Girls basketball in Eastern Washington is consistently played at a high level each year. 4A District 8 playoffs between the Greater Spokane League (GSL) and Mid Columbia Conference (MCC) have already provided some high level basketball in round one. We saw a mixture of results in the four games between an upset, blowout and surprising outcome.

Overall View:

GSL: 3 wins, +35 total point spread

Gonzaga Prep 58 - Walla Walla 46

Mead 50 - Chiawana 44

Central Valley 79 - Richland 44

MCC: 1 win, -35 total point spread

Pasco 57 - University 39

Biggest Upset:

(7) Mead's win over (2) Chiawana was the biggest upset of round one, by far. Mead entered into the game just 13-7 to Chiawana's 18-2 overall record. Nonetheless, the Panthers refused to back down from the Riverhawks and ultimately came away with the big victory.

2020 5'8 PG Joelnell Momberg was impressive throughout for Mead, scoring inside and out. She finished 4-6 from the 3 line and hit five free throws on her way to 21 points on 6-12 overall shooting. The Montana signee also grabbed 7 rebounds. 2022
