I want to start the Thursday girls basketball highlights with a special mention of Auburn Mountainview senior Cait Carr.
Carr, the daughter of coach Chris Carr, received recognition before Thursday’s game against Decatur as the school’s first player to score 1,000 career points. She then went out and poured in a season-high 29 points to lead the Lions, ranked No. 10 in 3A, to a 59-15 victory. Her career total now sits at 1,213 points.
And now onto the other Thursday girls games reported to The Times:

The Eages put three in double figures — Mandie Hill (11), Quincey Gibson (10) and Monica Landdeck (10).
Jackson 53, Edmonds-Woodway 38
Sierra Anderson and Kristin Stoffel led the Timberwolves, ranked No. 6 in 4A, with 11 points each. E-W got 12 from Madeline Kasper and 11 from Natalie Kasper.

Juanita 48, Interlake 26
