HELIX — Walla Walla Valley Academy’s girls basketball team claimed the championship of the annual Helix Christmas tournament that wrapped up here Saturday.

The Knights, now 5-4 on the season, upended Klickitat, 47-29, on Saturday after toppling the host Grizzlies, 60-38, on Friday.

WVVA emerged victorious despite the absence of point guard Amy Arnzen due to a prior commitment.

Not to worry.

Emily Field filled in nicely with 48 points in the two games including a 30-point effort on Friday.

“On Friday, Emily scored in every quarter even though she was in foul trouble,” WWVA coach Lloyd Redberg said. “She had a good tournament and has had back-to-back-to-back solid games.

“The girls played really well and did a lot of things well,” Redberg said. “It was an opportunity for everyone else to pick up the slack. We got big leads at halftime and had a chance to work on some things. It was a good tournament for us.”

The Knights open Southeast 2B League play Tuesday when they host DeSales.
