Mount Si boys to compete for Kingco crown, plus news from the hardwood and the track on this Sunday

Good Sunday morning.

Mount Si High School’s boys’ basketball team will be competing for the Kingco 4A championship. The Wildcats held off Skyline last night 54-47 in a tournament semifinal game at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland to advance to the league title game on Thursday night, also at LWHS.

Jabe Mullins led Mount Si with 13 points while Bijon Sidhu added 10. The Wildcats recovered from an early slow start to take the halftime lead, then took care of business the rest of the way despite the Spartans’ best efforts.

Mount Si will meet Bothell for the league title and trip to regionals on Thursday night at 8:00 p.m. Preview and pick then here at the Journal.

Also this morning from the hardwood, some news from the college ladies’ front:
