CAREY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Kylie Wood had tied three state records on Friday, when the 1A DII state tournament came to a close.

The Carey senior finished with 86 points, tying the tournament record set by Bella Murekatete of Genesis Prep in 2018. Because both of these ladies played three games apiece, Wood also tied her record of 28.7 points per game.

She was 30/43 from the free-throw line, tying the amount of made free throws in game, a record she now shares with Lillian Rhea of Lakeside from 2016.

The Panthers finished in third place, after a 48-40 win over Rockland, a rematch of the 2020 state championship.
