The Edmonds-Woodway girls basketball team ended its 2011-12 season Tuesday night with a 46-36 District 1 playoff loss to Stanwood on the Spartans’ home court. Senior Madeline Kasper scored 17 in her final game for the Warriors, leaving a legacy of four seasons as a varsity starter and two trips to the state 4A girls basketball tournament.
For her efforts, Warrior Radio named Kasper the Revelations Yogurt Player of the Game
Stanwood jumped out to an early lead and was ahead 16-11 at halftime. After outscoring the Spartans 14-8, the Warriors held a one-point advantage at the end of three, but the Spartans came out strong in the fourth quarter and the Warriors were unable to recover.
Seyi Olajoyegbe had five blocks and eight rebounds for E-W.
Kasper was the team’s only senior. Her younger sister Natalie–also a starter as a freshman–will return next year, as will starters Samone Jackson — also a freshman — sophomore Sidney Eck, and junior Olajoyegbe. Other players on this year’s squad included Madeline Nealey, Mikenna Vogel, Leah Bakken, Claire Fyfe and Shakeisha Spencer.
