Submitted photo – The Ferndale girls closed out the Little 4 with a record of 6-0.

The Ferndale girls are showing no signs of slowing down.

On Friday night, they closed out a perfect league campaign in Little 4 basketball, winning 49-33 at Hoopa.

“The team has worked hard this season and ending league play undefeated is a well-earned accomplishment,” head coach Terra Albee said.

With the win, the Cats close out league play 6-0 and are now 7-0 against H-DNL teams and 15-2 overall.

Kyla Albee finished with a double-double in the win, scoring 11 points and grabbing 17 rebounds, while also dishing out six assists and blocking four shots.

As always, it was a team effort by the league champs.

“I am so humbled and grateful for an unselfish team that shares the ball,” Terra Albee said. “You never know, on any given night, who might step up and have a big night. On many occasions It has been multiple players contributing.”

Reaghan Langer scored 16 points in the win, to go with eight rebounds and two assists; Emily Chavez finished with 11 points, five assists, four boards and two steals; Carly Carmesin had eight points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals; and Tia Henrikson added three points.

“We also take pride in our defense, which has kept us in many of our games,” the head coach said. “Because of this our team has been successful.”

The Wildcats will now advance to next week’s Dick Niclai tournament, where they are a No. 1 seed and will have an opening-round bye before hosting either Arcata, McKinleyville or Fortuna in a semifinal on Thursday.

If they win that game, the Ferndale girls will host the tournament championship on Friday night.
