The first half of the Renton Indians 2A girls Regional was just like any other game they played all season, dominate, defensive and fasted paced. The second half of the game was as if the girls never showed up, only scoring two points in the entire half to lose to W.F. West 46-22 and end the Indians drive to the state tournament in Yakima.
Their play was like day and night leading 20-14 at the half; W.F. West was unable to respond to Renton’s pace of basketball. W.F. West made just minor adjustments at the half and became to capitalize on Renton’s poor shooting. The Indians (18-7) scored their first and final points of the game with 2:04 left in the third, scored by Taylor Farris.
Renton head coach Tim White was puzzled after the game stating the his concerns for officiating despite the fact his team made only one basket in the second half, going 1-for-29 in second half possessions. “This has been good experience as we lose four seniors, returning starters Taylor Farris
and Jordan Armstrong,” he said. “This is setting up our program for future success.”
Coach White praised senior Priscilla "PJ" Tuiasosopo for her leadership and experience that helped the team win its first league title since 1987. White had hoped to make the trip to Yakima next week to give his seniors one more opportunity to play in front of college coaches for their chance at a scholarship.
