Shorecrest boys fall short of State with third-place District finish

Sunday, March 7, 2010

The Shorecrest boys’ basketball team fell just short of joining the girls’ team at the State 3A high school basketball tournament starting Wednesday at the Tacoma Dome.

The Shorecrest boys reached a Saturday night playoff game for the Northwest District’s #2 berth in the State tournament before losing to Wesco South rival Meadowdale, 45-33 at Glacier Peak High School.

It marks the second consecutive year that the Scots, who haven’t been to state since 1995, ended their season in a winner-to-state, loser-out contest.

The Scots, who finished the season with a 17-9 record, played Saturday without senior guard Isaiah Clevenger, who had 20 points in Shorecrest's win over Ferndale Thursday. He was benched for a violation of school policy.

Saturday Score by Quarters:

Shorecrest 5 13 7 8 — 33

Meadowdale 11 14 7 13 — 45

Shorecrest Scoring —T. McCoy 2, Diel 3, Hake 6, Bateman 6, B. McCoy 0, Brown 9, Chibuogwu 7.

The Shorecrest girls, meanwhile, will head to State as the District’s #1 team, having beaten Lynnwood Thursday night. Lynnwood came back Saturday to defeat Glacier Peak for second place.
Shorecrest girls take a 17-7 record into the State 3A tournament. 

Glacier Peak and Meadowdale will represent the District in the boys’ tournament. Wesco South teams finished 1-2-3 in both the boys’ a girls’ district tournaments, shutting out teams from the Wesco North and the Northwest League.
