Though the West Seattle High School girls lost big in their first game of the basketball playoffs – at Cleveland, the home team beat WSHS 76 to 36 – they won big in another arena: The Metro League all-league honors. As published by our partners at The Seattle Times, the Wildcats had five all-League reps: Lexi Ioane was voted to all-league Second Team, and honorable mentions went to Charli Elliott, Lydia Giomi, and Gabby Sarver – then, biggest of all, the Metro League Coach of the Year is WSHS head coach Sonya Elliott!

WSHS will play Thursday night at Holy Names, which lost its first game of the postseason to Seattle Prep.


  1. Congratulations to the girls and especially Coach Sonya. Even though they lost that game they had a great season and won our respect! Thanks to the Blog for keeping us informed.

    Thanks for the updates, WSB!
