CdA’s Williams devotes season to winning title

 Coeur d’Alene senior basketball standout Sydney Williams has done everything but win a state championship.

So one can imagine what’s chief on her to-do list this season.

“It’s disappointing, because before this year I’ve wanted to win one for the seniors each time,” Williams said. “Now I’m a senior.”

She’s playing with a sense of urgency.

As a part-time starter as a freshman, Williams’ team lost to 5A Inland Empire League rival Lewiston in the title game.

The following year, CdA stubbed its toe in the semifinals, falling to Centennial 58-56. To this day, Williams believes her team was measurably better than Centennial.

Then last year, CdA lost to Post Falls in overtime in the final. More here. Greg Lee, SR
