Offensive woes sink Warriors | Girls basketball

Edmonds-Woodway girls will graduate entire starting lineup

Edmonds-Woodway stayed right with Snohomish midway through the third quarter.

But then the Warriors went cold from the field and the Panthers pulled away for a 48-33 victory in a loser-out 3A District 1 girls basketball tournament game Thursday, Feb. 20, at Shorewood High School in Shoreline.

“It’s kind of been our downfall – poor shooting,” Edmonds-Woodway coach Jon Rasmussen said. “We were good halfway through the third. It was tied up. … Our defense was sound. We couldn’t hit a basket. We got a lot of good looks. It was just one of those nights. Our inconsistency caught up to us again.”

Edmonds-Woodway connected on only 20 percent of its shots.

“You’re not going to win many games shooting that,” Rasmussen said.

The Warriors finished 12-11 overall. Rasmussen noted that Edmonds-Woodway beat Snohomish during the regular season and also knocked off district rival Meadowdale, which defeated the Panthers in a winner-to-state/loser-out game Saturday, Feb. 22. The Warriors also had a regular-season victory over Ferndale, the team that beat Edmonds-Woodway in a first-round district game.

“It wasn’t our time or night,” Rasmussen said.

The Warriors will undergo a major transition with the graduation of all five senior starters – A.J. Martineau, Maddie McMahon, Mia Dickenson, Jadyn Waram and Brooke Kearney. Martineau has started as point guard since her freshman season.

“It was a good season. A lot of players took on new roles,” Rasmussen said. “They were a great group of seniors. It was an emotional locker room when we left.”

Rasmussen is interested to see who will emerge from the bench and junior varsity team.

“There are a lot of good kids on JV,” he said. “A lot of players sat behind the seniors. They’ll have a chance to prove themselves next year. … There are some pieces coming back. But they’ll be a lot of new kids and new roles.”
