Seattle Christian Girls Going Back To State

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE - The Seattle Christian girls basketball team is going back to the Class 1A state basketball tournament after a one-year absence.

The Warriors renewed their ticket with a 50-30 victory over Coupeville last night in a loser-out game of the Tri-District tournament at Mountlake Terrace High School.

Seattle Christian will make its third state-tournament appearance in four years, starting next Wednesday at the Tacome Dome.

Coach Scott Moe credits a hard work ethic during the off-season for this season's revival.

"The girls worked really hard all year to get to this point," Moe said. "It's kind of scary when it all comes down to a single game, but the hard work definitely paid off tonight."

The Warriors (18-5) still have some unfinished business before making plans for state. They will play Charles Wright at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow at Mountlake Terrace to determine Tri-Distict's third and fourth places. Charles Wright clinched a state berth last night by eliminating University Prep of Seattle 39-36.

Seattle Christian's defense helped force 35 Coupeville turnovers. The Wolves managed only seven field goals and scored 16 of their 30 points at the free-throw line.

Kristen Ridgway and Melissa Kiyohara led Seattle Christian with 11 points and seven rebounds each.
