Weekend Roundup: Van Lith Pushes Cashmere Past W.F. West

By The Chronicle

CASHMERE — Hailey Van Lith scored 30 points to lead Cashmere to a 65-55 win over W.F. West in a non-league girls basketball game here on Saturday night.

Van Lith was one rebound shy of a double-double with nine rebounds. Grace Hammond added 12 points and Grace Erdmann chipped in 11 points for the Bulldogs.

“You’d think it’s not good, it isn’t bad. She’s that good, better than any girls I’ve ever had to coach against,” W.F. West coach Tom Kelly said. “She’s pretty much unstoppable with that step back move. I can’t explain it, she’s very good.”

W.F. West was led by the double-double of Madi Haakenson, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Annika Waring tallied 12 points and Drea Brumfield added eight points and grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds.

Sarah Haakenson, in her first game of the season, scored nine points for the Bearcats.

Cashmere shot 44 percent from the field compared to W.F. West’s 40 percent shooting, but the Bearcats won the rebounding battle, 42-26. The biggest key was turnovers, with W.F. West turning the ball over 17 times.

“It was a real good game for our girls in a packed gym. They really come out and see Van Lith,” Kelly said. “I would liked to have won it but right now, we’re just trying to find our way here. It was a good trip.”

W.F. West (3-3) will compete next in the Top of the Peak Tournament, facing Lewis and Clark at 6:15 p.m. at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish on Thursday.
