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.
