Some high-school girls basketball highlights from Wednesday

Well, that didn’t take long.

Two ranked girls basketball teams have already gone down, although one of them fell to another ranked team.

I mentioned in my blog Monday that I thought Lakeside would be one of the Metro teams to watch, and sure enough the Lions beat No. 9 Seattle Prep Wednesday, 41-35, outscoring the Panthers 26-13 in the middle two quarters.

And Juanita (No. 5 in 3A) beat Eastlake (No. 8 in 4A), 63-58.

I know one of Seattle Prep’s top players is out for a bit with an injury, but that doesn’t take away from Lakeside’s victory, which was keyed by Sydney Koh with 15 points.

Juanita, which trailed 32-29 at halftime, got double-digit scoring from Molly Grager (16), Mikayla Jones (13) and Winnie Levitt (11). Eastlake was led by Kendra Morrison with 12.

And here are some highlights from other high-school girls basketball games played Wednesday, as reported to The Times:

Garfield 73, Chief Sealth 30

What a comeback for senior guard Shaunice Robinson, who missed all of last season with a knee injury. She poured in 29 points and added 10 steals and four assists. Teammate Nyasha Sarju had a big night, too, with 20 points. That duo gives the Bulldogs a chance to make some noise this season. For Sealth, Mariah Rubio-Rebaca had 12 points.

Inglemoor 71, Lynnwood 53

The Vikings used a three-pronged attack by Kelly Conroy (18 points), Shay Fuller (16) and Taylor Peacocke (15). Lynnwood was led by Jasmine Edwards with 16.

Bellevue 37, Slykine 34

The Wolverines got nine points apiece from Carly Best, Erin McGowin and Holly Worendorf. For Skyline Megan Wiedeman scored 17 and Haley Smith 10.

Jefferson 54, Graham-Kapowsin 41

Jada Piper tossed in 20 points and get help from Christina Kullberg (11) and Lexi Goranson (10). G-K’s Hanna Kennach hit for 11.
