Some high-school girls basketball highlights from Tuesday

There was one notable upset in Tuesday’s round of high-school girls basketball games, so I’ll get right to it, along with highlights from other contests reported to The Times:

Lakes 53, Auburn Mountainview 42

The Lancers handed the Lions their first in-state defeat after losing by 20 when the two teams first played at Mountainview, which is ranked No. 4 in Class 4A. Coach Chris Carr said his team was sluggish after a six-day layoff and made 21 unforched turnovers in the first half alone. But he also gave credit to coach Dave McEachern for having his team ready. McEachern recently took over for Daniel Guy as head coach.

Jamesha Holland keyed the upset with 19 points and Tyanna Barton added 13. For Mountainview, Cait Carr scored 19 and Aalia Braboy 11. The Lions had won five in a row since going 1-3 at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Arizona.

Bonney Lake 51, Decatur 41

Mekenzie Voellger put together 20 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks to lead the way. Naomi Pounds added 11 points and Gabriela Ruiz 10. For Decatur, A’yesia Rogers finished with 18 and Acacia Hall had 14.

Enumclaw 52, Peninsula 32

Calli Remitz dropped in 14 and Danielle Saltarelli added 10 for the Hornets.

Foster 60, Kennedy Catholic 54

The Bulldogs made it a Seamount-season sweep of the Lancers, and it seems highly unlikely that if has ever happened before. Sahara Hill poured in 23 points and got help from Bianca Benivadies (14). Kennedy finished with three players in double figures — Myah Williams (20), Jenna Bojorguez (14) and Diondre Bourgette (12).

Franklin Pierce 51, Steilacoom 40
