Prosser girls ride 11-game win streak to state

YAKIMA -- Returning to the SunDome today are the Prosser girls, who won their second straight CWAC district title.

The Mustangs open at 5:30 p.m. today against Kingston.

"We've been playing pretty well," said Mustangs coach Mark Little, whose team has won 11 in a row. "We've worked hard to get where we're at. We're ready to go."

Like Fife, Prosser reached the semifinals a year ago before losing to Archbishop Murphy and then West Valley (Spokane) in the third-place game.

Prosser's path to the title game again could go through Elma, which the Mustangs beat in last year's quarterfinals, and then either AM or West Valley in the semifinals.

"We're not really looking at that right now," Little said. "We've got our hands full with Kingston. But whoever comes out of our side of the draw will be really tested."

The Buccaneers finished second in the 3A/2A Olympic League behind Port Angeles, then beat Interlake in Saturday's winner-to-state game of the WCD tournament to qualify for the third straight year.

"I know they have a guard (Sophia Baetz) who can really fill it up," Little said. "If we play well, we'll be fine. If not, it's a roll of the dice."
