From our news partner, The Seattle Times:
LYNNWOOD — Brianne Lasconia tried to stay focused.
All she could think about was facing Glacier Peak in the Class 3A Northwest District title game Saturday night for the second year in a row and how Shorecrest was trying to sweep the Grizzlies this season.
Facing the same situation last year, Shorecrest fell short.
Lasconia and the Scots made this experience more memorable.
Lasconia scored 23 points, including 10 in the pivotal fourth quarter, as Shorecrest defeated Glacier Peak, 63-51.
The victory left the No. 10-ranked Scots cutting down the nets at Lynnwood and preparing for a trip to the 3A regionals.
Shorecrest advances to the regional round of State 3A girls’ basketball play as Northwest District champion after defeating Glacier Peak Saturday.
Shorecrest takes a 19-4 season record into its regional game Saturday, Feb. 25, at 8 p.m. at Jackson High School in Mill Creek against the No. 5 team from the West Central/Southwest bi-district tournament.
Glacier Peak plays for the No. 2 District spot Tuesday against Lynnwood, which defeated Ferndale, 70-54 Saturday.
In Shorecrest’s 63-51 victory over Glacier Peak, the Scots led by one point at halftime and trailed by one point after three quarters before outscoring the Grizzlies 23-10 in the final period.
