Jamie Lange, a 6-foot senior power forward for the girls basketball team at Sumner, Wash., had three consecutive triple doubles to lead her team in the playoffs.
On Wednesday, she had 36 points and 18 rebounds in a 68-61 defeat of Lincoln (Tacoma) in the 3A West Central bidistrict semifinal. That was preceded by a 31-point, 16-rebound effort Friday in a district quarterfinal 50-39 defeat of Central Kitsap (Silverdale). Last Thursday, she had 20 points and 14 rebounds in a 57-31 defeat of Capital (Olympia).
“Jamie is the real deal,” first-year Sumner coach Jordan Moog told the Tacoma News-Tribune. “She’s a big girl, but she’s elusively fast. She doesn’t look fast, but she changes speeds, pump fakes and does a good job of still getting her shot off.”
