Ho! Ho! Ho! Here we go with some highlights from the high-school girls basketball games reported to The Times Thursday. I have next week off, so I wish you all Happy Holidays and I’ll pick up the highlights again the first week of January (I believe Mason will blog the girls as well as the boys next week, but am not sure).
Head-Royce Holiday Classic
Lakes 72, Head-Royce (Oakland, Calif.) 33
No details reported, but I thought I’d note the score, since we have Lakes of Tacoma ranked No. 8 in Class 3A.
Nike Tournament of Champions
Eastlake 46, ThunderRidge (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) 36
A nice tournament by the Wolves, who went 3-1 in Arizona. Kendra Morrison and Marijke Vandershaaf set the pace in this one with 11 points each.
