Jacey Ramelow and Claire Dingus scored 16 points apiece and University (17-7) eliminated Chiawana (19-6) 61-55 in the District 8 4A third-place game at the Spokane Arena on Friday to earn a trip to the regional round of state.

U-Hi, the GSL third seed, led by 11 at intermission but MCC No. 1 seed Chiawana stormed back, led by Kenedy Cartwright, who scored all of her team-high 19 points in the second half.

Cartwright put the Riverhawks up by one with a little over 2 minutes left, but Kinsley Barrington hit both ends of a 1-and-1 and the Titans continued to make free throws as Chiawana was forced to foul.

“The pressure of the Arena and the game got to us a little bit but when it came down to the end calm heads prevailed,” University coach Jay Kennedy said.

Elli Boni added 15 points for U-Hi and Barrington finished with 12.
