First game of Marr era for Mount Si girls’ hoops ends in loss to Falcons

The first game of the Jason Marr era for Mount Si High School’s girls’ basketball team became a big challenge thanks to the cancellation of last Friday’s home opener against Newport. Last night, they finally got their season started, but it was against the Kingco favorites from Woodinville, and it was on their home floor up at Woodinville High School.

Mount Si gave it their best efforts, but could not recover from a slow start and fell to the Falcons. Woodinville outscored the Wildcats 21-6 in the opening frame and cruised from there, handing Mount Si the 66-37 loss. Nitika Kumar and Sela Heide each had nine points to pace the Wildcats, while freshman Mia Hughes led all scorers for Woodinville, scoring 15 points on a solid 6-11 from the floor. Mount Si was held to just 28% shooting on the evening and was out-rebounded 33-24 by the Falcons.

The Wildcats are slated to host Inglemoor in their home opener Friday at 6:30 at Mount Si High School.
