Molina commits to Washington State

Konawaena incoming senior Chanelle Molina, the reigning Star-Advertiser All-State girls basketball player of the year, has committed to Washington State, according to a release from Konawaena coach Bobbie Awa.

According to the release, Molina had received scholarship offers from more than two dozen Division I programs and narrowed her choices to Washington State, Oregon State, Arizona State and Oregon before committing to the Cougars.

The early signing period for basketball begins Nov. 11.

Molina, a 5-foot-8 guard/forward, repeated as the Fab 15 Player of the Year after leading the Wildcats to the Division I state championship in February. She averaged 17 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and three steals per game.

Washington State has also offered Molina’s sisters, Konawaena junior Celina Jane and sophomore Cherilyn, both Fab 15 players as well. Konawaena graduate Dawnyelle Awa is entering her senior year at Washington State while Lia Galdeira recently announced she will forego her senior year with the Cougars to pursue professional basketball.
