranda (285) each won their matches by pins, while Erikk Machowek started the meet for Aberdeen with a majority decision win in the 145 match.

“We have a lot of first-year wrestlers and freshmen,” AHS head coach Chuck Veloni said. “They’re taking a beating right now. My hat is off to them for wanting to step up and wrestle varsity. Right now, they’re outmanned. They’ll be good in a couple of years. We just have to slow them down a bit.”

Veloni noted one tough loss in the meet at 170, when Tumwater’s David Wenzel caught Tavo Sanchez for the pin at 3:55.

“Tavo was dominating the match,” Veloni noted. “He was riding him and got caught; his head was too low, he got rolled over and pinned. That was a tough one.”

On Saturday, Aberdeen will be at the Grizzly Alumni Invitational in Hoquiam.
