With all the big-school talent on display at Sunday’s WAVOR girls basketball matchup between Washington and Oregon’s best seniors, the two leading scorers came from each team’s smallest schools. 

Kyra Gardner, the pride of Class 2B Raymond and a Washington State signee, led Washington with 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting in a 126-91 victory at Liberty High School in Hillsboro

Oregon’s top scorer was Sage Kramer of Philomath, who had 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting to go with six rebounds and two assists. The Class 4A player of the year as a sophomore and a four-time Oregon West Conference player of the year enjoyed the opportunity to share the stage with big-name competition with whom she’d played club ball growing up.

“It was just a chance to get to play with some of the best girls in the state,” Kramer said. “It was fun to reunite with them, running up and saying hi to everyone, catching up and getting to play one last time before we all head off to college.”

Kramer signed during the early period with Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Calif., which reached the Round of 16 of the NAIA National Championships in Sioux City, Iowa. She’ll join two other Oregonians on the roster — Kirsten Koehnke, a redshirt sophomore guard, and redshirt junior forward Sydney Brown, who both went to Salem Academy.

“I met Coach (Kirsten) Moore at a tournament in California last July, and she told me about Westmont,” Kramer said. “We talked on the phone later, and I just went down for a visit and loved it there. I loved the atmosphere, the girls on the team. I had a couple of other schools I was talking to, but when you know, you kind of know. I really could tell that was the one.”
