PASCO, Wash. -- The Chiawana girls basketball team looks to make another run at a state title.

The Riverhawks play Central Valley Saturday night in Spokane. Chiawana lost to Central Valley back in December but has not lost since. Last weekend, the Riverhawks won their third straight district title. Coming off of last seasons third place finish in states, the team says its ready to go even deeper this time.

"This group of girls I think -  it's a lot more of a team attitude. I think they bond a lot better out on the court and I don't think anybody tries to step up and be the superstar. It's all about just winning the game at the end and I think that's something this team is really strong about," said Steve Davis, Chiawana head coach.

"As long as we play together we're a really good team and all of us are gifted in our own way, and if we play our parts in the game we'll be good," said Danielle Loving, junior guard.
