During this weekend’s state tournament, the team won its first three games 39-15 (vs. Camas), 48-41 (vs. Liberty) and 29-24 (semifinal rematch vs. Liberty), eventually losing in the final to state champion, Tahoma.

The roster of sixth graders includes:

Madi Daviscourt

Amara Leckie
Amina Mandac
Charlee Manning

The team is coached by two graduates of Edmonds-area high schools — Quinn Manning and Matt Manning.
