Division leaders square off tonight in Wesco girls basketball

Crossover games are a great way to weigh where teams are at entering the heart of the conference season. But when they involve the co-leaders in their respective divisions, it’s even better.

Such is the case with tonight’s showdown at 7:30 between host Jackson (5-1, 4-1 South) and visiting Marysville-Pilchuck (6-1, 5-0 North). It’s a rematch of Jackson’s win in a loser-out Northwest District tournament game last year.

The Tomahawks, seeking their first state berth since 1997, haven’t lost since a 5-point setback at Squalicum in their season opener. They rely mainly on five players, each averaging between eight and 12 points: juniors Andi Adams, Dacia Heckendorf, and Morgan Martinis along with sophomores Emily Enberg and Becca Lentz.

The only senior is tied for seventh in scoring, so this team will be a major force in upcoming campaigns as M-P searches for its first-ever state tournament win too.

Conversely, the Tacoma Dome has been a second home for the Timberwolves in recent years. Jackson has made four straight appearances, including an eighth-place finish when Kristi Kingma (UW) was a junior in 2007.
