Senior Helping Bring Team To Fourth Straight State Title

SPOKANE — Northwest Christian basketball player Chase Ramey, put up big numbers during his freshman year at the state tournament, and now in his senior year, he is still shining both on and off the court.

Chase is a senior point guard who has been helping the Crusaders win state titles for the past four years. He was even able to put up 23 points as a freshman in the state title game.

He has been so successful, that he has become the cover boy for the State B Tournament.

“He also made page three, so page one and three, we thought that was pretty good for anybody,” Crusaders coach Ray Ricks said. 

The success Chase has had on the hard wood is rivaled by nobody. Chase was the leading scorer on a Crusaders team that won its fourth straight state title, and its something, he says, was beyond even his wildest dreams.

“I’ve always dreamed and always hoped of getting a state championship or state championships, but we’ve been very fortunate, but I just thank God for the opportunity to play for the school and with teammates around me that have been able to work together and pull off the success,” Chase said.  

Chase is also a success in the classroom, where he’s got a 3.7 grade point average. He attacks his school work the same way he attacks a defender on the court full.

“Working hard in sports and working hard in school goes hand in hand. I think work ethic in the classroom is just as important as on the basketball court,” Chase said.

While chase has played his last game for the Crusaders, he is not leaving the cupboard bare. His brother still has two years left, which is plenty of time to make a run for another cover.
