SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Windward's brilliant season and playoff run ended in a 62-51 loss to Salesian College Prep on Saturday, but not before Princeton commit Skye Belker dropped a game-high 21 points in the CIF Division I State finals.

Despite the loss, the match was another solid offensive showing for the Wildcats. And another display of why Belker is one of the top three-level scorers in California. She knocked down a small handful of her signature mid-range pull-up jumpers, scored inside, and hit a pair of threes on 9-18 shooting from the field. Belker, a junior, also registered eight rebounds, two steals, and a block.

Maya Stokes had 15 points as well for Windward. The SoCal Division 1 champion Wildcats had previously defeated St. Joseph (Santa Maria), Bakersfield, Rosary Academy, and Orangewood Academy in the State/Regional playoffs.
