GIRLS BASKETBALL

CLASS 3A

Semifinals

No. 1 Mead 56, No. 3 Snohomish 50

TACOMA — The Snohomish High School girls basketball team eventually got rolling and went toe-to-toe with the top team in the state. Unfortunately for Snohomish, that roll started too late, and there wasn’t enough time to catch up.

Snohomish, which trailed No. 1 seed Mead by 15 midway through the third quarter, whittled the lead all the way down to five with enough time remaining to make one final push. But Snohomish could get no closer as it lost the battle of Panthers 56-50 in the Class 3A state semifinals Friday night at the Tacoma Dome.

Tyler Gildersleeve-Stiles had 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists as Snohomish used its inside-out game to get back into it. But one of Mead’s many interchangeable parts found an answer every time Snohomish tried to go on an extended run.

Gracie Wenkheimer came off the bench to score 15 points on five 3-pointers to lead Mead (26-1), which advanced to face No. 6 Garfield in the championship game at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Tacoma Dome. Teryn Gardner added 13 and Reese Frederick scored 10 for Mead.

Kendall Hammer added nine points on three 3s and Sienna Capelli scored eight for Snohomish (19-7), which faces No. 2 Lakeside (Seattle) for third place at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.

Senior guards Khari Deberry and Samara Morrow each scored 16 points, junior guard Kierra Resse added 13 and senior forward Rachel Snow chipped in eight to help lead the Eagles (22-4) into the fourth/sixth-place game against 12th-seeded Everett on Saturday at 9:30 a.m.

Arlington outscored Bonney Lake from beyond the arc (24-12), in points off turnovers (23-10) and points off the bench (16-5).

Bonney Lake (20-7) had a 22-20 halftime lead, but Arlington paced ahead 36-33 at the end of the third quarter, which proved to be just enough of a gap as each scored 17 points in the fourth.

Senior forward Jazmyn Shipp led the Panthers with 24 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Senior center Ava Rice added 10 points and 11 rebounds, and senior guard Evin Elias chipped in nine points.
