HS BB: Calallen Sweeps "Battle of Wildcats" Against G-P

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND (Kiii Sports) - Just like in football, Calallen-G-P is once again a district battle on the hardwood for the first time in years, and Round 1 went decisively to Calallen.

Calallen won the first edition this season of the "Battle of the Wildcats" against Gregory-Portland on both the girls' and boys' side.

Calallen lead G-P by as much as 9 late, but G-P stormed back to cut the lead to just one at 50-49. Mackenzie West's shot to win it for G-P was just off as Calallen improved to 1-1 in district play. G-P dropped to 0-2 in 30-4A play with the loss.

The Calallen boys then took after and knocked off G-P 51-43, improving to 2-0 in District 30-4A.
