Mary Ann Santucci, a three-sport standout at Seattle Prep, has made an oral commitment to play basketball at Yale, according to Prep coach Michelle Hall.
Santucci was all-Metro first-team selection in soccer and basketball as a junior and also played tennis for the Panthers. She helped lead the basketball team to the state-championship game, which they narrowly lost to Cleveland. Seatttle Prep placed sixth in 2011 and 2012.
Here’s what coach Hall had to say about her in an e-mail:
“Mary Ann Santucci has been a great student athlete. Our program has competed at the highest level in girls basketball in the state, with her at the helm. She works hard both on and off the court. She will only get better under the coaching leadership of Chris Gobrecht at Yale. The best is yet to come for her.”

I want to share a few thoughts with you on the state girls basketball draws, particularly 4A and 3A.
We’ll have a lot on the tournaments this week in the newspaper, on the web and in the blog. This is just to get the conversation started.
The quarterfinal game I’m most axious to see: No. 1 Mount Rainier vs. No. 5 Inglemoor.
That’s a tough “opener” for both teams. Earlier this season, the Vikings were ranked as high as No. 3. Coach John Augustavo believes his team is playing as well as anyone and had this to say after drawing the top-ranked Rams: “Bring it on. We’re ready.”
With a little encouragement, he admits he is confident about Inglemoor’s chances this week.
“I think we can win this thing,” he said.
The Vikings will have a size advantage with 6-4 Deja’ Strother and four others 6-foot or better. Mount Rainier’s tallest players are Brittany McPhee and Emily Fiso, both 6-0. Of course, McPhee is a crafty player who finds lots of ways to score against players of all sizes. But this will be a challenge.
