For the first time in 26 years, Mountain View girls basketball is a league champion.

Mountain View beat Heritage 57-23 on Monday to clinch a share of the 3A Greater St. Helens League title. It’s the Thunder’s first league crown since 1998 when the program won the 4A GSHL.

Mountain View shares the league title with Evergreen, which beat Kelso 61-49 on Monday.

The Thunder and Plainsmen both finished league play 6-2 and split two games between them. They will play a tiebreaker for the No. 1 seed to the bi-district tournament at a day and time to be announced.

Mylee Thompson and Jadlyn Senderson each scored 13 points for Mountain View (15-4). The Thunder clamped down on defense, holding Heritage to 13 points through three quarters.

Evergreen clinched a share of its second consecutive league title one year after it ended a drought that stretched to 1980.

Kelso, which would have claimed a share of the league title with a win Monday, is the No. 3 seed to the bi-district tournament.

COLUMBIA RIVER 58, HOCKINSON 28 — Gracie Glavin scored 18 points as the Rapids wrapped up their second consecutive Class 2A GSHL title outright with a road win.
