The Warrenton girls basketball team wrapped up the league season Friday night at home, where the Warriors scored win No. 3 of the season over Rainier, 45-23.

On Senior Night for Warrenton, junior Kenzie Ramsey poured in 16 points to lead the No. 7-ranked Warriors, who finish 9-3 in league, 18-7 overall.

Claire Bussert tossed in 15 points and Fernanda Alvarez added eight for the Warriors, who open the league playoffs Saturday (place, time and opponent to be determined).

“This group of seniors is the first group I had as freshmen when I took over as head coach, and I am a better person and coach for getting to work with them,” said Warrenton coach Robert Hoepfl. “They are all so talented and I’m going to be their biggest fan going forward. They have earned the right to keep playing the next couple weeks, and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.”
