Friday’s prep results

King’s boys advance in 1A state tournament; Glacier Peak girls lose.

Here are box scores and recaps from Friday’s action from the regional round of state basketball:

GIRLS BASKETBAL

Lewis and Clark 55, Glacier Peak 36

SPOKANE — Glacier Peak’s offense sputtered as the Grizzlies were held to their second-lowest scoring output of the season in a 55-36 loss to Lewis and Clark in a loser-out 4A state regional game Friday.

Neither team had rhythm on offense early, combining for just 15 points in the first quarter. Glacier Peak (16-8) missed out on several good looks at the basket early, according to coach Brian Hill.

“We just kind of got into our own heads at that point,” Hill said. “We started losing our confidence offensively.”

The Grizzlies closed the second quarter on an 8-3 run to cut thier 13-point deficit to eight at the half, but couldn’t manage a comeback after the break.

Glacier Peak struggled to stop Lewis and Clark’s forward Anna Reeves. The 6-foot-3 junior established her presence in the post early on her way to a game-high 16 points.

“We knew from tape what they wanted to do offensively,” Hill said. “They executed their game plan well.”

Alexyss Newman led the Grizzlies with 13 points, and Abbie Juozapaitis added 10.

Glacier Peak exceeded the expectation of many this season after graduating many key players from its squad that finished second in the 4A state tournament just a season ago.

“Everybody kind of thought we were gonna be maybe okay, but I think all season long we improved every game,” Hill said. “… I’m really proud of our girls. They tried to be who they are. They didn’t try and be who we were last year.”

BOYS BASKETBALL

King’s 57, Lakeside (9 Mile Falls) 35

MEDICAL LAKE — King’s raced out to a 12-point advantage at the end of the first quarter and never looked back as the Knights cruised to a 57-35 victory over Lakeside (9-Mile Falls) in a loser-out 1A regional playoff game on Friday.

Elyon Zevenbergen paced King’s (16-11) with a game-high 20 points, Taylor Schoenfeld added 11 and the Knights made the best of their opportunities at the charity stripe, sinking 12 of 14 free-throw attempts.

King’s has won a regional playoff matchup in six consecutive seasons and will now advance to the Yakima SunDome to play the loser of Saturday’s regional matchup between Lynden Christian and Newport Wednesday at 2 p.m.

King’s coach Rick Skeen did not return a call from the Herald seeking comment.
