After a 52-3 loss to Marysville-Pilchuck a week before, the Snohomish Panthers tried to redeem themselves as well as try to secure a state berth playing the Lakes Lancers last Friday. The Panthers punched into the endzone first with a 16-yard run by sophomore Joshua Vandergriend, but that would be all the Panthers could muster as they lost 31-7 in the week 10 winner-to-state playoff game in Snohomish. The Panthers found the Lakes’ ground attack too much. Lancers leading rusher Devon Nofoa-Masoe ran for 182 yards against the Panther defense. Vandergriend and senior
Tyler Larson, who have combined for over 1,400 yards of rushing for the Panthers, were only able to muster 84 yards total between them for the game.

Doug's Sports Update
By DOUG RAMSAY, contributing writer

As the prep winter sports regular season begins to wrap up, the post-season line-up for basketball is beginning to unfold.
At Snohomish High School, the Panther girls opened this week in a three-way tie for the Wesco 3A’s top spot. Tied with the Archbishop Murphy Wildcats and the Arlington Eagles, while the Shorecrest Scots are just one-game behind the top three. The Wildcats are a 2A level team and will not factor into the District 3A tournament. The Panthers have two games scheduled this week, both on the road. That includes a meeting with the Eagles in Arlington on Friday that could determine which team gains the league title. The Panthers’ final regular-season home game is this coming Monday, Feb. 4 against the Everett Seagulls. The Panthers were 11-6, 10-1 league entering this week with senior Maya DuChesne leading the team with a 13.9-points per game average. Senior Courtney Perry follows with 11.1-points per game.
The Panther boys have struggled all season. At 5-12, 2-9 league, the Panthers tied with the Everett Seagulls in the Wesco 3A cellar. Although the team is at the bottom, senior Kolton Smith’s 21.1-point average per game puts him third on the Wesco 3A leader board.
At Glacier Peak, the Grizzly girls are soaring high with a 16-1 (11-0 league) record at the start of this week and are in the lone position at the top of the Wesco 4A. Averaging 60.4 points per game, the Grizzlies also lead the Wesco 4A. In fact the team has outscored opponents 1,027 to 596 entering this week. The Wesco-Kingco bi-district tournament begins on Feb. 7, with the top two seeds receiving a first round bye and avoiding a loser-out matchup.
The Monroe Bearcats boys are 4-13 (3-8 league) going into this week. They lost four-straight games prior to this week including a 65-48 loss to first-place Jackson last Friday.
Junior Efton Chism III leads the Bearcats with 16.2 points per-game which puts him into the top five of scorers in the Wesco 4A.
After eight-straight losses, the Everett Seagull boy’s were able to come out with a win by beating Oak Harbor 53-45 last Friday. At 3-14 (2-9 league), the Gulls are hard pressed to see post-season action this year. The Seagull girls could also miss out on the post-season as they were in eighth-place going into the week with a record of 8-9 (3-8 league). The gulls won two of their last five at the week’s start.
