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.

Toppenish 71, Clarkston 69
