It seems like the West Seattle Wildcats have been trying to get comfortable since their last game of the regular season against Franklin. That’s the game where All Metro point guard Gabby Sarver went down with a knee injury, and Metro MVP Lydia Giomi sat out with the flu. Giomi came back two games later to help the Wildcats win the Metro League title, but then West Seattle dropped two games in a row in the District Tournament. The Wildcats were battling additional injuries across the team and seemed to be off balance, trying to figure out how to play what Head Coach Sonya Elliot described as ‘point guard by committee’ to fill the gap left by Sarver.
Tonight, the Wildcats finally got comfortable.
