Girls basketball: Skyview claims 4A district crown



Two goals down, more to go for the Skyview girls basketball team.

After finishing the 4A Greater St. Helens League season unbeaten, the Storm won the district title Tuesday with a 69-38 victory over Camas.

Skyview opens bi-district play at home Thursday against the loser of Tahoma vs. Emerald Ridge, which is the No. 8 seed from the South Puget Sound League. Tip off is at 7 p.m.

"The next game is the best opponent we'll have faced all year," Skyview coach Jennifer Buscher said. "That's how we've approached each game all year."

The Storm, ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press 4A state poll, dominated Camas from the start. Skyview hit four 3-pointers in building a 24-11 lead after the first quarter.

"The intensity was high," Buscher said. "But now every game means a little more."

Stephanie McDonagh scored 13 of her team-high 15 points before halftime, when Skyview led 39-22. Gen Lo added 12 points and Aubrey Ward-El had 11.

Nikki Corbett scored 15 points for Camas, which enters bi-district as the GSHL's No. 2 seed. The Papermakers will travel to play Kentridge, the No. 5 team from the SPSL at 7 p.m.
