Lilly Williams scored 14 points to lead the Mavs, but it wouldn’t be enough to keep up with Shorecrest, the No. 8-ranked 3A team in the state, according to the most recent WIAA RPI ranking).
The Scots’ Amanda Lee led all scorers in the game with 22 points; Sydney VanNess contributed 13 points while Audrey Dietz tallied 10 in the win.
