WENATCHEE - The Wa-Hi girls split a pair of games here Tuesday and Wednesday during tournament basketball play at Wenatchee High School.

Lake Stevens upended the Blue Devils 53-34 in Tuesday's first round of play before the Walla Wallans bounced back to win on Wednesday by a 39-36 margin over Snohomish.

Wenatchee defeated Snohomish 35-31 on Wednesday and Lake Stevens claimed the tournament championship on Thursday with a 55-30 victory over the Panthers.

The Blue Devils return to action Jan. 6 when they host Davis in a Big Nine Conference game and then the Blue Devils return to Wenatchee on Jan. 7 to meet the Panthers in Big Nine play.

Wa-Hi fell behind Snohomish 9-4 after one quarter Thursday but outscored the Cougars 17-8 in a decisive second period and went to the locker room at halftime leading 21-16.

Torri Crawford set the pace for the Blue Devils in Thursday's win as she posted game-high totals of 16 points and eight rebounds. McKayla Ferenz scored six points and had a game-high six assists, and Kate Ferenz also scored six points.

Kristina Bride led the Cougars with nine points.

The Blue Devils outrebounded Snohomish 42-34 but were guilty of 21 turnovers in the game. However, that was nothing compared to the 32 turnovers Wa-Hi was charged with in Wednesday's loss to Lake Stevens.

In that game, Wa-Hi fell behind 33-17 at halftime and was unable to make up any ground in the second half.

Brooke Pahukoa and Katie Goddard scored 14 points each for Lake Stevens and Brittney Pahukoa was also in double figures with 10.

Maddy Sirmon paced Wa-Hi with 11 points.
