Their season ended up short of a return trip to the state tournament, but the Warrenton girls basketball team at least picked up some good news last week, with one of their two seniors selected to the 3A all-state team.

As voted on by coaches throughout the state, Warrenton’s Kenzie Ramsey made honorable mention, just missing out on third team honors.

The Clatskanie Tigers successfully defended their state title, defeating Sutherlin 51-40 in the 3A state championship game March 7 at Marshfield High School.

As a result, Clatskanie junior Shelby Blodgett was voted 3A Player of the Year, and the Tigers’ John Blodgett was named Coach of the Year.

Of the six players on the first team, the top five were juniors. Five more juniors were on the second team.

Clatskanie junior Olivia Sprague joined Shelby Blodgett on the first team, and Tiger junior Kaity Sizemore was selected honorable mention.

At the 2A level, Kennedy senior Sophia Carley was the Player of the Year, and Kennedy’s Kerry and Peter Hall were Coaches of the Year.
