Clallam Bay defeats Heritage at Regionals


Andrew Hines

Tulalip Heritage's Myrna Redleaf hits a three in the fourth quarter for the Hawks at Jackson High School on Feb. 24.

The Tulalip Heritage Hawks matched up with the Clallam Bay Bruins in a win or go home game on Feb. 24.

In the Regional Playoffs the Hawks and the Bruins played for the chance to go on to the State Tournament.

From the tip-off both teams came out timid and slow. Efficiency was low and passes were sloppy as the Bruins finished the first quarter on top, 11-7. Clallam Bay came out firing for the rest of the first half as they scored 18 points in the second quarter. Tulalip Heritage managed to find some of their game scoring 11, but still fell behind by double digits heading into halftime.

The second half was tightly contested as the Hawks looked to claw their way back to relevancy. Unfortunately for the Hawks, injury sidetracked their run heading into the fourth quarter. With a total roster of seven players, Tulalip Heritage relies on their starters to stay healthy and productive. With a couple of key Hawks starters taking extended rests due to injury, the Bruins managed to stay on top.

Clallam Bay finished with the victory on a score of 52-42.

Keryn Parks makes a quick move to attack the paint for the Hawks as they go against Clallam Bay at Jackson High School on Feb. 24.

"I really think Clallam's matchup zone was key tonight because we couldn't get in a rhythm offensively. We didn't know if we were running against a man defense or if we were running against a zone, and I take that on myself to get them in the right situations. We just couldn't get in the right set or the right rhythm. It just wasn't our night tonight," said Tulalip Heritage Head Coach Cyrus Fryberg Jr.

Keryn Parks led the Tulalip Heritage Hawks by scoring 15 points while dropping two from beyond the arc. Parks was all over the floor as she was dishing out assists and playing hardnosed defense on the opposing point guard for most of the game.

Alyia Jones was the second highest scorer for the Hawks with nine points. She played an aggressive brand of offense as she was able to get to the line for 10 free throw attempts while hitting seven of them.

The Tulalip Heritage Hawks finished with an overall record of 17-6 and are looking to reload and come back next year even stronger.
