All-League Girls Teams

March 6, 1999

KingCo 4A

First team - Lindsey Wilson, 5-9, Sr., Roosevelt; Yolanda Dixon, 5-6, Sr., Franklin; Emily Ashbaugh, 6-4, Jr., Redmond; Cathrine Kraayeveld, 6-3, Jr., Lake Washington; Jennie Rondel, 6-2, Jr., Lake Washington. 
Second team - Jenny Maag, 5-11, Sr., Bothell; Lisa Milne, 5-7, Sr., Redmond; Jamie Nelson, 5-9, Jr., Eastlake; Devon Crosby-Helms, 5-11, Jr., Roosevelt; Brina Chaney, 6-5, Jr., Inglemoor. MVP - Lindsey Wilson, Roosevelt. Coach of year - Bill Resler, Roosevelt.

KingCo Time Capsule

December 15, 1998

Coach - Dave Gertlar, first year.

Last year - 13-0 league, 24-5 overall. Lake Division champions, KingCo tournament runners-up, district tournament champions, sixth at Class 4A state tournament.

Returning starters (2) - F Jenny Maag, 5-11, sr.; G Amy Lambinicio, 5-8, jr.

Other returning varsity - C Bree Kelly, 6-2, jr.; F Mariah Pallansch, 5-10, sr.; G Shannon Price, 5-6, jr.

Key newcomers - G Michelle Shoucair, 5-7, jr.; F Lindsay Behrens, 5-11, so.; G Ashely Kmiecik, 5-4, so.; C Heidi Corbin, 6-0, so.

Outlook - Cougars must replace league MVP Becki Ashbaugh and Jennae Krell, but don't expect them to fall far. Maag, a second-team all-league choice, provides solid foundation, and plenty of quickness and confidence returns from last season's run to state semifinals. Pallansch should emerge and defense will be good, as always. How well the Cougars adjust to third coach in three years is critical.

Times Star of the Week

Jenny Maag, Bothell basketball

The 5-foot-11 junior was named to the all-tournament second team at last week's Class 4A girls state basketball tournament at the Kingdome. She averaged a team-high 14 points and eight rebounds to help the Cougars earn their first state trophy. Her high game was 20 in a 79-50 quarterfinal victory over defending state champion Federal Way. She also scored a team-high 18 in a semifinal loss to top-ranked Enumclaw.

Girls Basketball Wes-Sea-King 4A — Bothell, Inglemoor Qualify For State

March 1, 1998

SNOHOMISH - Ashley Wright expects to have a few bruises this morning. That's what you get when you challenge every shot and every cut Sehome's 6-foot-3 Sarah Onion makes for 32 minutes.
But after Bothell's 53-43 victory over sixth-ranked Sehome last night in the semifinal of the Wes-Sea-King bi-district tournament at Snohomish, Wright knew the punishment was worth it.
The Cougars are going to the state tournament.
"I think I maybe have a few (bruises) on my arms and a few on my head because she's a little taller than me," said the 6-foot forward, who finished with four points and six rebounds.
"But we had great help and I think we did a good job. I think everyone is starting to feel it. I think we're ready for the rest of the season."
Seventh-ranked Bothell (21-3) will play Inglemoor in Friday's tournament final because of its defense. The Cougars led Sehome 11-2 after the first quarter, outrebounded the Mariners 40-28 and held them to 24-percent shooting.
Onion (10 points) and fellow senior Stacey Miller (17) were a combined two of 20 from the field through three quarters against Bothell's collapsing defense. By the time they started making shots, it was too late.
...
Bothell Coach Dennis Olson has made it clear his players won't play if they don't defend, which is why Jenny Maag found herself on the bench in the third quarter.

KingCo Metro All-Stars

Ashbaugh led all girls in scoring (19.1 per game) during league play and helped the seventh-ranked Cougars to a 17-game winning streak and a 13-0 league record.

Ellensburg Knocks Off Bothell In First Game

December 2, 1997

SNOQUALMIE - Bothell is expected to be one of the top Class 4A girls basketball teams in the state this season.

The same can be said for Ellensburg in Class 3A.

But it was Ellensburg that had the upper hand last night in the opening round of the Puget Sound Sports Council Preseason Invitational tournament at Mount Si High School. The Bulldogs from the Mid-Valley League stunned the Cougars from the KingCo Conference 56-55. ...

Jenny Maag led Bothell with 14 points, Jennae Krell had 11 and Ashley Wright finished with 10.

Bothell led 16-6 after the first quarter and still owned a 44-38 lead going into the final period. Ellensburg outscored the Cougars 18-11 in the final period.

The loss ruined Dennis Olson's coaching debut at Bothell. Olson, the architect of Auburn High School girls basketball powerhouses, came out of retirement to take over the Cougar program this season.

Kingco Girls / No. 3 Bothell 58, Lake Washington 53 (Ot) — Babin Watches Krell Rescue Cougars In Ot — Bothell Stays Unbeaten With Physical Victory

By Tom Fuller
Seattle Times Staff Reporter

BOTHELL - The crowd at Bothell High School resembled a teeter-totter. One side stood and screamed while the other sat and groaned with every free throw, basket and turnover Bothell and Lake Washington produced last night in a harried game between KingCo Conference powers.

The only difference between the paying spectators and Jen Babin was that she screamed and groaned from the Bothell bench. The Cougars' All-KingCo forward fouled out with 4:48 to play in the third quarter and her team down by one. She scored six points and played 15 minutes, both meager numbers for the Bothell senior. But the deep Cougars scrapped and clawed their way past Lake Washington 58-53 in overtime to stay unbeaten.

Bothell High Trio just loves to Play Basketball

BOTHELL - Ask Jen Babin, Becki Ashbaugh and Jennae Krell if they have any hobbies outside of basketball and you'll get a short response.

Save for school and Krell's interest in Stephen King stories, the Bothell High trio doesn't have any.

"I chose this," said Ashbaugh, the Cougars' 5-foot-6 junior point guard. "I have no regrets. I'd play basketball every minute if I could."
