    wash got 2nd place because they didn’t play to their potential… but phacharee scored 18 points championship game got numerous rebounds per game, shot 10-12 ft shots and made them regularly, and basically played better than anyone that got 2nd team..honestly she deserves a place on 1st team.

    The first team is all messed up. I can name two people that don’t belong there, and two people from second team and honorable mention that should be on first team. These lists don’t correspond to anything. Just like the Alma Blanchard awards..

    the television commentator noted that one of the coaches from washington said that the eagles players were more atheletic than lowells. where did that come from? mental toughness wins games,and lowell kept the services of the invisible player for the whole game. the invisible player goes backand forth from one team to the next,but always plays for the team who is playing the hardest at any particular moment. her name is momentum,and she embraces much for atheleticism.
