ORIGINAL STORY

A nearly perfect season keeps on rolling for the Mount Si Boys Basketball program, as the team won a tightly contested state quarter final game against #11 Puyallup High School, early Thursday morning at the Tacoma Dome. The final score was 45-40.

The #4 ranked Mount Si Wildcats will face #7 Curtis High School – which upset #1 seeded Union High School 58-55 – in a semi final game Friday, March 1st at 3:45PM back at the Tacoma Dome.

In the victory over Puyallup, Bennett O’Connor finished with 13 points and 3 assists. Jabe Mullins had 13 points and 3 steals. Mount Si is now 25-2 on the season, with its last loss more than two months ago in Arizona at the Holiday Hoops Tournament.

Team members got a special send off – and police escort – out of Snoqualmie Wednesday afternoon as they headed off to Tacoma… and supporters packed the Tacoma Dome for the 9AM game.

Good Luck and Go Cats!
