U-Hi, LC girls and Ferris boys punch state ticket


University and Lewis and Clark's girls basketball team is headed back to state, as is the undefeated Ferris boys.

Those berths were decided Friday night at the Con Agra Foods/LambWeston 4A basketball regional in Kennewick's Toyota Center, where the U-Hi girls defeated Mead, 73-54, and LC stopped Shadle Park, 61-46. The Ferris boys raced past Mead, 72-59, to ensure a spot next week in Tacoma.

The Mead boys will face Shadle Park, a 59-57 winner over Gonzaga Prep in a loser-out game, Saturday at 1 p.m. for the right to play for the third boys berth. The other berth will go to the Eisenhower/Pasco winner, going on now.

On the girls' side, Mead will face Pasco and Shadle will face Moses Lake at 11 a.m. Saturday. The winners will play at 7 p.m. for the third berth.
