The Shorecrest Girls basketball team drubbed Lynnwood by a 58-36 count in the Northwest One District 3A semi-finals Tuesday night at Mountlake Terrace.

They will face Stanwood this Saturday at 5pm up at Jackson HS for the District Championship. Both teams have qualified for next weekend’s State Tournament regional round.

The Scots defeated the Spartans 55-51 in the Stanwood gym on February 5.

In the Lynnwood game, the Scots (16-6 this season) sputtered some at the beginning, but soon found their legs thanks to the outside shooting of sophomore Amanda Lee, whose ‘three-atrics’ included five baskets from behind the 3-point line. And senior captain Julia Strand delivered her usual brilliant performance, scoring 18, with the majority coming from quick cuts under the basket along with one 3-pointer.

Strand, the leading scorer on the SC State Championship team from two years ago, was lost last year to a knee injury suffered in the second game of the season. This year’s team is young, with Strand and Shelby Gresch the only seniors.

“Saturday will be the biggest stage this team has seen, but I think we’ll be ready,” said Strand.
