She scored 19 against Sammamish and had 11 rebounds, last Friday, Jan. 10.

Senior Post Annie Hiebert had 10 points.

Playing against Bellevue on Wednesday, Jan. 15, Mount Si fell, 77-33. Mount Si was closer on Friday, Jan. 17, ending 36-47 against Lake Washington. Sally Nelson and Prewitt both had eight points. Kylie McLaughlin added six, Annie Hiebert had seven boards and four points. Makayla Turpin had four points, and Mady Privatski,

Hayden Frederick and Emma Smith each scored two points.

Mount Si is 0-8 in conference, 2-12 overall.
