Prep basketball: Lynnwood girls, Arlington boys clinch state berths

Glacier Peak’s boys and girls squads also move on.

The Glacier Peak boys and girls basketball teams are moving on. So are the Arlington boys and Lynnwood girls.

All four squads clinched state regional berths Saturday with district tournament victories.

In 4A Northwest District tournament games at Everett Community College, the Grizzlies boys beat Jackson 54-43 and Glacier Peak’s girls defeated Mariner 75-38.

At Jackson High School, the Eagles knocked off Shorecrest with a 64-50 victory, and the Royals beat Edmonds-Woodway 69-59 in 3A Northwest District tournament contests.


Glacier Peak 75, Mariner 38

Glacier Peak got off to a fast start, outscoring the Marauders 18-7 in the first quarter en route to a 22-point halftime lead.

“We like to put pressure on (our opponents), force their hand to make them uncomfortable. We put a lot of pressure (on Mariner) today, and we had a great team effort,” said Grizzlies coach Brian Hill.

“At the end of the first quarter they had eight points, and Hannah (Hezekiah) had all of them, so we tightened up our defense to stop her. Taliyah (Clark) had nine points and Hannah 13, so we did a good job on their two big studs. We take a lot of pride in our defense, more than our offense.”

Alexyss Newman led Glacier Peak with 16 points.

Lynnwood 69, Edmonds-Woodway 59

The seventh-seeded Royals defeated the Warriors in a district tournament game for the second time in nine days thanks to an 8-0 tie-breaking run in the fourth quarter and efficient free-throw shooting in the final minutes.

“We match up well against them,” said Lynnwood coach Brandon Newby. “We played stress-free basketball today. We knew that if it came down to a free-throw contest at the end that it would definitely go our way, and that’s how it ended. We got off to a big lead, and we knew they could come back because they’re a good shooting team, and they did, and we weathered the storm.”

The Royals made 11 of 12 free-throw attempts in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

Nakia Boston led Lynnwood with 28 points. AJ Martineau and Maddie McMahon scored 13 points each for Edmonds-Woodway.

Stanwood 60, Shorecrest 49

Stanwood won the 3A Northwest District tournament championship with a win over Shorecrst at Jackson High School. Both teams had already clinched state regional berths.


Glacier Peak 54, Jackson 43

Glacier Peak held Jackson leading scorer Christian Liddell scoreless, and the Grizzlies’ defensive effort carried them past the Timberwolves.

“Holding Liddell scoreless is a huge feat. We limited (Ben) Olesen to seven points, so we held those two to seven points when they average 30 points combined,” said Grizzlies coach Brian Hunter. “That was definitely our focus, to take away their strength and force their complementary guys to pick it up a bit.”

Bobby Martin led Glacier Peak with 17 points, and Trey Lawrence scored 15.

Arlington 64, Shorecrest 50

Anthony Whitis scored 23 points to lead fifth-seeded Arlington to a win over Shorecrest.

“We played incredible defense,” Eagles coach Nick Brown said. “Offensively, we moved the ball well. We played with confidence. We’ve been up and down, but that was the good team tonight.”

Philip Pepple scored 18 points for the Scots, who finished the season by dropping four of their last six games.
