The Shorecrest girls’ basketball team clinched a berth in the Northwest District 3A tournament with home victories over Glacier Peak Wednesday and Oak Harbor Friday.

The two victories gave the Scots a 7-4 Western Conference 3A record (10-8 overall) going into a Wednesday, Jan. 30, game at Mountlake Terrace (4-7 Wesco 3A, 7-11). Shorecrest goes into the Mountlake Terrace game with a lock on fourth place in the Wesco 3A South and one of the top seven Wesco 3A records. Ferndale of the Northwest 3A/2A/1A Conference gets a berth in the eight-team tournament with the best record among Northwest District 3A teams.
