Five players to watch

Jadyn Bush

Wing, 6-0, So., Bishop Blanchet

The ultracompetitive Bush possesses a high basketball IQ and enjoys tough play in the paint. Look for her to pop out for some jumpers this season.

Camariah King

Point guard, 5-6, Sr., Holy Names

Fiery defender takes command on the court as a dynamic leader. King is a deadly three-point shooter who has signed with the University of Nevada.

Jayla Russ

Forward, 6-0, Jr., Arlington

The silky-smooth Russ has made it look easy since helping the Eagles reach the 4A state championship game as a freshman. Plays big in big games.

Shelby Cansler

Guard, 6-0, Jr., Bellevue

A third-year starter, Cansler creates scoring opportunities with a variety of moves and shows good touch with the basketball. A reason Bellevue has title hopes.

Juanita Agosto

Guard, 5-7, So., Garfield

An outstanding finisher with a nose for the basket, Agosto exploded onto the prep scene as a freshman with a 47-point outing against Redmond. Her best is yet to come.

Five teams to watch

Lynnwood

Coming off a third-place finish in the Class 4A state tournament, their best, the Royals have all of the ingredients to climb all the way to the top as a 3A team this season.

Beamer

The Titans hope to get over the top this season after injuries derailed promising runs the past two years. They are super quick with a variety of scoring options, led by Quinessa Caylao-Do and Nia Alexander.

Glacier Peak

WesCo 3A is loaded this season and the Grizzlies should be right in the mix of things, thanks in large part to senior wing Sadie Mensing, who does a little bit of everything. This is a team with trophy potential.

Bishop Blanchet

Once tournament regulars, the Braves re-emerged with a young squad last year, reaching the title game before losing to Cleveland. They’ve got the same kind of potential this season, but the Metro League looks brutal.

Liberty

The Patriots reached the regional round in 3A last season before getting knocked out by eventual-champion Cleveland. Now they’ve dropped to 2A and envision a deeper run. They will get well-tested in KingCo 3A/2A.
