Nannies take home district trophy

Jennifer Marshall Best

EPHRATA - The Pateros girls basketball team had a sweet Valentine's Day, coming away from their close victory over Moses Lake Christian Academy as the 1B League North Division champions with a No. 1 seed to regionals.

Pateros had double the score of Moses Lake (MLCA) at the end of the first quarter, 14-7, then hit a snag in the second, scoring only seven points to MLCA's six. The snag threatened to tear the game apart for the girls in the third quarter, when MLCA returned to dominate the court with 16 points to the Nannies' three.

"With five minutes to go in the game we were down by six, 33-27," Coach Sheri Mortimer wrote in an e-mail. "With less than three minutes to go Rhiannon Easter got an offensive and hit Kim Vazquez for a dump shot that brought us within one."

Katarina Wilson nailed a three-pointer in the last 40 seconds, putting the Nannies in the lead by two. Mortimer said some last-second offensive rebounds by Lorie LeDoux and Easter, coupled with Easter's last basket from the free throw line, secured the victory.

The girls play Neah Bay at 8 p.m. Friday at Eastmont High School.

The Billygoats finished their season last week No. 1 in the 1B North League and in a respectable fourth place at district, having lost two chances for regionals.

Their last game at bi-districts was Feb. 14 against Waterville, ending 62-42. Carlos Ceniceros was the high scorer at 11 points.

But the most exciting match was Feb. 12 against Soap Lake, when Ceniceros hit a three to put the game in overtime. Soap Lake won by four points, 68-64, but Ceniceros, Mikey Piechalski and Jonathan Gelstin brought high scores to the table at 21, 21 and 16 points, respectively.

"We had a pretty good season," said Coach Marcus Stennes. "We won our league, which was a big accomplishment."

He noted that since none of this year's players are seniors, "we're all coming back next year, ready to go."
