Best Of State 2020: #20 Meridian Girls vs. Annie Wright

TOP 20 OF STATE 2020: Counting down the best games involving Whatcom County teams from March’s state tournaments.

#20 Annie Wright 76, Meridian girls 46

The Trojans lost to the Gators and all-stater Julianna Walker in Wednesday’s opening round of the Class 1A state tournament, but the season-ending loss didn’t take away from Meridian’s impressive playoff run.

The “Road Warriors” played 10 playoff games, all on the road, including an incredible eight in 12 days. They also won four loser-out games to get to state.
