Prep hoops roundup: 3 local squads earn state regional berths

The Mountlake Terrace and Darrington boys and King’s girls all advanced.

MOUNT VERNON — Jace Breakfield led all scorers with 23 points and Mountlake Terrace ended its brief hiatus from the regional round of the state tournament with a 65-49 victory over Anacortes in a loser-out 2A Northwest/Sea-King Bi-District Tournament game.

Vitaly Mkrtychyan added 10 points off the bench for the Hawks (18-6), who are set for their fourth regional appearance in the past five seasons after falling one win shy last year.

Mountlake Terrace needed a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Muhammed Kinteh to top Anacortes in the first round of the bi-district tournament, but the rematch offered a much different outcome.

“Our kids came out with a tremendous focus,” Mountlake Terrace coach Nalin Sood said. “They knew they needed to be on top of things to get things done.”The Hawks took a 32-21 lead into halftime after being tied 9-9 at the end of the first quarter.

The Seahawks (14-11) pulled within 39-33 midway through the third, but Mountlake Terrace held of the Anacortes push and ended the Seahawks’ season.

“We had a checklist of things we had to do like any team does. For the most part, I think we had a lot of checks tonight,” Sood said. “We had multiple guys that came and brought a great effort tonight.”

SEDRO-WOOLLEY — Caleb Rivera poured in 28 points to help Darrington (17-6) secure a berth to the regional round of the state tournament with a win over Auburn Adventist (18-4) in a 2B tri-district tournament matchup.
