Owls To Take On Hawks At Regionals

marymknightbbOn Saturday, the Mary M. Knight lady Owls take on Tulalip Heritage in the Class 1B girls regionals at  Tumwater High School.  Mary M. Knight (16-4) vs. Tulalip Heritage (16-4), 4 p.m. About the Owls: If MMK can hit its perimeter shots, watch out.

That’s what happened in the district title game win over Taholah to snap the Chitwins’ streak of four district crowns. The Owls’ lack of size means they must rely on the 3-pointer, which has led to a 16-win season behind Jaycee Valley – coach Lance Valley’s daughter – and Ashley Kiliz.
For Tulalip Heritage, 6-foot sophomore post Adiya Jones is everything for Hawks.  She is the team’s leading scorer and she also scored 40 points in a 50-34 regional-clinching win over Shoreline Christian on Feb. 21.
