Athletes of the Week for 1-3, and our first of 2018…..

Happy New Year. Time to start 2018 with a round of Athletes of the Week as we hit the hardwood for both of the girls’ selections this week.

MOUNT SI – The Wildcats on Saturday did something not seen in years and that is completely shut down an opponent defensively. Hence, the entire Mount Si girls’ basketball team gets our nod this week. They finished third in the Surf N’Slam tournament, posting a 48-15 win over Watsonville, CA, themselves pretty decent at 8-4 on the season. But what was remarkable was that the 15 points Mount Si’s defense allowed in the contest was the fewest points allowed by the Wildcats in a game since the 2009-10 season, the last for former longtime coach Dirk Hansen before he left Mount Si to become an athletic director at other schools around Washington. A tremendous defensive effort, and one which we recognize here this morning in the segment.

Mount Si hosts Skyline on Wednesday in its return to league play, now at 4-4 on the season and looking to use their performance in San Diego as a spark to a playoff return.

CEDARCREST – Senior Haley Hill gets our nod this week on the strength of a 14 point, six rebound effort this past Wednesday for the Red Wolves in their 44-40 loss at home in Duvall in Arlington. Hill is averaging around nine points a game for the Red Wolves, 8-3 and hosting Chief Sealth tomorrow as it gets ready to return to Cascade Conference play later this week.
