Washpun, City High Make Statement Against Kennedy

By Jeff Linder, Reporter

DES MOINES – Kiera Washpun had a career night, and Iowa City High displayed a championship-level performance.

Washpun hit 12 of 14 shots in a 31-point masterpiece as the top-ranked Little Hawks blistered Cedar Rapids Kennedy, 68-34, in a Class 5A quarterfinal at the girls' state basketball tournament Wednesday evening at Wells Fargo Arena.

"Oh, boy. That was the best (Washpun has) played in four years," City High Coach Bill McTaggart said after the Little Hawks breezed to 24-0. "When she's on like that, it absolutely opens things up like you wouldn't believe."

Washpun drilled her first six shots, including four 3-pointers. The result was a mismatch — and, for the Little Hawks, a semifinal date with No. 5 West Des Moines Dowling (21-3) at 1:45 p.m. Friday.

Dowling held off No. 4 Waukee, 62-56, Wednesday.
