Mount Si, Cedarcrest girls’ hoops both win

Hardwood action for you on a Thursday.

We start with Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ basketball team, who opened their season with a nice home win over Interlake.

Despite missing two key players, the Red Wolves used their defense to take command, then the offense helped Cedarcrest cruise to a 54-23 win over the Kingco’s Saints, from Bellevue, at CHS’ gym in Duvall. Kat Townley led the balanced scoring effort with 10 points, followed by both Grace McKenzie and Helena Van Ess with nine points each.

“It’s always nice to start off the new season with a nice win,” Red Wolve coach Brad Knowles told us by email. CHS’ defense shut out Interlake in the opening quarter, then responded to a Saint rally to close the first half by improving the transition game in the second half, and that proved to be fruitful as they finished things off down the stretch. “it was a really good team effort, balanced scoring and hustle all over the court,” Knowles told us.

As noted, the team was missing key players Rose Carlson and Emme Rezoski. The two juniors are battling various ailments according to Knowles – Carlson the chicken pox and Rezoski a rib injury. Both are expected to get well soon and rejoin the team before the holiday break. We send our best wishes to both players for speedy recoveries for both.

Mount Si recovers from slow start, picks up first win
Mount Si’s girls started out a bit slow, trailing visiting Holy Names 14-9 after one quarter, but the team rallied, outscoring the Metro League’s Cougars 14-2 to open the second half and the Wildcats cruised to a 56-37 home win last night over Holy Names in Snoqualmie to even their season record at 1-1.

No Sela Heide again last night for scarlet and grey, but sophomore Lauren Glazier once again stepped up and filled the void well, scoring a game-high 20 to lead Mount Si. Senior Joelle Buck added 10 for the Wildcats, who are off until next Wednesday when they open Kingco 4A play taking on the Redmond Mustangs at Redmond High School. Game time is at 7:15.
