There weren’t a lot of girls basketball games played in the area Monday night, but I wanted to give you some highlights from the ones that were. Normally I do this first thing in the morning, but I had some other commitments, so here goes:
Eastlake 61, Inglemoor 42
Kendra Morrison knocked down 21 points as the 10th-ranked Wolves earned the key KingCo 4A victory. Taylor Peacocke led Inglemoor with 12.
Cleveland 51, Garfield 49
This nonleague games between city schools was originally set for Martin Luther King Day, but some scheduling mixups forced the delay. It wound up being a thriller. Cleveland, ranked No. 4 in Class 3A, was led by Makayla Roper with 14, while Myzhanique Ladd and Cheyenne Wilson added 10 each. It was a nice way for the Eagles to bounce back from last Friday’s loss to top-ranked Holy Names. Garfield, which is dangerous on any night and still a playoff contender in KingCo 3A, saw Renee Dillard Brown (19) and Nyasha Sarju (18) combine for 37 points.
Lynnwood 56, Mountlake Terrace 34
Arsenia Ivanov led a balanced Lynwood attack with 11 points, followed by Meghan Cross and Mokun Fajemisin with 10 each.
Bellevue 53, Interlake 37
A dozen Bellevue players scored, led by Shelby Fanning with 10. Interlake’s Margo Parker tossed in 12.
Cedar Park Christian 52, Forest Ridge 17
Erin Halvorson scored 12 points, Mikaela Raschick chipped in 10 and nine other Cedar Park players scored in the runaway victory.
Northwest Yeshiva 56, Puget Sound Adventist 36
Julia Owen (22) and Milana Davydov (20) combined for 42 points and Ilana Greenberg added 12 for the winners. Puget Sound got 17 from Aulola Kinemoa.
