The Mountlake Terrace seventh-grade girl’s feeder team took home a third-place finish in the Silver Bracket of the Washington State Middle School Basketball Championship held in Spokane March 10-12.

Mountlake Terrace had four wins and one loss during the tournament, including wins over feeder teams representing Puyallup (45-30), Bellevue (34-28) and Inglemoor (34-23) high schools.
