Congratulations to Coach Leah Krautter and the Washington All-State Team for their convincing 100-61 win over the Oregon All-State Team. Madison Hovren from Central Valley was the MVP with 22 points and 8 rebounds.
“I can honestly say the WA vs OR game was one of the best experiences of my life, both on and off the court. I met so many amazing people throughout the weekend and my team and I truly became a family in such a short amount of time. The entire team spent a lot of time with each other and we easily bonded. Also, the staff and the people who helped put the event together did an outstanding job at running everything for us. They took care of many details such as organizing practices, getting us gear, and setting up a truly professional and elegant banquet that even came with a top of the line speaker who inspired everyone in attendance. The staff worked hard to make us feel like real celebrities which allowed us the ability to completely give one hundred percent on the court. Finally, I’m going to touch on the most important part of the whole weekend: the game. Playing with and against high school players of such a high caliber was a once in a lifetime experience. It was so exciting to play with that kind of talent and it’s a level of play that’s hard to find anywhere else in high school. People could have easily assumed my team had been playing together for years because we worked so well with each other. We brought out the best in each other and truly worked well as a team. The game was intense and fast paced which created a fun and exciting atmosphere for me and everyone else in the gym. That was honestly one of the best weekends of my life and I can guarantee I’ll never forget this experience.” ~ Madison Hovren
