TACOMA, Wash - Ashley Corral capped her high school career with 15 points, including a 9-of-10 performance from the free throw line, and Prairie used a late run to beat Pasco 51-39 and take third-place at the Class 4A girls state tournament on Saturday.
Prairie (21-4) brought home a state trophy for the 11th consecutive year and for the 22nd time in school history.
Morgan Sullivan scored 20 points for Pasco (22-8), which finished in sixth place, and earned its seventh state trophy. The last piece of hardware for the Bulldogs came in 2003 when they finished fourth.
Prairie, bouncing back from a semifinal loss to two-time defending state champion Lewis & Clark, was down 26-24 early in the third quarter when it went on a 10-0 run. Corral started it with a layup, and the Falcons then converted three consecutive Pasco turnovers into points.
Pasco twice got within three points early in the fourth quarter, the last time at 38-35. But Corral hit a pair of free throws to start the game-clinching 9-0 run, and the Bulldogs didn't get back on the board until 1:13 remained, by which time the Falcons were 12 points in front.
