Two seniors end Storm careers with loss


Squalicum's Meghan Lowry finished her career with the girls' basketball team with a 41-27 loss to Anacortes on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at Squalicum High School.

"I'm really happy for Meghan Lowry," Squalicum coach Mark Wright said in a phone interview. "She had a great season. I can't think of a girl who helped us survive some tough times more than Meghan."

Lowry ended her career with a team-high eight points. Lissette Meza also had eight points on the night.

The other senior for Squalicum, Shaunee Hooper, finished her career with one point and 10 rebounds.

"We didn't do a very good job of getting our kids in position to score tonight," Wright said. "But I'm proud of our seniors. We had improvement and we just have to build on that."

The Storm finished the season with a 7-13 record.
