Saturday afternoon at Jackson HS, the depleted Shorewood girls were clobbered by Snohomish, 67-25. The T-Birds led 10-9 after the first quarter but it was all Panthers from that point on. Once again, junior Katie Taylor's all-out effort defied belief. She led her team with seven points.

"I'm couldn't be more proud of how the girls kept competing even though the odds kept stacking up against us," said SW Coach Mark Haner after the game, referring to losing Kaitlyn Amundsen, Jalyn Hizey, and Taryn Shelley to season-ending injuries and illness.

Shorewood ended their season with a 17-5 record.

The Shorecrest girls suffered a similar fate at the hands of the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors, 43-35. The Scots (13-10) trailed by 8 at the half, cut that lead in half going into the final quarter, but the young and unselfish Warriors pulled away down the stretch.

Scots senior Jazlyn Owens led her team with 12 points, while rugged senior Sheridan Stevenson fittingly fouled out in her final game. Both were instrumental last year when the Scots won the school's first basketball state championship.
