Just before receiving a police escort out of Sunnyside yesterday afternoon for the trek to the Tacoma Dome, the Sunnyside High School girls basketball team is all smiles. The Lady Grizzlies open 3A State tournament play tonight (Thursday) at 5:30 p.m. against the Bellevue Wolverines. The last time an SHS girls hoop team qualified for State was in 2002. The 2013-14 Lady Grizzly team members include (front L-R) Tiana Perez, Emilee Maldonado, Jordan Rodriguez and Mireya Herrera; (back L-R) Summer Hazzard, Jessica Mendoza, Vanessa Alvarez, Selena Rubalcava, Natalia Bazan, Jasmine Lua, Aubrey Isquierdo and Jazel Trevino.
