Getchell pulls away from Wildcats / Girls basketball

A big fourth quarter helped visiting Marysville Getchell secure a 60-35 win over the Oak Harbor High School girls basketball team in the Wildcats’ season finale Friday, Feb. 7.

The season got off to a promising start for Oak Harbor, which won five of its first six games, all non-leaguers. Once Western Conference play started, however, the Wildcats struggled, finishing with a 7-13 overall record and 1-13 in league.

Getchell, which led 13-9, 29-17 and 39-27 after the first three quarters, outscored Oak Harbor 21-8 in the fourth period to cement the win.

The Wildcats were led in scoring by seniors Jasmine Ford (12 points), Mikhaela Cortez (8), Anna Jones (8) and Olivia Waite (3). Sophomores Grace Waite (3) and Chloe Frank (1) also scored for Oak Harbor.

Freshman Ellie Jackson paced Getchell (5-8, 8-11) with 17 points.
