4H Archery fundraiser a success

Bill Campbell, director of the 4H archery club said, “the potato feed and silent auction fundraiser was a huge success, we fed over two hundred potatoes to attendees and sold out of all the silent auction items in the two-hour event last Saturday. “Thanks to the generosity of our community, we brought in more dollars than we expected in and a portion of the proceeds are allocated to send district champion Cameron Mains to Lincoln, Nebraska in June for the national championships. Additional money is to be spent on both 3D and field targets. 3D targets are foam animals and field targets are the traditional bull’s eye. 4H Archery fields three classes of participants, kids from eight to ten years old shoot at target from three to ten meters, Intermediate shooters aged elven to thirteen years shoot at targets from ten to forty meters and senior archers at high school age aim at targets forty to sixty meters.

SCAC Boys Basketball

In front of a huge, vocal crowd at Yakima’s Sun Dome last Saturday, the 1A boys state basketball champions, the SCAC West Zillah Panthers, went full-tilt halfway through the third quarter against King’s Way Christian, unleashing a stunning 22–2 run that led to the highest winning championship score in 42 years, a 90–68 runaway victory. Both teams like to run, and run they did! In a match to see who could outlast the other, Zillah took advantage of King’s Way pause for a breather and never looked back. As a result, Zillah’s numbers went big, making 36 of 63 shots — 57.1 percent with 10 3-pointers and five players in double figures. Salinas played a stellar floor game with 17 points, six rebounds and six assists, Brock Ellis pitched in four triples, and Sebastian Godina nearly had a double-double with 18 points and nine boards.

SCAC Girls Basketball

After a pair of improbable shots fell for Lynden Christian, the pressure appeared to be focused squarely on La Salle in Saturday’s 1A state championship game at Yakima. But the Lightning defense just kept working, and it was the Lyncs who faltered when La Salle’s Kamryn Fiscus started to heat up from outside. The senior guard provided the spark as Lightning surged past Lynden Christian for a 56–49 win, ending the game on a 17–1 run to capture the school’s third state title. “I think we were pretty consistent with our energy level and our effort,” coach Alyssa Goins said. “It just finally took that long before we were able to wear them down.”

In their fourth matchup of the season, Sunnyside Christian Knights and Yakama Tribal took their Columbia Gorge rivalry to a large crowd at the Spokane Arena last Saturday evening. Heading into the game, the Eagles were the only team to have beaten the Knights this season, 54–51 in mid-January. The outcome was familiar. Once again, the top-seeded Knights celebrated a Class 1B boys basketball championship, their third in a row and eighth in 13 seasons, by beating the Eagles 54–45. “It’s really rewarding to see these kids who were all complementary players last year just grab the moment,” Knight’s coach Dean Wagenaar said. “Really, really envelop the moment.”

At press time, stats and highlights of the game were not available.
