The Mount Si girls basketball team split last week, beating Interlake on the road Wednesday, Dec. 7, then falling to a tough Lake Washington team, Friday, Dec. 9.

Mount Si handled the Saints, 53-37, on Wednesday. On Friday night, in the first game of double boys-girls home match-up against the Lake Washington Kangaroos, the girls were outplayed offensively, falling 42-33.

“We knew it was going to be physical,” Mount Si coach Megan Botulinski said of the game. Both teams came out and played hard, she said.

Freshman Elizabeth Prewitt had her varsity debut last week, scoring eight points in four minutes against the Saints.

“The ball was in my hands, and it was open,” Prewitt recalled. “I went out there and tried to have fun.”

Prewitt was part of a hard-working swing group for Mount Si that included Sally Nelson and Darian Michaud.

Junior Molly Sellers, Mount Si’s leading scorer with senior Jordan Riley, praised their work Friday.

“We’ve got to finish those shots,” said Sellers, who said the team must grow offensively to beat the likes of the Kangs.  Mount Si next visits Juanita, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, then faces Lakeside at 4:15 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
