Nilles, Bulldogs fight through adversity with a smile
Unbeaten Gonzaga Prep football and girls basketball teams and coaches swept the 2015 Inland Northwest Sportswriters and Broadcasters youth awards honors, winning the trophies in six categories.
Homecomings always should feel this cozy.
Jessie Loera of Moses Lake, regarded as one of the best guards in her class in the nation, has given Gonzaga an oral commitment.
They had one basketball but they could have used several for the talent-rich teams in the 22nd annual Jack Blair Memorial game. That’s not to mean the players were too selfish. Far from it.
The Greater Spokane League girls basketball players who will play in the Jack Blair Memorial Classic are arguably the best assembled group the game has seen. Consider: The two-time most valuable player, Otiona Gildon of Gonzaga Prep, is headed to the University of Oregon. First-team selections Sue Winger (Idaho) of Mead, Laura Stockton (Gonzaga) of G-Prep, Michaela Kay (Portland State) of Lewis and Clark, Madison Hovren (Army) of Central Valley and Riley Lupfer (Boise State) of LC are headed to play at NCAA Division I schools, too.
Madison Hovren is having quite the time on the girls basketball all-star game circuit. The Central Valley senior was named most valuable player as Washington hammered Oregon in the Northwest Shootout game at Hillsboro, Oregon, last Saturday.
Gonzaga Prep basketball standouts and good friends Otiona Gildon and Laura Stockton have played in a lot of games together in their four-year prep careers. They’ve been part of nearly 100 victories and two state championships.
NEW YORK – For the first time this season – perhaps the first time in two years – the Gonzaga Prep girls basketball team didn’t finish. Possessing a five-point lead with under three minutes to play, Gonzaga Prep missed shots it normally makes and committed two costly turnovers in the final minute as Miami Country Day prevailed 60-59 in the Dick’s Sporting Goods/ESPN national high school tournament Friday morning at Christ the King High School.
The core of the Gonzaga Prep girls basketball team has played in big games. Seniors Otiona Gildon, Oona Harrington, Lauren Weir and Laura Stockton have been to national club tournaments and won national championships.
For the third time in three weeks, Gonzaga Prep basketball standout Laura Stockton has garnered a player-of-the-year honor. Stockton was named the overall player of the year and 4A POY in Washington by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Cheney must hire boys and girls basketball coaches – again. The Blackhawks have gone through basketball coaches in recent years like a teen-ager through socks.
TACOMA – As opening statements go, the Gonzaga Prep girls basketball team earned an A. Bullpups coach Mike Arte was satisfied, but not content.
Laura Stockton understands there’s celebrity attached to her last name. That doesn’t define who she is, though, as far as she’s concerned. When it comes to her development as the daughter of an NBA Hall of Fame player, Stockton admits she has had tutorial assistance that her peers haven’t had.
So whether the defending State 4A girls basketball champions were going to win Saturday wasn’t the question. It was the execution and efficiency that pleased Gonzaga Prep coach Mike Arte most.
At game’s end, before heading to the locker room, Mead girls basketball coach Quantae Anderson stopped and asked how many turnovers his team committed. When Anderson was told it was nearly as many as the points his team scored, he shook his head.
You could hear it in Kelly Graves’ voice. The former Gonzaga women’s basketball coach, in his first year in a major rebuilding project at Oregon, can’t wait for the arrival of Gonzaga Prep standout Otiona Gildon next year.
If you’ve been around prep sports as long as I have – 30 years and counting – you’re bound to see odd things once in a while. Until Tuesday, though, a basketball shoe had never been thrown at me. In this case it wasn’t intentional, but it got my attention.
Laura Stockton gave up 6 inches to Katie McWilliams but was Friday night’s standout at Lewis and Clark. Stockton scored a game-high 23 points and helped hold the Oregon State-bound McWilliams to 13 as defending State 4A champion Gonzaga Prep waltzed past Oregon 6A power South Salem 53-40 to open girls play at the fourth Dan Fitzgerald Memorial Basketball Tournament.
Mike Arte says his State 4A defending champion Gonzaga Prep girls basketball team has a long way to go before its final destination. If he’s talking about the Tacoma Dome, well his Bullpups know the way.
