The Meadowdale girls basketball booked its first trip to the state tournament in a decade.
The Mavericks pulled out a 30-28 victory over Shorecrest in a winner-to-state regionals/loser out game Saturday, Feb. 16, at Everett Community College.
Sophomore Fatoumata Jaiteh hit the game-winning 3-point shot with just under two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Scots defeated the Mavericks 57-38 earlier in the season but coach Arie Mahler noted that Meadowdale had a different lineup and Jaiteh and junior guard Alicia Morrison didn’t play in the first quarter of the first game.
