MSHS girls without top returner, unable to recover from early struggles in season-opening loss

Good Tuesday morning. A lot to get to this morning for you. We first hit the hardwood and the first basketball game of the season for Valley high schools featured Mount Si High School’s girls, who could not recover from a slow start missing their top returner and fell in their inaugural game last night in the new Mount Si gymnasium in Snoqualmie.

The Wildcats were outscored 20-7 in the opening frame and despite getting their deficit to within four points late, fell 58-50 to the visiting Tahoma Bears from Maple Valley. As noted, the team played without top returner Sela Heide, and we’ll check on her status for you later. In Heide’s place, sophomore Lauren Glazier delivered a strong game, scoring 19 points and adding 13 rebounds, a double-double, to lead the Wildcats. Senior Nitika Kumar, back on the floor after her season-ending knee injury about a year ago in a game against Newport, had 11 points on a solid 5-8 from the floor. Mount Si, though, was held to just 33% shooting in the game and also struggled from the foul line, hitting just seven of 15 free throw attempts.

Mount Si hosts Holy Names tomorrow at 7:15. The game is at Mount Si High School’s gymnasium in Snoqualmie and can be seen live on YouTube.
