February 13, 2014 

The Richland High boys and the Chiawana girls basketball teams were rewarded for their strong regular seasons, cleaning up in the Mid-Columbia Conference all-league teams released Thursday.

Richland’s Nathan Streufert was named player of the year and defensive player of the year for the boys, while Chiawana’s Delaney Hodgins won the same awards on the girls side.

Earl Streufert was named coach of the year, while Riverhawks head man Steve Davis won the same award on the girls side.

Joining Streufert on the first team are teammates Payton Radliff and Jacob Devries. Kamiakin’s Kylle Robertson and Walla Walla’s Gabe Porter round out the first team.

On the girls side, Walla Walla’s Mikayla Ferenz and Madi Doepker, Hanford’s Colette Gall and Kamiakin’s Sira Toure joined Hodgins on the first team.

Both Richland High and Chiawana won regular-season titles, and will host District 5 title games Saturday against opponents yet to be determined. Both teams are three wins from reaching the state tournament. The Bombers made state last year, while Chiawana hasn’t been in three seasons.

Making the second team for the boys were Kennewick’s Mitchel Mueller, Chiawana’s Victor Koval, Walla Walla’s Ross Lake, Southridge’s Daniel Getchell and Richland’s Steven Beo.
