Ending on a High Note
Highline Thumps Gators in Sophomores' Final Home Game

Feb. 25  – in its final home game of the season, Highline said goodbye to its seven graduating sophomores and hello to 20 minutes of the best basketball it has played all year in roaring back from an eight point halftime deficit to defeat the Green River Gators 77-58 (stats). One of those sophomores, Brittany Barrington, led the Thunderbirds with 24 points while Chardonnae Miller added 12 points and seven rebounds and Justina Laney chipped with 11 points. Green River was led by Jjessica Norlander’ 27 points.

It was cold shooting (28%) and turnovers (10) that plagued Highline during the first half, with Green River leading by as many as 11 points. The second half was a completely different story for both the Thunderbird offense and defense.  The team shot 50% and forced 18 Green River turnovers, using a 12-2 right out of halftime to take the lead, ended up outscoring Green River 48-21 in the final 20 minutes.

Highline has one game left in the regular season, Feb. 28 at Clark College.  With the win, the Thunderbirds, already assured of a playoff spot, are 12-3 in the NWAC West Division and 18-10 for the season.

Game Notes:  Graduating sophomores include Brittany Barrington, Shelby Collins, Kayla Ivy, Justina Lacey, Ionna Price, Calli Remitz, and Allie Weathersby.  Highline outrebounded Green River 47-37, including a 20-9 edge on the offensive boards.

Going Out a Winner
Sophomores Spark Win in Last Home Game

Feb. 25 -  The hot shooting got the party going but it was a blocked shot by Isom Brown that brought the crowd to its feet as Highline took control of the game from the outset in a 84-61 (stats)  win over Green River.  With the win Highline (21-6) maintains first place in the NWAC West Division at 13-2, with the division championship on the line on Feb. 28 when the Thunderbirds visit second place Clark College (12-3). 

Highline got off to a blistering start, taking a 20-2 lead behind a rain of three-point shots by sophomores Madison McCaffrey (19 points), Doug McDaniel (12 points), and Ben Tucakovic (14 points).  The play of the game, however, came on the defensive end when Isom Brown sprinted the length of the court and blocked the breakaway layup attempt of a Green River guard. Although Green River would play Highline pretty evenly in the second half, the Thunderbirds 24 point halftime lead proved far too much for the Gators to overcome.  In addition to the sophomores, Thunderbird Remeake Keith had a fine game with 14 points, seven rebounds, and three blocked shots in 19 minutes of play.

Game Notes:  Graduating sophomores include AJ Banks, Isom Brown, Jimmy Keum, Harold Lee, Madison McCaffrey, Doug McDaniel, Ben Tucakovic.  Highlline shot 58% in the first half and 52% for the game, scoring 25 points from 18 Green River turnovers. The Thunderbirds bench outscored that of Green River 27-18.
