High School hoop season winds down this week


This is the last week of the regular season for many area high school basketball teams. And for some, tonight is the last game. Such is the case for the Eastmont Wildcats girls basketball team. Following its only win of the Big-9 schedule last Friday, Eastmont wraps up its season on the road tonight in Sunnyside at 5:45.

Wenatchee celebrates senior night

Meanwhile, Wenatchee hosts West Valley on Senior Night tonight. The Panthers will recognize seven senior’s contributions to the program in a ceremony prior to tonight’s 5:45 game. We’ll have it on the NCWLIFE Channel with Grant Olson courtside for the play-by-play. It will be streamed LIVE on our Facebook page and then on TV following the Evening News at 6:30.

Tonight’s game could be a precursor of Wenatchee’s play-in game in the District Tournament next Tuesday…

Big-9 Girls Standings

As the No. 6 seed, the Panthers could be traveling to West Valley for the District Play-In game. But with most teams in the league playing two games this week, there’s still positioning up in the air. The only thing for sure is that Moses Lake is the League Champion and will host the District Championship next Friday at 6 o’clock and Eastmont is out of the playoffs.

Also on the prep girls schedule tonight, Cashmere wraps up the Caribou Trail League regular season at Okanogan at 5:45. The Entiat girls host Easton tonight at 5:45 on Senior Night. They’ll recognize Gemma Delgado and Mika Sanford, the only two seniors on the roster.

And, in the first round of the CWAC District Tournament, Ephrata travels to Grandview to play a loser-out game at 7 o’clock.
