BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Trey Drechsel,  the Class 1A State Player of the Year as a senior at Cedar Park Christian High School, has accepted an offer of admission from Western Washington University and will play basketball for the Vikings. Making that announcement Wednesday was WWU men’s basketball coach Tony Dominguez.
During the 2013-14 school year, Drechsel was named Washington State Coaches Association Class 1A State Player of the Year, honorable mention Associated Press all-State and Nisqually League Player of the Year. He also played in the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association All-State game, finishing with a triple-double of 24 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
A 6-foot-5 guard, Drechsel was a first-team state all-tournament pick, helping the Eagles place fourth at state after winning a second straight league title. He averaged 21.2 points and 8.1 rebounds during the season, being named team MVP for the second straight year and inspirational award winner.
As a junior, Drechsel was a first-team AP all-State pick and league POY, averaging 14.8 points on a 22-3 team that placed third in the school’s first state appearance.
Drechsel, who was a second-team all-league pick as a sophomore, started and lettered four years. He also lettered two years in baseball, earning Emerald City all-league honors as a freshman and sophomore.
WWU, which graduated three starters, finished 20-8 last year, just missing out on a third straight NCAA II West Regional berth. The Vikings lost by three points in the title game of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Tournament and placed second (13-5) in the GNAC regular-season standings.
