Coming off the big regional win over top-ranked Prairie, last year’s state champion, the Wolverines struggled for more than three quarters against gritty Glacier Peak.
It was 28-28 when Bellevue finally took control with a 16-3 run. Junior point guard Erin McGowen scored all seven of her points — including a long three-pointer — during that span. Freshmen Tatiana Streun and Shelby Cansler also contributed big baskets.
Streun recorded a double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Cansler, the KingCo 3A/2A MVP, had an off shooting day (four-for-13) and finished with just eight points, all in the second half. It was sophomore Mandy Steward with a team-high 14 points.
Nicole Fausey led the Grizzlies with 10 points. They made just two-of-15 three-pointers and shot a miserable 22.2 percent overall for the game.
