7:46 PM: School’s out until next Monday, but it’s not a full vacation for some local high-school basketball teams. This afternoon in Mountlake Terrace, the West Seattle High School boys’ varsity team had its first loss of the season, 49-43, to the host team in the MTHS holiday tournament. … The WSHS varsity girls remain undefeated, 9-0 after a victory over Olympic HS in East Bremerton earlier this week, 76-31 … Last night, the Seattle Lutheran HS boys beat The Northwest School, 51-26 (thanks to Mike Jensen for the score report) … The Chief Sealth International High School varsity basketball teams have been off since December 18th; while the girls don’t play again until next week, the boys are playing tonight at North Kitsap, and we’ll add the score to this story when it’s in.
ADDED EARLY THURSDAY: Final score – North Kitsap 72, Chief Sealth 58 … Plus, more on the WSHS boys’ game, courtesy of our friends at MLTnews.com – here’s their video of the game webcast (and we’ve added a photo atop this roundup).
