The annual Stinky Sneaker rivalry event between Central Valley and University high schools was held Jan. 15 at Spokane's Veterans Memorial Arena. For the fourth consecutive year, Central Valley students won the spirit competition, maintaining possession of the coveted Stinky Sneaker. CV went with a "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" theme for a series of performances and cheers that led to the title. The verbiage on all those blue shirts? "Shoempa Loompa."
The Central Valley girls basketball team avenged a blowout loss from earlier in the season with a 41-38 victory in the early game. And yes, the big game merited a uniform change (above photo) for CV.
Season leading scorers Mariah Cunningham (above) and Madison Hovren (below) helped the Bears to victory.
