Print Article

WARDEN ­— Warden took a crucial first step in qualifying for the 1A Hardwood Classic.

Warden, ranked seventh in the RPI, beat Cle Elum/Roslyn 65-41 in its district tournament opener.

“I was wondering if they were going to come out tight,” head coach Josh Madsen said.

The Cougars certainly did not, jumping out to a 25-4 lead after one quarter. The first and third quarters were the difference, said Madsen.

A balanced scoring effort was led by senior Bailey Whitney’s 17 points. Freshmen trio Kiana Rios, Rylee McKay and Jaryn Madsen combined for 42 points; Rios and McKay scored 16 apiece and Madsen had 10.

“The energy level was awesome,” Josh Madsen said.

The Cougars will play the winner of SCAC West No. 2 Granger and East No. 3 Royal in the semifinals on Saturday.
