Lake Stevens-Arlington post-game wrap

There were many oddities about the Lake Stevens-Arlington girls basketball game Friday night. I mentioned many of them — namely the fact that the teams entered with identical records following seven-game winning streaks — in my game story. But this morsel from Lake Stevens’ 43-37 victory may be the best: the average point total per player…

Realignment news from Wesco

As expected with the new reclassification of schools, the Western Conference will look much different next season. At a league meeting Wednesday, it was decided that there will be a 4A North division, a 4A South and a 3A for 10 sports, according to Wesco president Greg Erickson. These sports are: baseball, basketball (boys and girls),…

Don’t sleep on Jackson’s depth

Jackson’s Big Three, senior guard Erin Feeney (18.6 ppg), junior post Leigh-Ann Haataja (15.3 ppg) and sophomore forward Kristin Stoffel (14.6 ppg), provide roughly 70 percent of the team’s scoring. In fact, the Timberwolves have just three other players averaging more than two points per game. So on the outside, it looks as if even though…

Meadowdale star out against Jackson

Meadowdale senior guard Julia Fjortoft is out of tonight’s huge Wesco South match-up with host Jackson. Fjortoft, the Mavericks’ second-leading scorer at 13.6 points per game, “has a leg injury” according to Meadowdale coach Troy Parker. She missed Meadowdale’s 53-46 loss at No. 8 Shorecrest Wednesday. Parker said he expects her back for Meadowdale’s home game against…

Warriors are undefeated with Woods

As Angela Woods goes, so goes Edmonds-Woodway. The star junior forward had a game-high 21 points to lead E-W to a 59-41 league win over host Kamiak Wednesday. Woods (17.1 ppg) had all but eight of her points in the first and fourth quarters — a symbolic statistic in that she often sets the tone for…

Cascade Conference basketball: 1st month in review

The Archbishop Murphy girls have turned up the throttle on the defensive end in conference play. The Wildcats (5-2, 1-0 Cascade Conference) have led by at least 19 points entering the fourth quarter in their wins. They allowed just 150 points in those games — which is only 23 points less than they yielded in losses…

Home of Hendrickson will get a makeover

A few years back, Mount Vernon’s gymnasium topped our list of the state’s best high school basketball venues. Conjuring up images of the cracker-box facility in the movie ‘Hoosiers’, the Bulldogs’ home floor is legendary. It’s produced 28 state berths and a 3-for-6 showing in state championship games. Current major league pitcher Mark Hendrickson appeared in…

Division leaders square off tonight in Wesco girls basketball

Crossover games are a great way to weigh where teams are at entering the heart of the conference season. But when they involve the co-leaders in their respective divisions, it’s even better. Such is the case with tonight’s showdown at 7:30 between host Jackson (5-1, 4-1 South) and visiting Marysville-Pilchuck (6-1, 5-0 North). It’s a rematch…

Inexperienced Panthers receive huge boost

Without injured star senior Brad Shaw, Snohomish relied on a pair of juniors last year. While the Panthers were eliminated in the Northwest District Tournament after going 12-11 (9-7 in Wesco North), guard Blane Ortiz and forward Jon McGee gained valuable experience shouldering more of the scoring load. Ortiz (8.5 ppg) and McGee (8.0 ppg) wound…
