January 2017 Newsletter

One of the biggest needs that coaches are confronted with is putting our kids in uniforms.  To help meet this need, the Booster Club is starting a uniform subsidy program that will give each sports team money every 4 years to repair/replace uniforms.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!  To meet this need, we are hosting a silent auction and raffle on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at the Kennewick vs Kamiakin basketball game.  We need donations to make this auction a success.  Donations can be dropped off at the Activities Office at Kennewick High or sent to Katy Woolery, 2624 W 6th Place, Kennewick, 99336.  Spread the word and plan to attend the event!  Go Lions!

In December, the girls and boys basketball teams joined forces with Buffalo Wild Wings for a fundraiser.  Thank you Buffalo Wild Wings for supporting our amazing student-athletes and coaches.

Walmart

Walmart continues to financially support Kennewick High student-athletes through their Volunteering Always Pays (VAP) program.  Walmart employee Tyler Marquardt volunteers his time at football, basketball, and baseball games.  Walmart donates $1,000 every year due to Tyler's generous donation of his time.  Thank you Tyler and thank you Walmart!

Allstate - Groth Family Insurance

Allstate donates money to non-profit organizations when an Allstate affiliated business or employee donates their time to the organization.  Father/Son team Duane and Jerad Groth (Groth Family Insurance) volunteered their time.  Allstate donated $2,000 to the boys basketball team!  Thank you Duane and Jerad.  Thank you Allstate!

Boys Basketball - Lions Get 2nd Win 78-62 Over Hoquiam

BOYS BASKETBALL

KENNEWICK 78, HOQUIAM 62: Jenner Norwood had 22 points and 15 rebounds, and Saul Nieves added 18 points to lead the Loins to a win at the SunDome Shootout in Yakima.

Kennewick (2-4) was cookin’ on offense all night, but things really started to sizzle during a 28-point second quarter.

“Nieves was able to hit some shots from deep to get us going,” Lions coach Bradyn Leyde said. “In the second half, we were able to play some aggressive defense, get some stops and turn it into points.”

Kennewick is back on the SunDome court at 7:30 p.m. Friday against hometown Davis.

HOQUIAM: Jack Adams 22, Spradlin 9, Esedal, Eccles 2, Nash 2, Dayton 1, Folkers, James 15, Varner 11. Totals: 22-53 11-18 62.

Lady Lions - Defeat Hanford 64-42

KENNEWICK 64, HANFORD 42: Freshman point guard Aislin Fiander scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Lions to a rout on their home court in MCC play

“(Fiander) played very well tonight and was good about getting the ball out to other people” Kennewick coach Ashley Williams said. “She worked well out of our press — we pressed a lot tonight.”

While Fiander led Kennewick (3-2, 1-1) on the scoring end, it was the Lions’ defensive effort that allowed them to pull away from Hanford (2-4, 0-2). Hailey Quast and Maya Thornton had six steals apiece as the Falcons scored just six points in the third quarter and seven in the fourth.

HANFORD: Beaver, Motta 12, Moore 3, Mars, Sijgers 9, Coleman, Kison 2, Best, Webb 1, Harlow 4, Dye 11.
