LAKE OSWEGO — South Medford survived a sluggish, tight contest against Washington's best girls basketball team to make it to the championship game of the Nike Interstate Shootout Thursday.

The Panthers, 9-0 and the top-ranked Class 6A Oregon team, defeated Woodinville, Wash., which is No. 1 in Class 4A, the largest division in the state, 47-42 at Lakeridge High.

South Medford, which climbed to No. 6 in the MaxPrep national rankings on Thursday, faces perennial power and third-ranked Oregon City for the title at 8 tonight. Oregon City (10-1) defeated No. 4 St. Mary's.

"We seemed a step slower," said South Medford coach Tom Cole. "It's the holidays, the kids are tired and banged up. We're doing the most we can with what we have."

Point guard Yaremi Mejia turned an ankle early in the contest and tried to play through it. With her hobbled, the Panther offense was out of rhythm, said Cole.

Woodinville (7-1) played a part, too, with a physical lineup that includes two 6-foot-2 players.

South Medford shot only 33 percent in its lowest-scoring game of the season.

Andee Ritter had 14 points and Kylie Towry 13 in the win. Tess Picknell grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked three shots to go with five points.

The Panthers also got eight points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists from Ashley Bolston.
