Ladies hardwood news: Mount Si’s program going through some changes, Cedarcrest scores blowout win, and scores from the colleges... Posted on by Rhett Workman
The winds of change are blowing through the Mount Si High School girls’ basketball program. Three new players have joined the varsity after being called up from the MSHS junior varsity squad, with two making their varsity debuts in last night’s contest against Eastlake, and there’s even a new member of the Wildcat coaching staff. But those winds of change have yet to reach the win-loss column, if last night’s result was any indication.
Three Wolves finished scoring in double-figures, led by a game-high 23 points from senior Sarah Priestley, as Eastlake broke out to a 5-0 lead before Mount Si even attempted a shot in the first quarter and cruised to a 66-37 win. “That’s a good squad,” said Wildcat coach Taylor Bass. “They’re a team that has three really good players, three players who have put in a lot of work.” And all three of them delivered. Sophomore Gina Marxen scored 16 points to pace the Wolves, while fellow sophomore Cameron Edward was busy in the first half for Eastlake and finished with eight points. A third soph, Stacie Keck, scored 11 to pace the Wolves. The approach for Mount Si was simple – shut down Edward, Priestley and Marxen.
