Led by a trio of players from Oregon, the Northwest Blazers’ Orange team won the Arizona Elite NCAA-certified high school girls basketball tournament, held July 23-25 in Phoenix.

An Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) 17U Top Division team, the Orange are led by Abby Anderson of Glencoe High School, N’Dea Flye from Oregon City, and Seaside High School’s Maddi Utti, a senior-to-be for the Gulls next season.

The tournament was played in front of college coaches from across the West, and represented the sixth-straight finals appearance for the Northwest Blazers in their sixth National NCAA-certified event this season.

The Blazers went 5-0 in the Arizona Elite tournament, scoring wins over Team Arizona Red Elite (47-33) and the AZ Sting-Slaga (40-28) in Saturday pool play, and victories over Team Bibby Girlz (57-23) and the Clutch Players-Red (33-32) Sunday.

In Monday’s championship game, the Blazers cruised past Arizona Elite Black, 57-44.

The Blazers conclude their season in the Adidas Nationals, this week in Atlanta, Ga.
