State basketball roundup: 5 local teams finish with trophies

The Arlington girls, Snohomish girls, Stanwood girls, Murphy girls and Terrace boys claim hardware.

Five Snohomish County high school basketball teams finished with state trophies in their respective Hardwood Classics.

The Arlington girls captured their second consecutive third-place trophy. The Snohomish girls and Archbishop Murphy girls earned fourth-place trophies. And the Stanwood girls and Mountlake Terrace boys took sixth-place trophies.

Below are roundups from Saturday’s Hardwood Classic placing games in Tacoma and Yakima:


Arlington 61, Mead 44

TACOMA — Less than 15 hours after a heartbreaking state semifinal loss, third-seeded Arlington bounced back to roll past top-seeded Mead in the third/fifth-place game at the Tacoma Dome.

It marked the Eagles’ second consecutive third-place state trophy and their fifth top-four state trophy in the past nine state tournaments.

Arlington (21-3) was coming off a tough semifinal loss to No. 2 seed Garfield on Friday night. The Eagles took a six-point lead into the fourth quarter of that game before being outscored 23-3 in the final period by the unbeaten defending state champions.

But Arlington showed no hangover effects on Saturday, racing to a 17-8 first-quarter lead over Mead (23-2) and staying in control the rest of the way.

Jenna Villa led the Eagles with 23 points and eight rebounds, while Keira Marsh provided 15 points and four steals. Hannah Rork added 11 points for Arlington, which finished 27 of 39 from the free-throw line.

The Eagles’ defense came up with 14 steals and held Mead to just 26.1% shooting from the field. The Panthers committed 21 turnovers.

Parker Brown scored a team-high nine points for Mead, which was coming off a one-point state semifinal loss to fourth-seeded Lake Washington on Friday night.

Snohomish 51, Stanwood 43

TACOMA — Addyson Gallatin scored 15 points on five 3-pointers and fifth-seeded Snohomish beat seventh-seeded Stanwood in an all-Wesco fourth/sixth-place game at the Tacoma Dome.

With the victory, the Panthers (18-5) claimed their fourth top-four state trophy in the past six state tournaments. The win also avenged Snohomish’s loss to the Spartans (14-7) in last month’s 3A District 1 Tournament semifinals.

Gallatin sank 5 of 6 shots from 3-point range — including four 3s in the second half — and grabbed seven rebounds. Jada Andresen added 11 points for the Panthers, including three 3-pointers.

Eastern Washington University-bound Ella Gallatin capped her Snohomish career with 10 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Cheyenne Rodgers also scored 10 points for the Panthers.

Stanwood led 15-6 after the first quarter, but Snohomish outscored the Spartans 37-20 over the next two periods.

Vivienne Berrett led Stanwood with 11 points and seven rebounds. Ava Cook and Paige Almanza added eight points apiece for the Spartans.

Stanwood’s sixth-place trophy marks its second-best state finish in program history. The Spartans’ best finish was a fifth-place trophy in 2018.


Archbishop Murphy 66, Hudson’s Bay 59

YAKIMA — Ava Marr scored 22 points to lead fifth-seeded Archbishop Murphy past third-seeded Hudson’s Bay in the fourth/sixth-place game at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

Marr shot 8 of 12 from the field and added three steals for the Wildcats (16-7), who erased a four-point halftime deficit by outscoring the Eagles 42-31 in the second half.

Taylor Campbell added 15 points for Archbishop Murphy, including four 3-pointers. Jojo Chiangpradit provided 12 points and Hannah Humphrey chipped in 10 to give the Wildcats four double-digit scorers.

It was Archbishop Murphy’s first state trophy since a runner-up state finish in 2018.

Mahaila Harrison posted a double-double with 26 points and 10 rebounds for Hudson’s Bay (19-5), which finished with its first-ever state trophy. Aniyah Hampton added 12 points and Paytin Ballard scored 10 for the Eagles.


Garfield 80, Mountlake Terrace 56

TACOMA — Ninth-seeded Mountlake Terrace couldn’t keep up with talent-laden Garfield and fell to the top-seeded Bulldogs in the fourth/sixth-place game at the Tacoma Dome.

Garfield (24-1), which suffered its only loss of the season in an overtime defeat to second-seeded Auburn in Thursday’s state quarterfinals, outscored the Hawks 48-21 over the second and third quarters combined.

Raphiel Justice led the Bulldogs with 15 points. Koren Johnson, a University of Washington-bound four-star recruit, added 14 points, four assists and five steals. Jaylin Stewart, another four-star recruit, had 14 points and eight rebounds for Garfield.

The Bulldogs shot 57.9% from the field, including 66.7% on 2-pointers.

Zaveon Jones scored 19 points and Jeffrey Anyimah added 16 for Mountlake Terrace (20-4), which shot just 35% from the field.

The Hawks finished with their first state trophy since 2013, when they took fourth place in the 3A state tournament.
