Shorecrest girls’ State opponent has similar record

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

When the Shorecrest girls’ basketball team opens State 3A tournament play at 7 pm Wednesday, the Scots will face a team with a similar record.

Lakes, Shorecrest’s first-round opponent, comes into the tournament in the Tacoma Dome with an 18-7 record, compared to Shorecrest’s 17-7.

Lakes, from Lakewood south of Tacoma, tied for third in t
he South Puget Sound 3A League with Auburn Riverside behind teams from White River and Bonney Lake, both of whom also qualified for the State tournament.

Lakes defeated Tyee, Sumner and Port Angeles in the West Central/Southwest bi-district tournament before losing to Yelm and defeating Capital of Olympia.

Yelm and Capital are among eight bi-district teams in the State 3A tournament.

Shorecrest finished third behind 4A powers Edmonds-Woodway and Jackson in the Western Conference 4A-3A South Division.

Shorecrest defeated Sedro Woolley, Ferndale and Lynnwood to win the Northwest District 3A tournament.

The winner of the Shorecrest-Lakes game advances to a quarterfinal game at 8:30 p.m. Thursday against the winner of a Wednesday night game between Cleveland of Seattle and White River from Buckley in Pierce County.

The losers of the two first-round games meet in a 2 pm Thursday loser-out game.
