The 4A State Tournament kicked off at the Stoller Center on the campus of Pacific University on Thursday and similar to the 5A and 6A tournaments, the top four seeds all advanced to the semis. We got to attend the evening session where Stayton and Seaside marched on to the next round.
In the first game, Stayton survived a tight battle with Henley, 57-53. In the second game, Seaside used a huge second half surge to run past North Marion, 75-50.
Here’s a quick look at the top performers in the two games played.
Riley Nichol (2019 Stayton HS) – Stats: 23 pts, 12 reb, 9-for-16 fg
There have been games where Nichol has faded more into a supporting role but that wasn’t the case on Thursday night
