Falcons head to state semifinals Thursday

En route to the Falcons' state quarterfinal win over Crater (52-43) on Tuesday, Taycee Wedin '18 set the record for the most three-pointers made by a high school girl in Oregon.
 
Wedin's three three-pointers during the game gave her 354 career three-pointers - one more than the 353 Shoni Schimmel made while at Franklin and Hermiston high schools before becoming a college All-American and star in the Women's National Basketball Association.
 
The Falcons, who won the 5A title in 2015 and 2017, will play Bend in a semifinal game at 3:15 pm on Thursday, March 8, in Oregon State's Gill Coliseum.
 
"Once you get here, you just have to be really, really tough, said Coach Kellli Wedin. "Every team here has 20-plus wins, every team knows how to win."
 
The Falcons, she said, will focus on "being tough, being resilient, and being gritty...Those are the things that separate teams."

Go Falcons!
