GAME WE’RE INTRIGUED BY
Selah-Renton: It’s a rematch of the 2019 2A state semifinals with an extra twist: win or go home. Selah upended 2-seed Columbia River last year in the regional round and won its way to a semifinal matchup against hot and surging 13-seed Renton. Selah won, 61-56, en route to a second place finish; Renton finished third. This time around, both teams are young and talented. Selah has the regional advantage. But Renton has proved its no stranger to an upset.
