LEWISTON — Walla Walla High School’s Mikayla Ferenz locked up MVP honors in style as she helped the Blue Devils defend their title at the Lewiston Holiday Tournament Saturday.

Ferenz dropped a game-high 23 points on 7-of-16 shooting and added four rebounds and two assists as Wa-Hi rolled, 48-31, against Colfax.

“We won this game with our defense,” Wa-Hi head coach Jill Meliah said. “Mikayla took the game over offensively. One of our goals was to defend this championship, so I’m proud of the girls for achieving that goal. We got better this weekend and that’s always a good thing.”

The Blue Devils defeated the tourney host, Lewiston High School, 44-41, in double overtime on Friday.

The trio of Jaiden Hodnefield, Pamela Patton and Maddy Sirmon each scored seven points. Wa-Hi’s defense restricted Colfax to only 10-26 shooting on the night, as the Bulldogs managed only one field goal in both the second and fourth quarters.

The Blue Devils also held an advantage on the boards, as Wa-Hi hauled in 29 total rebounds, including 13 offensive boards, compared to only 17 total rebounds for the Bulldogs.
