KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Kamiakin boys' basketball team is back in the state tournament. The Braves will play Kennedy Catholic on Thursday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.

Kamiakin almost did not make it. The Braves were down by four points late to Foss in a regional game Friday night before coming from behind. Just getting back to states is not enough for the Braves. After finishing third in Tacoma last season, the Braves have their eyes on claiming the 3A crown this time.

"You know it's a sense of relief, but we're also hungry. We want to get that state championship. It's definitely a nice feeling to be able to go to Tacoma right now after the Summer, the sprinting, the hard work we put in over four years of high school. It's a great feeling, but we're still hungry," said Justin Pedley, senior forward.

"It all started with weight lifting in the offseason, and now it's come through with the whole season being over. Now we're at states so everything that we've done in the past it all shows and it all comes out here," said Zach En'Wezoh, senior forward.
