NAPAVINE — Napavine left little doubt who the best team in the Central 2B League is here on Thursday, as the Tigers won 66-15 over Rainier to secure the league title.
Napavine finishes the regular season 19-1 overall and 16-0 in C2BL games, and will play their opening game of the District 4 tournament on Saturday, Feb. 10.
Melissa Lee led the Tigers with 18 points, Mollie Olson added 16 points and Becca Snaza chipped in 12 points.
It was the final game in Napavine for seniors Emile Evander, Lucy Sevilla, Snaza, Olson and Lee.
“It feels good. I’m happy for the girls. This group of girls put in a lot of time and effort,” Napavine coach Jeremy Landram said. “Everything they’ve brought to the community, they deserve everything they get. These five seniors are very special people.”
The Tigers shutout Rainier 52-0 in the first half.
Napavine’s lone loss of the season came at the Best of the West tournament in Los Angeles, a 6-point loss to Centennial High School in the championship game.

Aselton Leads Pirates Past Pe Ell
PE ELL — Payton Aselton scored 17 points and the Pirates shot past Pe Ell, 55-28, here Thursday to wrap up both teams’ Central 2B League girls basketball regular season.
Sam Foster added 9 points for Adna, with Emily Sliva, Abby Kruger and Tyas Pannette each chipping in 7.
The Pirates dished out 14 assists, noted Pe Ell coach Chris Phelps, with Aselton taking responsible for the vast majority of those.
“She just distributes the ball so well,” Phelps said of the Pirates’ sophomore point guard. “Just defensively, for us, when they have somebody that sees the floor and is so unselfish — and held our leading scorer to 5 points tonight.”
Maggie Elliott led Pe Ell with 7 points and 10 rebounds.
Phelps, though, was happy with his team’s progress.
“We are getting better,” he said. “We know that in this league it’s very tough to get wins and to compete night in and night out, but as a team we are getting better and putting in the work.”
The Trojans also celebrated the careers of Elliott, Makayla Newell and Anna Nacht on senior night.
Pe Ell (4-15, 4-12 league) finished ninth in the C2BL and will move on to the play-in round of the District 4 tournament, going on the road Tuesday to face the No. 5 C2BL team — which will be either Adna (12-8, 10-6) or Morton-White Pass (12-8, 10-6), who finished tied for fifth and split their regular season games. A coin toss on Saturday will settle the tie, with the sixth-place team hosting North Beach, the No. 7 team out of the Pacific 2B League. Winners of the play-in games move on to the first round on Thursday.

Toledo Decimates Kalama
TOLEDO — Toledo’s Kal Schaplow scored 17 points to lead the Indians to a 62-18 win over Kalama in a Central 2B League girls basketball game here on Thursday.
The Indians finish the season 14-6 overall and 12-4 in league games. Toledo will finish as the 3 or 4 seed, depending on the result of the Mossyrock-Wahkiakum game on Friday.
Anna Tauscher recorded 14 points and 7 assists and Emily Tyner scored 11 points. Schaplow had 5 assists and Kyleigh Holmes recorded 6 assists and 4 rebounds.
Toledo led 18-4 after one quarter and built a 35-8 lead at halftime. It was all Indians in the second half, outscoring Kalama 27-10.
“I thought we played really well. The seniors got us off to a great start. Everybody shared the ball really well. It was a great team effort,” Toledo coach Brian Layton said.
It was the final home game for Toledo’s Ally Bacon, Alyssa Ewers, Abigail Rowe, Tyner and Tauscher.

Toutle Lake Holds Off Winlock
TOUTLE — Toutle Lake opened up a 15-0 lead and was able to hold on down the stretch to defeat Winlock 39-33 in a Central 2B League girls basketball game here on Thursday.
Cheleena Squibb led Winlock with 10 points and Jenna Jones added 5 points and 14 rebounds.
Toutle Lake’s Keeley Studebaker-Smith led all scorers with 22 points.
The Ducks led 15-0 to start the game, but Winlock slowly battled back into the game and trailed 24-11 at halftime.
Toutle Lake led 31-17 going into the fourth quarter, but Winlock scored 16 points in the final frame, but came up just short.
“They battled, they got it to 6 but just fell a little short,” Winlock coach Tori Nelson said.
Winlock finished the season 2-18 overall and 1-15 in C2BL games. The team graduated no seniors, and coach Nelson is ready for next season.
“I’m feeling very optimistic, I’m pretty excited,” Nelson said.

Winter’s Big Night Helps Rochester Defeat Aberdeen
ROCHESTER — Rochester’s Paige Winter recorded a double-double to help the Warriors end their season with a 73-39 win over Aberdeen in an Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball game here on Thursday.
Winter scored 41 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Megan Elkins and Lexi Sederberg each had 10 rebounds.
The Warriors built a 22-10 lead after one quarter, and started to pull away in the second quarter to lead 39-18 at halftime. Rochester scored 24 points in the third quarter to cruise to the win.
“It was a real nice way to end the season. Being senior night, our crowd was huge tonight. I thought our boys basketball team and student body was awesome,” Rochester coach A.J. Easley said. “(Paige) played pretty well. They fed off the crowd and played hard together. They didn’t want to end their season on a loss and they made sure they didn’t.”
It was the final prep basketball game for Rochester’s Hunter Hahn.
The Warriors finished the season 6-14 overall and 2-8 in EvCo games.

Morton-White Pass Takes Down Onalaska
RANDLE — Morton-White Pass’ Shaylee Peters recorded a double-double to help the Timberwolves to a 60-33 win over Onalaska in a Central 2B League girls basketball game here on Thursday.
Peters scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Katie Salguero added 14 points and Jacie Dunlap chipped in 10 points for MWP.
Adalee Sabin led Onalaska with 9 points and Phoebe Rich recorded 8 points. Carmen Cleveland Barrera and Chloe Nevitt each had 7 rebounds.
MWP led 14-12 after one quarter, but poured it on in the second quarter to lead 31-21 at halftime. The third quarter was the difference, as MWP outscored Onalaska 22-7, including 12 points from Salguero.
“We went from one of our worst performances to bounce back with one of our best performances of the season. We played really well tonight,” MWP coach Tom Griffith said. “They couldn’t match up size wise which is why we had that huge third quarter. Peters had a great game. For a freshman, she just has big nights.”
MWP (12-8, 10-6) is tied with Adna (12-8, 10-6) for fifth in the league, and a coin toss on Saturday will determine the seeding. The No. 5 team will host the C2BL’s No. 9 seed Pe Ell on Tuesday, while the No. 6 team will host the Pacific 2B League’s No. 7 seed North Beach. The winners will advance into the first round of the double-elimination tournament on Thursday.
