Mount Si boys’ basketball season ends in heartbreaking loss, plus the winter sports season wrapup for local high schools on this Sunday…..

Good Sunday morning. Busy Sunday, and we first start on the hardwood.

Mount Si High School’s boys’ basketball season came to an end in heartbreak last night, as they mounted a late comeback in their game against Skyline only to fall just short.

The Spartans held off the Wildcats 54-53 in the winner-to-state loser-out Kingco 4A playoff clash at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland, ending Mount Si’s season at 13-11. Jabe Mullins scored 26 for the Wildcats and Bijon Sidhu added 14 pacing scarlet and gray, who was down 40-31 after three quarters but outscored Skyline 22-14 in the final frame, but could not finish things out in the end.

Jack Westover added eight points in his final game as a Mount Si player; he is a senior this season.

Also this morning:
