Terrace’s Ryan Shannon (23) blocks Snohomish star guard, Luke Hamlin (12)
in the Mountlake Terrace Holiday Tournament Championship.
Unlike the first short week for the holidays, this was a very exciting one, as it featured the Mountlake Terrace Holiday Tournament. It started with Mountlake Terrace defeating star big man, Ryan Shannon’s old team, Marysville-Pilchuck, 84-50. Then Snohomish beat Mark-Morris 55-51 to set up the dream match-up of two of the top teams in the state for the finals (more on that later).
Also happening this week, Meadowdale pulled out a close win over Stanwood, 49-48 to bring their record back to .500 (6-6). Meadowdale opened the year with one of the worst starts in recent history, starting 0-3. With the loss, Stanwood’s record dropped to 5-5 after starting the year 4-2.See my player of the week and my WesCo Power Rankings after the jump!
