Renton girls win big in first round of district tournament | GIRLS BASKETBALL

The Renton High School girls basketball team kept their season alive with a big win Tuesday night over Kingston, 53-26, in a loser-out game in the opening round of the district tournament.

The Indians came out hot, dropping 17 points in the first quarter and 13 in the second to take a 30-16 lead into the half. The girls tacked on another 15 points in the third and eight in the final frame while continuing to hold the Buccaneers to single digits.

Taylor Farris again led the way for the Indians with 24 points to lead all scorers. Natajia McMillan added another 14 of her own.

The win means Renton moves on in the district tournament and will play second-seeded Port Angeles on Thursday at Foss High School in Tacoma. The winner moves on to the semi-final game and the loser will play for fifth place, which would also secure a place in the regional tournament.
