Coming off an impressive 2020 record, the Woodinville High School girls basketball team returned to the short pandemic-influenced season with a vigor to succeed.

The undefeated Lady Falcons conquered Inglemoor High School with a score of 74-50 in the final game of the condensed season on May 7. With just five games on the schedule, the team also defeated North Creek High School twice (68-30, 74-29) and Bothell High School twice (67-49, 77-53).

Senior Mia Hughes led in scoring in the final game with 23 points, followed by 16 points for junior Tatum Thompson and 14 points for junior Veronica Sheffey. 

Hughes nabbed 11 rebounds, six of which were offensive rebounds, out of the 27 total team rebounds. She also contributed four assists and Sheffey added six more. 

Thompson recorded the most steals with four out of the total 17. Senior Natalie Bright and Sheffey each logged three steals. Both sophomore Brooke Beresford and junior Autumn Sellie had two steals as well. 

In five games, Hughes scored 107 total points, 49 rebounds, 17 assists and 14 steals. Thompson garnered 86 points, 35 rebounds and 22 steals, followed by Sheffey with 49 points and 22 rebounds.

The 2020 KingCo 4A champion team will be graduating four seniors this year: Hughes, Bright, Hannah Bowles and Emma Unruh.
