6:11 PM: A formidable opponent for the West Seattle High School girls’ basketball team this afternoon at Bellevue College – top-ranked Bellevue HS. While the Wildcats hit halftime with a five-point lead over the Wolverines, an intense third quarter ensued, and Bellevue pulled ahead, ending with an eight-point victory in the district-playoff game, 58-50. West Seattle will play next for third place in districts, 1:15 pm Saturday vs. the winner of tonight’s Mercer Island-Bishop Blanchet game. We’ll add more from today’s game later.


ADDED 9:56 PM: Scoring for the Wildcats – 17 points for #30 Lexi Ioane, 10 for #3 Izzy Turk, 9 for #20 Grace Sarver, 8 for #32 Lydia Giomi.


We now know their Saturday opponent will be Mercer Island.

    That’s Russell Wilson’s sister Anna (bound for Stanford) playing defense in the photo. Great job WS girls, you make us proud.

    Actually that isn’t Russell Wilson’s sister. That’s #20. Russell Wilson’s sister is #22. But great job indeed, WSHS.

    Thanks to West Seattle supporters and students for coming out to Bellevue!  It was so great to have so much support for the WS team in a really tough game.   Hopefully, the team will have another chance to play them. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
