The Meadowdale Lady Mavericks tried to keep pace with the District 1 3A Girls Basketball Tournament No. 1 seed on Thursday, but the high-flying Arlington Lady Eagles proved to be too much for the Lady Mavs.
Meadowdale fell to the hot-shooting Eagles 62-49 in the district tourney first-round game played at Arlington High School.
Arlington made 16 shots from behind the three-point arc, tying an Eagle’s school record. Sierra Scheppele converted five of nine three-point shot attempts and led the Eagles with 19 points.
Lilly Williams scored 19 points for Meadowdale; Fatoumata Jaiteh added 10 points in the loss.
The No. 8-seeded Lady Mavs will next challenge the No. 4-seed Marysville-Getchell Chargers on Friday, Feb. 15, in a district tournament loser-out contest; tipoff is slated for 6 p.m.
