Mount Si girls hoops returns to action, blasts Wesco foe, 12-28

A week off from basketball for the holidays didn’t faze Mount Si’s girls’ basketball team, or their top offensive player.

Junior Molly Sellers had her best game of the season thus far, scoring a game-high 23 points to help the Wildcats blast Wesco 4A Cascade of Everett 51-19 last night in the opening game at the second annual Kingco-Wesco Challenge tournament at Juanita High School in Kirkland.

Sellers was a strong 8-14 from the floor (5-9 from behind the three-point line) to pace Mount Si, who rolled out to a 19-3 lead after one quarter, then never looked back. Shelby Peerboom had another solid outing; the senior scored 10 points and collected five rebounds to aid the Wildcats, who won their third straight game. Jordan Riley recorded eight boards to lead Mount Si in that category.

The Wildcats play Glacier Peak from Snohomish tonight in the second day of action at Juanita. This will be the first meeting in girls’ basketball between the two schools, who have had a couple of encounters in boys’ sports in recent years in the state playoffs.
