LEADING SCORER: Kiya Childers puts up a shot against Goldendale's Macy Kayser and Maddie Cameron (10) with Mandy Solomon (30). Childers led the scoring with 11 points.

The Klickitat Jamboree was the first taste of competition basketball this season for most of the area's class 1B teams. The traditional opener of the season matched teams from Klickitat, Lyle-Wishram, Bickleton, Glenwood and Goldendale's JV girls' team.

Lyle-Wishram came home with honors going 2-0 in the 10-minute games for both the boys and the girls' team. The only other undefeated team was the Bickleton boys who beat Klickitat 16-7 and Glenwood 15-2.

Lyle-Wishram's girls dominated their opponents with a 26-0 shutout win over Goldendale and an 18-6 drubbing of Klicktiat. Kiya Childers was red hot in the first game, scoring more than a point-a-minute to lead the Cougars in the win over Goldendale's JV girls who got few shots off in the game. Ellie Smith and Lacy Carse scored on three point shots for the Cougars.

Klickitat girls were more of a challenge for the Lady Cougars. It was a foul-filled game with the Vandals going to the line seven times for just two points and Lyle-Wishram hitting 3-8. Carse hit a pair of three point shots and MaeLynn Luke added a shot beyond the arc. Marissa Lacock scored four points and was strong on the boards with Suzanne McConville who had a pair of offensive rebounds.

Klickitat was led by Keandra Kessinger with four points and Candice Templeton with two.

The Cougar boys gave up a single point to Glenwood's JV boys in a 25-1 win. John Stephens led the team with eight points and Chance Carpenter scored six. Lyle-Wishram closed out the jamboree with a 16-6 win over the host team from Klickitat. Jacob Ziegler led the Cougars with five points and Jonathan Von Ahn had four points, three rebounds and a blocked shot.

Turnovers killed the Vandals who coughed up the ball 11 times. Mason Knowland scored four points and he and Tim Lambert dominated the boards, each pulling down four rebounds to match Lyle-Wishram's team total.

Bickleton's boys spread the scoring among five players in a 15-2 win over Glenwood. Both of Glenwood's points came from the foul line with Dalton Jones and Richard Slawson scoring for the Eagles.

The closest game of the night was Bickleton's girls winning 12-11 over Goldendale. The Lady Timberwolves were in control for most of the game with Macy Kayser scoring five points and Hailey Bigbie scoring four. Bickleton had the size advantage and outrebounded Goldendale 10-5, but turnovers kept the Lady Pirates behind, giving up the ball 13 times to just six by Goldendale. With the game clock ticking away and down by a point, Kira Harvey came down with a crucial rebound on the defensive board and triggered a run down court that ended with Lindsay Brown scoring the game-winning basket. Brown, Katrina Cardenas and Jayce Alexander each had four points for Bickleton.
