Everett girls basketball earns milestone win

The Everett girls basketball team claimed its first postseason win since 2013 with a 48-34 victory over Stanwood in a 3A Northwest District Tournament play-in game last Wednesday.

Under the direction of first-year head coach and 1998 Everett graduate Jeannie Thompson, the Seagulls (12-10) are in the midst of their first winning season since 2013-14.

After falling to top-seeded Shorecrest in Friday’s district quarterfinals, No. 8 seed Everett faces No. 5 seed Meadowdale in a loser-out game Tuesday. The Seagulls need to win three consecutive district elimination games to earn their first state regional berth since 2013.
