Kamiakin high school from Kennewick has been on quite an athletic tear as of late. What have they actually done you may ask? Well last year the powerhouse Braves finished 2nd
to mighty Bellevue in The baseball crew rolled to the state 3A semi-finals before ending
up 4th at state. This fall the Kamiakin grid-iron greats lost in the state semi-finals again to Bellevue in a hard fought battle 21-10.
This winter the Braves are up to their old tricks again. The roudballers are cruising along at 16-1, and are ranked 2nd in the state 3A polls. The Braves are led by their Teepee towers,
Justin Pedley and Zach En’Wezoh.
Pedley is a 6’6″ senior 3 year starter for Kamiakin, while En’Wezoh is a 6’7″ senior 2 year starter for the high rolling Braves.
Pedley was a 2nd team all-columbia basin big nine selection following both his sophomore and junior seasons. The multi-talented glass eater was an all-tournament choice at the
3A state tourney last season. This year he has upped his game big time. He is currently averaging 18.2 points and 10 boards a game. He is the #2 scorer in the league and one of the
Tri-Cities area’s top guns.
En’Wezoh is a so called late bloomer, really filling out over the last couple years. The jumping jack has really blossomed this season into a giant force in the middle for Kamiakin.
The high riser is currently averaging 13.7 points and 8 rebounds a contest. En’Wezo
h has already made a verbal commitment to play in the Ivy league next season for Columbia
Pedley is also a beast in the classroom and is his recruiting is starting to heat up as well.
With these two twin towers in the middle, look for the Kamiakin High School Braves to have another gigantic run at the state 3A hoop title.
