Bs Crush As in Girls All-Star Tilt at Centralia College


Featuring fanfare before the game and a incredibly balanced scoring game throughout — almost as if they know each other — the B Team, made up of the best local players from 1B/2B schools, crushed the A Team, made up of the best local 1A/2A players, 84-37 in the Southwest Washington Girls Senior All-Star Game at Centralia College Friday night. 

Four B players scored in double figures, and All-Star MVP Karlee VonMoos scored 14 points, hauled in 17 rebounds, stuffed two blocks, and led the charge from the low block to lead the smaller schools to victory. 

Joining the Adna standout in double figures was Caelyn Marshall of Mossyrock, who scored a game-high 17 points, Morgan Hamilton of Napavine who logged 16, and Brooklyn Loose of Adna, who made a pair of 3s and scored 11 points. 

Coached up by Napavine head coach Shane Schutz, the B girls led from nearly start to finish, and were more than acquainted with each other as teammates after a rigorous Central 2B slate, with a few 1B Columbia Valley League standouts sprinkled in as well. 

“Getting to play against them, we’ve scouted them a lot throughout the year so getting to play with them and see what that’s like was pretty cool,” VonMoos said of joining forces with league rivals. “It was so much fun, it was cool playing with a bunch of girls that I’ve been playing against my whole life.”

Brooklyn Sandridge of Onalaska recorded a game-high eight assists and also scored on a long ball, Danielle Tupuola of Napavine scored six, Brooklyn Patrick of Willapa Valley had five, Reigha Niemeyer of Wahkiakum had three, Charlie Carper of Pe Ell had four, and Hailey Brooks of Mossyrock had five points. 

Payton Torrey of Mossyrock was honored as a participant but was unable to play due to injury. The senior Viking did compete in the 3-point contest with a boot on, and finished tied for second, but Tumwater’s Kylie Waltermeyer took the crown and a gift card prize, hitting 12 3-pointers in a minute. 

The A Team was led by Waltermeyer’s 11 points as the only player in double figures for the larger schools. 

Centralia’s Lily Babka hauled in a team-high eight rebounds and scored three points, Isabella Merzoian of Mark Morris scored five points, Hailey Angwood of Rochester scored one point, Brooke Blocker of Eatonville scored two points, Maddie Gore of Aberdeen scored five, Morgan Rogerson of W.F. West scored two, Roisin Stull of Rochester had two, and Cierra Larson of Tumwater scored six points.
