Avalanche Black win Tumwater tournament

TUMWATER — Next Door GastroPub’s Avalanche Black eighth-grade girls basketball team went 4-0 in winning the 29th Annual KVA Memorial Tournament in Tumwater last weekend.

“Millie Long was outstanding for us this weekend on both ends of the floor,” coach Joe Marvelle said.

“I thought our defense played lights-out in all four games and really limited our opponents scoring opportunities.”

Avalanche Black defeated Shelton 46-21 to open play with Long scoring 15 points, grabbing seven rebounds, five steals and three assists.

The Port Angeles-based team then destroyed Toledo 56-14. Hannah Reetz scored 15 points and MJ Cooke had 11 points, 13 rebounds, five steals and an assist.

Long posted a team-high 17 points and seven steals in a 48-15 victory over Tumwater. Cooke scored eight points with eight rebounds, four assists and four steals.

Avalanche Black defeated 90/10 34-11 in its fourth and final game. Jada Cargo-Acosta scored six points with six rebounds, two steals and a block.
