At the Chief Sealth International High School gym Wednesday night, it was the second night for the friendly rivals from West Seattle High School to visit – this time, for girls’ basketball. Above are Sealth and WSHS’s head coaches, Katie Jo Maris and Sonya Elliott respectively. Unlike the boys-varsity game the night before, the Wildcats went home with the win this time – 51-35.
Ahead, toplines and more photos:
Sealth kept the game close through the first half and tried to put a dent in a third quarter double-digit deficit, but West Seattle’s girls-varsity starters went on a long run in the second half.
The win keeps West Seattle at the top of the Metro Sound division with only four games to go in the regular season. Here are the game stats as published by our partners at The Seattle Times.
This was the Wildcats’ last game against another division team. From here they face Hale, Prep, Eastside Catholic, and Bishop Blanchet. Sealth has three games left in regular play – Ingraham, Bainbridge, and Prep, with only Bainbridge as a division game – Bainbridge being #2 behind WSHS in the Metro Sound standings.
