Girls basketball: Mount Rainier 68, Skyview 55

Published:

 

Skyview fell behind 17-4 after the first quarter and never could rally back into this Class 4A bi-district quarterfinal.

Skyview will get another chance to qualify for the 4A regionals with a win Saturday against Union or Auburn Riverside at 8 p.m. at Rogers High School in Puyallup.

“It was just a rough, rough start,” Skyview coach Jennifer Buscher said. “Our shots weren’t falling and we didn’t handle their pressure very well. We made a little run in the fourth quarter, but the closest we got was 10 points.”

Stephanie McDonagh led the Storm (19-3) with 14 points.
