Bulldog-NE team tops Hoopfest bracket


Bracket winners with a 4-0 run at Hoopfest included, from the left, Asher Cai of Colfax, Mya Edwards of Kettle Falls, Anni Bergquist of St. George's and Hannah Baerlocher of Colfax.

A team made up of two members of last season's Colfax girls hoop team and two player from other NE League schools topped their bracket at Spokane's big Hoopfest event last weekend.

Asher Cai and Hannah Baerlocher, who played out the winter's campaign as freshmen on the Colfax varsity, teamed with Mya Edwards of Kettle Falls and Anni Bergquist of St. Georges for a 4-0 run in the eight team girls recreational bracket for 15-year-olds.

They played as the "Check Me Out" team.

Cai, Baerlocher and Edwards also took their bracket last year in the big Spokane event. Sydney Berquist of Colfax was the other player on last year's winners.

They played both Saturday and Sunday in the Spokane street event.

The Colfax players and other two players play on the Northwest Express summer team coached by Colfax Coach Corey Barlocher.

Coach Baerlocher noted he leaves the coaching up to the members of the team for the 3 on 3 format for Hoopfest. He said he tries to follow to act as an interested spectator with possibly a few comments on officiating should the need surface.

The Express team has tournaments coming up in Oregon, Chicago and California during the balance of the summer campaign.
