The Shorecrest varsity girl’s basketball team (1-0) defeated the Jackson Timberwolves (0-1) in their season opener on Tuesday night, December 3, 2019, 54-29.

Third year coach Carlos Humphrey returns with a balanced and experienced team, featuring four returning seniors in Amanda Lee, Taylor Svendsen, Sydney VanNess, and Maura Weaver, along with three juniors, and three sophomores.

Returning junior, Kiana Lino, opened the game with a tip to Lee, who passed to VanNess for a layup and the first points of the season. Lee would end the game with six assists and 10 points.

Shorecrest opened the game with a tight press defense, and ended the first quarter 12-6, led by sophomore Leila Hosn’s electric six first quarter points.

Shorecrest struggled in the second quarter, getting outscored 14-10, as Jackson staged a bit of a comeback to end the half down 22-20. But they came back strong in the second half, shutting out Jackson for the first 11 minutes of the half.

The fourth quarter started with a fake and a layup by Weaver that excited the crowd and ended with three straight layups by Hosn, who ended the game as she started it.

Hosn ended the game with 16 points, and VanNess and Lino each pitched in 10 and 9, respectively.

The Shorecrest JV team also won 45-18, and their C team, playing an away game at Mountlake Terrace, won 51-20.

Shorecrest takes on Juanita at Shorecrest High School Wednesday night at 7:15pm.
