MILL CREEK — Oniye Chibuogwu, a 5-foot-9 sophomore, was virtually unstoppable for the No. 8 Highlanders (20-4), who advanced to the Tacoma Dome for only the second time in school history.

Shorecrest's five seniors, who have played together since grade school, will try to improve on their 1-2 record at state in 2010.

Chibuogwu did anything and everything she pleased on the block, finishing with a career-high 34 points to go with 14 rebounds.


Shorecrest now moves to a State 3A quarterfinal game against Cleveland of Seattle (20-6) Thursday, March 1, at 5:30 p.m. at the Tacoma Dome. The Shorecrest-Cleveland winner will play in a semifinal game at 7:15 p.m. Friday against the winner of another Thursday semifinal game between Kamiakin of Kennewick and Franklin of Seattle. The losers of the two games meet Friday at 12:15 p.m.


In the Saturday, Feb. 25, regional game, the Scots trailed 10-9 after the first quarter and took a 24-22 halftime lead before Timberline tied the game at 37-37 after three quarters, but Shorecrest outscored Timberline 14-10 in the final period.

Through 24 games, Brianne Lasconia leads the Scots with 417 points for an average of 17.4 points per game.
