CLASS A WEST WASHINGTON REGIONAL: Rivet’s defense too much for Borden

Rademacher says goodbye to four successful seniors



Ruedinger was the lone Borden player to score in double figures with 15 points, making seven out of her 16 field-goal attempts. She was one rebound away from a double-double, as she grabbed a game-high nine boards.

Braves’ center Carson Casey had eight points. Ellis had a team-high five assists and four steals, while teammate Shelby Kirchgessner wound up with a game-high five steals and four assists.

Borden’s defense was pretty solid throughout the contest as well. The Braves forced 19 turnovers and kept the Patriots under 50 percent shooting from the floor at 47.7 percent (21-of-44).

But the Braves did not take advantage of Rivet’s miscues because of their shooting woes.

“They’re an outstanding defensive team, but I think we are, too,” Rademacher said. “We forced a tremendous number of turnovers against an awful good team. We just couldn’t get anything accomplished at the offensive end.

“Some of the what people would consider easy baskets that we may have given up, they would not remember them as much if we would have converted off of steals. But we kept playing and kept playing and had good composure. We ran out of time.”

After the game, Rademacher lauded his four seniors in Casey, Ellis, Kirchgessner and Sarah Hurst for their contributions during their high school careers. The quartet helped the Braves win three sectional championships and two outright Southern Athletic Conference titles during their four seasons in the program. That includes Borden’s conference and sectional crowns this year.

“My focus right now is recognizing the outstanding season we had, and the tremendous accomplishments that our seniors have had over the last four years,” Rademacher said. “Our seniors have been a part of three sectional championships in four years. They had some great and successful regular seasons.
