If I could make a couple of quick observation about the EV girls.
First, Fishth your right it was 2 years ago that they took 3rd in state, as my daughter was the starting point. Also, understand that that was the first year of re-alignment. Schools like Black Hills Ellensburg, Prosser, River Ridge, Tumwater etc. moved into 2A. I believe River Ridge had placed 2nd to Chief Sealth (which was involved in a recurring infraction) in 3A a year or two before they moved down, which made them the largest 2A school the first year. Last year EV didnít go to state, but lost to E-Burg by 4(?) but they were in controlled the entire game till about the last 2 mins we couldnít execute a couple of post shots in districts or we would have been in state again. Then E-burg played in the championship game, but lost to River Ridge by 1 (back to back titles for RR). So, point being that these EV teams post Cleveland, still had and have the talent and ability to play with the best. Yes, they will have their ups and downs, h**l everyone wants to beat EV. It just goes to show that EV was so close to placing again at State, but because they didnít make it, their program is being questioned.
As far as this years team, plenty of talent and speed. Bottom line the 2 big girls need to play with some intensity consistently. Looking at the box scores from the Prosserís game looks like they need to work on shooting 3 balls and free throws. Prosser is a great team, you canít shoot 12 for 23 FT and 3 for 16 3 balls and expect to win. Iíve said this many times on this site, no use working on the Xís and Oís if you canít execute them.
