The perfect-record season continues for the West Seattle High School girls’ basketball team – they defeated Roosevelt Wednesday night 53-39, and moving on to Friday’s Metro League title game.

We covered the WSHS game, but before we get to more on that, three other scores:

*The WSHS boys lost to Rainier Beach, 67-57, and will play Cleveland at 7:30 pm tonight (at Ingraham HS)

*The Chief Sealth IHS boys lost to Franklin, 85-45, and play again tonight (awaiting word on time/team)
*CSIHS girls lost to Rainier Beach, 44-41, and play Holy Names at home, 5:45 pm tonight

Now, back to the Wildcat girls’ victory:


Led by Metro League Coach of the Year Darnell Taylor, the WSHS girls ran out to a 20-point lead at one point in the second half, but Roosevelt went on its own run and closed to within five points.


WSHS managed to break Roosevelt’s full-court press and roar on to victory. Metro League MVP Lydia Giomi and All-League First Team Lexi Ioane both had 18 points.

The championship game is a rematch of a game two weeks ago when Blanchet was the only other undefeated Metro League team. They meet again at 5:45 pm Friday at Ingraham HS (1819 N. 135th).

      Thanks, sorry, typo, fixed. 53-39 is what our crew at the game tweeted last night; I hit the wrong key here.

Sorry, comment time is over.
