Proud parents of players on the Metro Sound Division champion West Seattle High School girls-varsity basketball team made that sign to cheer them on as they started postseason play at Cleveland High School tonight. The home team won, 66-44; the game got off to a fast-paced, physical start.
It was within reach for the Wildcats until the third, when Cleveland went to a full-court press.
The third also saw foul trouble for Lydia Giomi, leading scorer for West Seattle with 15. Charli Elliott, who had 8 points, went out with a nosebleed.
Second-highest scorer for the Wildcats was Lexi Ioane with 13. Head coach Sonya Elliott (below center, with assistant varsity coach Ashley Ioane at right) says their next game will be Thursday.
She’s expecting to get word by morning of who they’ll play and where; we’ll update this story when that info’s in.
2:09 PM: From Coach Elliott – they’ll play at 7 pm Thursday at Holy Names Academy on Capitol Hill, vs. HNA (728 21st Ave. E.).
