Friday, March 2, 2012

From our news partner, The Seattle Times
Shorecrest’s seniors simply weren’t ready to be done. 
“We talked about it again last night,” Shorecrest girls basketball coach Dori Monson said. “These seniors didn’t want their season to end today.” 
The Highlanders made sure it wouldn’t. Janie Uppinghouse made five 3-pointers a day after she missed every shot she took, and Shorecrest advanced to the 3A state fourth/sixth place game with a 59-48 victory over Kamiakin (23-3) on Friday at the Tacoma Dome. 
Another of the Highlanders’ five seniors, Brianne Lasconia, scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Shorecrest (21-5) earned the school’s first hardware in girls’ basketball with the win.

Shorecrest takes its 21-5 season record into a Saturday game for fourth place in the State 3A tournament against Seattle Prep, which defeated Lakeside of Seattle, 36-32 Friday.

In Shorecrest’s 59-48 victory over Kamiakin Friday, the Scots led 14-11 after the first quarter, 33-24 at halftime and 48-38 after three quarters before extending the lead in the final period.
