MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Getchell girls basketball team held off Lakewood in a 56-50 win Jan. 6.

It’s the kind of win the girls needed after a 12-day break from games, MG coach Shannon Grandbois said. The game tested the Chargers’ composure and bench depth as they had only nine players active.

“They’re well-composed,” Grandbois said about her Chargers’ performance. “We’ve been fighting through a lot of adversity.”

Lakewood’s Marissa Blair scored a game-high 23 points, but it was MG’s depth that made the difference, Grandbois said.

MG led at the end of every quarter, but Lakewood got hot toward the end of the final quarter, making it a three-point game at 44-41 and then 51-49 with less then a minute left. MG was able to keep the lead with clutch 3-pointers from Gabby Grandbois and Carly Wika. Post moves and scoring by Mikail Montez, who led the Chargers with 20 points, was also crucial, Grandois said.

MG improved its record 6-4, and Lakewood fell to 6-4. MG will host Marysville-Pilchuck Jan. 13 at 7:15 p.m.

TULALIP — Keryn Parks scored 21 points to lead the Tulalip Heritage girls basketball team to a 58-38 win over Lopez Island Jan. 5. Tulalip is a perfect 9-0 for the season. They will host Lopez Island Jan. 11 at 3:30 p.m.

BELLEVUE — Rayshante Williams of Marysville-Pilchuck led her girls basketball team with 10 points in a 53-35 loss to Interlake Jan. 4. M-P’s record fell to 2-8. The Tomahawks next game is at Marysville Getchell Jan. 13 at 7:15 p.m.

TULALIP — Robert Miles Jr. scored a game-high 19 points and teammate Josh Jukes added 14 to lead the Tulalip Heritage boys basketball team in a win over Lopez Island 59-33 Jan. 5, improving their record 4-5. The Hawks host Orcas Christian Jan. 11 at 5:15 p.m.
