Meadowdale star out against Jackson

Meadowdale senior guard Julia Fjortoft is out of tonight’s huge Wesco South match-up with host Jackson.

Fjortoft, the Mavericks’ second-leading scorer at 13.6 points per game, “has a leg injury” according to Meadowdale coach Troy Parker. She missed Meadowdale’s 53-46 loss at No. 8 Shorecrest Wednesday.

Parker said he expects her back for Meadowdale’s home game against Lynnwood Tuesday.

Ironically, Fjortoft’s older sister Hannah missed the game here last year with a leg injury when the Mavericks came in ranked fourth. Meadowdale, which placed sixth at state last year, never led in losing 60-42.

“It must be in the name,” dead-panned Parker during Meadowdale’s warm-ups.

Meadowdale (5-3, 4-2) is ranked 10th in 3A while the Timberwolves (7-1, 5-1) are 10th in 4A.
