Sydnee Pixlee

EPHRATA — Sydnee Pixlee will have a loaded college slate, and that’s outside of the classroom.

The dual-sport athlete at Ephrata High School recently committed to play soccer and basketball for Wenatchee Valley College.

On the pitch, Pixlee was the Central Washington Athletic Conference defensive player of the year and all-league first team defender. The Tigers allowed only four goals during league play, which was tied with Selah for lowest.

Wenatchee Valley’s women’s soccer program was 3-8-3 to finish sixth in the East Region in 2018.

Pixlee will join a Wenatchee Valley women’s basketball program that is preparing for an NWAC Tournament semifinal game this weekend and finished second in the NWAC East.

Orlando Erazo received the ball on the left side, took two touches and fired a shot past Highland’s goalie.

Wahluke improved to 2-0-1, previously tying Seattle Academy 1-1 and beating University Prep 1-0.

Wenatchee 2, Quincy 0

WENATCHEE — Quincy, in its first time outside, was unable to counter first-half scoring by Wenatchee and lost 2-0.
