The Chiawana High School boys Basketball game was quite the experience for those in attendance. A Chiawana senior was "blown away by how big the crowd was." Tuesday night the Chiawana Riverhawks took on the Pasco Bulldogs in basketball at the Chiawana gym. The game was neck in neck until the end when the Riverhawks narrowly escaped with a 68-67 win. With 30 seconds left in the game Pasco gained possetion of the ball; it went from Jeremy Streicher, who had the game high of 23 points, then the ball was passed to Jeremy Le Mieux. Then in the final 3 seconds Le Mieux passed the ball to Ponce who scored a 2-point shot, but it was no good; the shot was made after the buzzer went off. The Riverhawks were elated and rushed onto the court, met by a crowd of student fans.
