Girls basketball: Glacier Peak tops Oak Harbor

Glacier Peak jumped on the Oak Harbor High School girls basketball team early and didn't let up in its 63-41 win in Snohomish Wednesday, Jan. 12.

The Grizzlies led 16-9 at the end of the first quarter, 38-19 at the half and 51-26 heading into the final frame.

Oak Harbor coach Trisha Clayville said Glacier Peak shot "very, very well" while her club shot just "okay."

Other than that, Oak Harbor "played well," according to Clayville. She added, "The kids played hard the whole time."

The Wildcats' leading scorer, point-guard Janelle Yoshimoto, picked up four fouls in the first four minutes of the game, hampering Oak Harbor's offensive effort. The senior finished with just four points.

Clayville said, "Our goal is to get better every game, and I think we are achieving that."

The game with Glacier Peak (5-2, 8-5) marked the end of the first time through the Wesco schedule for Oak Harbor. Clayville said, "Hopefully we will get a few wins the second time around."

The beginning of the second round will be tough for Oak Harbor (0-7, 1-12). The Wildcats travel to state-ranked and first-place Lynnwood (6-1, 11-2) Friday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m.

Next Tuesday, Jan. 18, Shorewood (1-5, 2-10) visits Oak Harbor.

Emilie Renninger, who hit three threes, led Oak Harbor against Glacier Peak with 13 points. Ciera Wiser added nine, Clarissa Abadesco six, Tatiana Cumming three, Annie Leete two and Adrianna Royal two.

In a statistic oddity, Oak Harbor out rebounded the Grizzlies 44-14. The Wildcats had 23 turnovers to 18 for GP.
