The Blues basketball team is prepping for the 2013-‘14 season, following on the heels of last year’s success.

Last season St. Mary’s Academy’s varsity basketball team finished 19-9 and reached the 6A OSAA State Championships at the Rose Garden for the third consecutive year, placing seventh.

Leading the way is senior and recent Weber State University signee Cece Wooten. Martina McCowan enters her junior year as a three-year varsity member, and First Team OSAA 6A All-State Tournament team member. Tyschal Blake also begins her third year on the varsity team after earning First Team All-Mt. Hood Conference honors the previous season.

St. Mary’s will take part in the Nike Interstate Shootout at Lake Oswego High School Dec. 27- 30. The Blues made the finals in 2010, semifinals in 2011, and placed fifth in 2012.

League play begins with a road game at rival Central Catholic on Jan. 7, followed by St. Mary’s last non- league game hosting Jesuit on Jan. 10.
