Overlake’s girls basketball team finished its season at the 1A state tournament with a loss to Elma on Feb. 27 at the Yakima Sun Dome.

In the 42-30 opening-round defeat, the Owls’ Kaku Cosmos tallied 12 points, nine rebounds and seven steals. Also for the locals, Eliza Friend had nine rebounds and Rachel Sapirstein had seven points and five rebounds.

Overlake ended up with an 18-4 overall record this season.

“We had a great season with a lot of great moments,” said head coach John Augustavo. “We just picked a bad time to play a bad game (against Elma).”

He added: “The girls learned to play as a team, and for the next few years will definitely be on top of the standings.”

Cosmos was named most valuable player on the Emerald City League all-league list and earned first-team honors with Friend. Meri Cosmos was a second-teamer and Bear Creek earned the team sportsmanship honor.

On the boys’ side, Overlake’s Trey Rudolph and Bear Creek’s Trevor McRae are all-league first-teamers; Overlake’s Alan Ngouenet and Bear Creek’s Jace Blankenbeckler are second-teamers; and Bear Creek took home the team sportsmanship honor.
