The Vashon High School girls’ basketball team started the season off with the traditional Seattle Christian Jamboree, on Saturday, Nov. 24, at Seattle Christian High School.

The girls won both of their 10 minute exhibition games, defeating Charles Wright 19 to 2 and Shoreline Christian 15 to 11.

The girls came out using passing and ball control to dismantle a young Charles Wright team.

In the face of strong defense from the Pirates, the Terriers could not score a basket until there was less than one minute to go in the game.

In the second of back-to-back games, Vashon faced a bigger and more rugged team in Shoreline Christian.

But with good execution in running the offenses and breaking the Defenders’ full court press, the Pirates came away with a tough earned victory.

The Pirates start their season at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, against Fife on the home court at the high school gym.
