On the ladies’ hardwood to start the first weekend of the New Year…..

Boys’ hardwood action on deck soon, but we have a lot of ladies’ action to kick things off on this Saturday morning.

Mount Si High School’s girls basketball team suffered a heartbreaking loss last night, falling 49-48 to the Issaquah Eagles at Issaquah High School.

Joelle Buck led Mount Si with 13 points as the Wildcats dropped to 5-5 on the season with the loss. It was a close game throughout, with Issaquah holding a one-point lead, 24-23, at halftime.

Mount Si is at Newport on Wednesday next week.

CHS stifles struggling Sultan: The Red Wolve ladies, despite not playing their normal game plan, made short work of Sultan last night on the Turks’ floor at Sultan High School, 51-13. “We knew from their game on Wednesday against Murphy (a 70-6, yes, 70-6, result in favor of ATM) that Sultan is a young team that is having a tough time this season. We didn’t press at all and at halftime we led 36-4. In the second half, we played a rotation of our non-starters and it was good for them to get a lot of minutes,” said coach Brad Knowles by email. Haley Hill, Maya Catherman and Cassidy Sweney all had eight points each to lead the balanced Red Wolve efforts.

“It was good to rest our starters, not risk injury and have the whole team ready for a big week ahead,” Knowles said. CHS is at King’s Tuesday and hosts Archbishop Murphy next Friday, two big games that will go a long way toward deciding the postseason direction for this Red Wolves group.

CHS alum leads way for Northwest ladies in rout: A game-high 17 points from Duvall’s Kalee Fowler led Northwest U.’s women to a 67-46 blasting of visiting College of Idaho last night in a Cascade Collegiate Conference (NAIA) game in Kirkland. Fowler, a senior and 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, was a solid 6-11 from the floor – with three three-pointers, and also collected six rebounds, three steals and an assist for the Eagles, who moved to 6-10 on the season with the win.

Bruins smack Loggers’ ladies: GFU dominated in last night’s test with visiting Puget Sound, handing the Loggers an 82-57 blowout loss dropping UPS to 6-6 on the season. Snoqualmie junior Elizabeth Prewitt, a 2015 Mount Si HS alum, was 3-8 from the floor and finished with 10 points to pace the Loggers, who are at Willamette this afternoon for a 4:00 tip you can see live on NWC Digital, at right in our news links or on Roku, AppleTV and other set-top boxes.

Skagit falls again: Thursday, Skagit Valley’s ladies fell at home in Mount Vernon in a non-conference battle to visiting Highline CC, 78-60. Freshman Mieke Van Ess, from Duvall and a 2017 CHS’er, had five boards in a limited 13 minutes of action for the Cardinals, who played against Northwest Indian College last night up in Bellingham; we have no report for you on that result at this time.
