Port Angeles: Roughrider girls win third in District, moving on to state

TACOMA — Ashley Payne scorched the nets for 25 points and Mandy Wood sank 18 to spark the Port Angeles Roughriders to third place in the West Central District on Saturday afternoon at the University of Puget Sound.

Payne, a junior guard, also had four rebounds, four assists and five steals as the Riders defeated the Thomas Jefferson Raiders 61-53 to secure a No. 1 seed at the girls basketball 4A state tournament starting on Wednesday at the Tacoma Dome.

The Riders (21-3) fulfilled three goals with the Jefferson (18-7) victory: avenging an early season loss to the Raiders, earning the state No. 1 seeding and most importantly, carrying momentum into the state tourney.
