Prep notebook: Cascade girls bowling takes 4th in state

Among other highlights: Darrington boys hoops earns at least a share of its 1st league title since 2009.

The Cascade High School girls bowling team took fourth place at the Class 4A state championships Saturday in University Place to cap coach Ron Hicks’ four-decade coaching tenure.

The Bruins finished fourth out of eight teams with a total score of 6,730 pins. Cascade senior Jessie Brambach led the way with a sixth-place individual finish, posting a six-game 1,094 series.

It was the eighth top-five state finish for the Bruins since 1999, when bowling transitioned from a club sport to a varsity sport. Hicks is stepping down after 40 seasons as Cascade’s bowling coach.

Darrington boys clinch share of league title

The Darrington boys basketball team has clinched at least a share of the Northwest 2B/1B League title. The Loggers can claim the conference crown outright with a win over La Conner in Tuesday night’s regular-season finale.

Darrington (15-4, 7-2 Northwest 2B/1B) holds a one-game lead over second-place Friday Harbor in the league standings, with one conference game remaining for both teams. Darrington and Friday Harbor split their regular-season series.

It’s been a massive turnaround for the Loggers over the past two seasons. Prior to last year’s 15-win campaign, Darrington hadn’t won more than four games in a season since 2008-09.
