I expected Wednesday’s girls basketball game between No. 3 Lake Stevens and No. 5 Stanwood to be a good one, and I was right.
The Spartans, who suffered their only loss of the season to Lake Stevens back on Dec. 9, 61-52, returned the favor and knocked off the previously unbeaten Vikings, 60-56. We had Doug Drowley cover the game for us, and you can read his story here.
