Four players scored in double figures and the Beavers wrapped up another league championship with steady play against the visiting Chinooks.

Jessica Flanagan -- who finished with 18 points, five assists, five rebounds and three steals -- assisted on both of those 3-pointers.

"Our girls played composed," Woodland coach Glen Flanagan said. "They've been in some big games before and played a steady, level-headed game."
