The Emergence of Ava!
Ava played varsity this year for Meadowdale’s Lady Mavs 3A team as a freshman, and struggled often during the season, and sometimes playing JV and Varsity. The Varsity qualified for Districts, but in their first game lost to Snohomish. They had to win three games in a row to advance in the loser-out bracket. The first of three games were against Everett, and when we arrived she was being announced as a starter.
They beat Everett, then Ferndale, and had a rematch against Snohomish, winning that and advancing to Regionals. Ava played well, with nine, zero, and four points in the three games, and four in Regionals against Hudson’s Bay.
And she remained in the lineup for the the last four games until being ousted by Hudson’s Bay.
