Makana Stone bowed out a winner.

Playing in her final high school basketball game Saturday, the Coupeville High School senior piled up some nice stats to help her 1A squad upend the 2A team 87-80 at the All-State game.

Stone threw down six points, snatched six boards, rejected four shots and dealt out two assists.

“A really good game. Makana represented Coupeville well,” said CHS coach David King, who was in the stands with wife/assistant coach Amy to watch their star’s prep swan song.

The middle game of a three-game day (1B and 2B opened the day at King’s High School and 3A and 4A were to close), the 1A vs. 2A tilt was a close one.

Coming out strong, the 1A all-stars blew out to a 12-point lead in the first five minutes of the game

While the 2A squad chipped their way back into the game, Stone tallied her first points on a sweet little jump shot that found nothing but net.

Up 44-40 at the half, 1A coach Shane Wichers of Nooksack Valley inserted Stone as a starter to begin the second half.

Makana played well; she got into a good rhythm in the half,” David King said.

The 2A team banged away from the outside, draining a number of three-balls to keep things close, but the 1A stars, including Stone, closed the game with precision work at the free throw stripe.

As she and her nine new teammates basked in the glow of one final prep win, her coaches watched with pride.

“What a honor and great opportunity for Makana and the other players participating today,” David King said.
