Van Lith set state record 1-year ago
Speaking of Hailey Van Lith moments ago, it was a year ago yesterday that the Cashmere senior broke the state scoring record in a playoff game against Omak at Eastmont High School. We broadcast the moment here LIVE on the NCWLIFE Channel…
It’s hard to believe that was only a year ago. With COVID and the year we’ve had, it seems like a century ago.
