The pace picked up in the second quarter and the Miners upped their swarming defense and led 23-18 at the half. The Miners are known go as senior Riley Moore goes and as Moore picked up her offense scoring 18 of her 20 points, Mackay pulled away in the second half scoring 33 points and Camas County had 19 giving Mackay the 1ADII Consolation Championship win. Senior Trinity Seefried added 16 for the Miners. Camas County junior Ashly Botz finished with nine points, seven boards and four assists, senior Sammy McFadyen followed with eight points and junior Laura Thompson had 11 rebounds.
“Mackay is very fundamentally sound. A complete team inside game and out. We ran out of steam late in the third and definitely in the fourth quarter and lost our legs and gave up some easy shots. We also missed 13 free throws,” said Camas County coach Jon Botz.
Before the game, Camas County was presented with the state academic championship and sportsmanship award.
