No. 4 Glacier Peak 65, No. 3 Gonzaga Prep 58 (OT)

TACOMA — Jo Lee flipped the switch, and Glacier Peak’s grand shot maker carried the Grizzlies to another dramatic comeback in the dome.

Lee drained three straight 3-pointers as Glacier Peak erased a nine-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation, then stuck two more at the start of overtime as the cardiac Grizzlies defeated the Gonzaga Prep Bullpups in the Class 4A state quarterfinals Thursday night at the Tacoma Dome.

It was Glacier Peak’s second stunning comeback in two nights, as the Grizzlies erased a 20-point deficit against Camas in the round of 12 to reach Thursday’s game. The fourth-seeded Grizzlies (24-3) advanced to face No. 7 Richland in the semifinals at 9 p.m. Friday at the Tacoma Dome.

Lee led four Glacier Peak scorers in double digits with 22. Reed Nagel scored 16, Isaiah Cuellar added 13 points, including the driving layup that ultimately forced overtime, and Zachary Albright battled down low with 11 points and nine rebounds.

Henry Sandberg scored 21 points and Nate Christy had 19 points and 11 boards for fourth-seeded Gonzaga Prep (20-6), which faces No. 8 Kentwood in a loser-out consolation at 2 p.m. Friday at the Tacoma Dome.

No. 3 Snohomish 45, No. 5 Arlington 25

TACOMA — Ken Roberts did not want the rubber match between the Snohomish and Arlington high school girls basketball teams to come down to the last second yet again. Therefore, the Snohomish coach installed a defensive plan designed to take away Arlington’s best player, and it couldn’t have been executed any better.

Snohomish’s defense did a number on Arlington star point guard Samara Morrow, and the Panthers rolled into the Class 3A state semifinals with a lopsided victory over the Eagles on Thursday afternoon at the Tacoma Dome.

Snohomish and Arlington played two thrillers earlier this season, each team winning once on a last-second shot. But there was no drama in this one. Snohomish’s diamond-and-one defense frustrated Morrow and the Eagles, limiting Arlington to 5-for-46 from the field as every shot was contested. The Eagles’ 25 points were a season low by 10 and 34 below their season average.

Tyler Gildersleeve-Stiles had 12 points and eight rebounds and Hammer scored 11 for third-seeded Snohomish (19-6), which advanced to face No. 1 Mead in the semifinals at 7:15 p.m. Friday at the Tacoma Dome.

Morrow, Katie Snow and Khari Deberry scored six apiece for fifth-seeded Arlington (21-4), which dropped into the consolation bracket. The Eagles face No. 7 Bonney Lake at 12:15 p.m Friday at the Tacoma Dome in a loser-out contest.

No. 6 Garfield 54, No. 12 Everett 43

TACOMA — The 12th-seeded Everett girls basketball team couldn’t muster enough to get past sixth-seeded Garfield on Thursday in the Class 3A Hardwood Classic quarterfinals, falling 54-43.

After downing Auburn on Wednesday, the Seagulls looked to make another statement in their historic run with a spot in the semifinals on the line. But overpowering the defending 3A champions was no easy task.

The Seagulls couldn’t slow down Bulldogs star senior Katie Fiso, who showcased her all-around abilities with a game-high 30 points, six rebounds and two assists.

Alana Washington led Everett (18-9) with 18 points and six rebounds, Lanie Thompson had eight points and Emily Barton added seven.

Garfield junior Sarah Lessing was a force in the paint and registered 15 points and seven rebounds.

Everett, which was making its first quarterfinal appearance in 41 years, faces eighth-seeded North Thurston in a consolation loser-out game Friday at 2 p.m. Garfield (19-3) plays second-seeded Lakeside in the semifinals Friday at 9 p.m.

No. 5 Clarkston 55, No. 6 Archbishop Murphy 42

YAKIMA — The Archbishop Murphy girls struggled to find their shooting touch and could never get in rhythm against Clarkston.

The sixth-seeded Wildcats made just four field goals in the first half and finished shooting just 17.5% in a loss to the fifth-seeded Bantams in the Class 1A state quarterfinals at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

Archbishop Murphy (20-6) fell to the consolation bracket and will face the loser of eighth-seeded Columbia River vs. second-seeded Lynden in a loser-out game 10:30 a.m. Friday. Clarkston (25-1) advanced to face the winner of the Columbia River-Lynden game in the semifinals at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Ava Marr tallied 10 points and nine rebounds, Taylor Cushing had 10 points and six rebounds and Ashley Fletcher chipped in seven points and 11 boards for the Wildcats, who shot just 10-of-57 from the field.

Eloise Teasley scored a game-high 15 points, Kendall Wallace had 12 points and six rebounds and Ella Leavitt chipped in 10 points and seven rebounds for Clarkston.

Marr and free throws helped the Wildcats keep the game close early. Marr scored all 10 of her points in the first half and the Wildcats netted 14 of their first 16 points on free throws. A bucket near the hoop late in the second was Archbishop Murphy’s first of the quarter and pulled it within 19-18, but the Wildcats wouldn’t get any closer. A pair of 3-pointers from Teasley helped extend Clarkston lead to 29-22 at the half.

The Bantams pushed their lead to double digits in the third, and it hovered around there the rest of the way.



No. 3 Lynden Christian 63, No. 4 King’s 50

TACOMA — Turnovers and cold shooting proved too much for the King’s girls to overcome against Lynden Christian.

The fourth-seeded Knights shot just 31.6% from the field and surrendered 28 points off of turnovers as they fell to the sixth-seeded Lyncs.

King’s (18-10) dropped to the consolation bracket and will face the loser of No. 9 Cashmere vs. No. 2 Deer Park in a loser-out game 2 p.m. Friday. Lynden Christian (19-7) advanced to the semifinals at 9 p.m. Friday against the winner of the Cashmere-Deer Park game.

Kaleo Anderson registered 22 points and six rebounds, Kaitlin Cramer had nine points and Molly Kyler added eight for King’s.

Grace Hintz had 16 points and six rebounds, Allison Shumate scored 14 points and and Ella Fritts chipped in 10 points for Lydnen Christian.
