FINAL | #3 Federal Way 95, #7 Curtis 67 (3rd/5th place)
After a disappointing loss to second-ranked Gonzaga Prep in the semifinals that saw stars Jaden McDaniels and Tari Eason finish the game on the bench having fouled out, the third-ranked Eagles took out their aggression on seventh-ranked Curtis (21-8) on Saturday. In a game that ended with a running clock, the Eagles rolled to a 95-67 win to claim third place.

Glacier Peak trailed by as many as 13, but outscored the Bears 21-4 in the fourth quarter to score the comeback victory.

Miller finished with just six points and picked up a technical foul during the game, but junior Jordyn Jenkins picked up the slack. Jenkins finished with 32 points, shooting 11-for-15 from the field and 10-for-10 from the free-throw line.
The Chargers jumped out to a 14-5 advantage at the end of the first quarter and led by as many as 15, but the Lions made a run when Miller fouled out late in the third quarter on an offensive foul. Kentridge responded to the run in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Lions 27-20 to get its third victory of the season over Bellarmine Prep.
Junior Callie Stevens led the Lions, who finished fifth, with 19 points.
FINAL | #4 Marysville-Pilchuck 71, #5 Kelso 60 (4th/6th place)
The fourth-ranked Tomahawks (23-4) opening-round loss to O’Dea isn’t looking so bad now. The Fighting Irish advanced to the 3A state championship game, and Marysville Pilchuck defeated No. 5 Kelso (22-6) 71-60 on Saturday to secure fourth place in the tournament.

Anderson scored 39 points, shooting 11-for-24 from the field, 4-for-5 from 3-point range and 13-for-13 from the free-throw line. His 39 points gave him 122 for the tournament, which breaks the all-time 3A state tournament scoring record. Senior Riley Noah also added 11 points for the Hilanders, who only had three players score in the game.
Kelso placed sixth in the tournament.

Instead, the two teams had to settle for playing each other for third or fifth place after disappointing semifinal losses on Friday. The Braves got the better of the Bulldogs to claim third, winning 64-58.
Senior Oumou Toure and Rylie Clark each scored 20 points for the Braves in their final game. Clark shot 9-for-12 from the field, while Toure was 7-for-14. The Braves won the game, despite shooting 0-for-9 from 3-point range.

FINAL | #5 Glacier Peak 53, #1 Woodinville 51
The top-ranked Falcons (24-5) had the ball trailing by two in the final seconds, but failed to get off a shot due, in large part, to Glacier Peak’s smothering defense and the fifth-ranked Grizzlies (22-4) defeated Woodinville 53-51.
Woodinville senior Morgan Lundquist missed a baseline jumper with less than 15 seconds to play, but the Falcons secured the offensive rebound and called for a timeout to set up one final play.
