Wednesday night’s West Seattle High School–Chief Sealth International High School girls-varsity basketball game at WSHS took up where the previous night’s boys’ game left off. Both teams played a very up-tempo, aggressive game – here’s Chelle McMonigle amid Sealth double-teaming:
But West Seattle managed to control the ball for most of the game and came away with a 44-21 win. More photos as the summary continues ahead:

West Seattle started building its double-digit lead in the second quarter, after Sealth had problems keeping control of the ball in heavy traffic.

West Seattle limited Sealth to only one basket in the second quarter and one in the third.

Two West Seattle players did most of the scoring – Lexi Iaone, who dominated the first half – here she is blocking Sealth’s Veronika Korrell …
… and Lydia Giomi, who played a very solid second half:
Iaone and Giomi each had 14 points on the night. Sidney Proctor was the Seahawks’ top scorer with 8 points. Next up, Sealth plays at Lakeside, 8 pm Friday; WSHS hosts Seattle Lutheran at 5:15 pm Saturday – and the Seahawks will host the Wildcats at 7:30 pm Wednesday, January 23rd.
