Prep girls basketball: Wildcats beat Hawks

Despite a 20-point performance by freshman Elise Colvin, the Mountlake Terrace Hawks couldn’t keep up with the Archbishop Murphy Wildcats on Tuesday as the Hawks fell to ABM 66-50 in a Wesco League girls basketball game played at Mountlake Terrace High School.

Colvin led all scorers in the contest but the Wildcats’ duo of Taylor Reed and Julia Lucas combined for 37 points to give the visitors the victory. Reed tallied 19 points while Lucas scored 18 points for the Wildcats.

Tuesday’s game was the first of three home contests for Mountlake Terrace to close out the team’s 2019-2020 regular season. The Hawks are still in contention for a berth in the postseason District 1/2 2A tournament, but will likely have to hit the road for any district tourney action.

Terrace will next host the Meadowdale Mavericks in the opener of a unique girls/boys basketball doubleheader on Friday, Feb. 7; the Lady Hawks’ play at 5:40 p.m. with the Terrace-Meadowdale boys’ game to follow at approximately 7:15 p.m.
