TACOMA — Sixteenth-seeded Shorecrest used a 25-6 run in the third quarter to pull away and stunned No. 8 Rainier Beach in a 3A state tournament loser-out game late Wednesday night, March 1, 2023 at the Tacoma Dome.

Alan Bruns, Shorecrest Athletics Director reported:

"Last night at the Tacoma Dome Shorecrest put together a masterful all-around performance en route to a convincing 69-44 victory over Rainier Beach. The Scots took a 7 point lead into the half and then blew open the game in the second half with numerous forced turnovers and terrific outside shooting. Parker Baumann led the way with 20 points and 15 rebounds, while Keaine Silimon  poured in 15 points.  The Shorecrest students turned out in force and at the end of the game were chanting “We want Garfield!”
