Lakes High School Standout Becomes Geoduck

August 6, 2008

Olympia, WA - Alex Saab, a recent Lakes High School (Lakewood, Wash.) graduate, has committed to play basketball at Evergreen for the 2008-09 season.

During her senior year at Lakes as a guard, Saab earned All-Western Cascade Conference Second Team honors and helped her team to a 19-0 regular season record as they advanced to the state tournament where the team placed fourth.

"We are fortunate to have a student-athlete like Alex" says Head Coach Monica Heuer. "She is a mentally tough and a very savy type of player. She plays to win and has the skills that will make us tougher on the perimeter".

Prior to her senior year at Lakes, Saab attended Bethel High School in Tacoma and was a league MVP and First Team All-Conference honoree.

Saab will enter Evergreen this September and plans to pursue a career in criminal justice.
