As a sophomore, Taylor McKerlich was mostly successful on offense when she got good position under the basket.
A year later, after diligently working on her jump shot, she has proven to be an even more valuable commodity for the Skyline High School girls basketball team.

When sharpshooter Cassidy Daugherty gets going, it’s even tougher for opponents to defend a Skyline High School team filled with offensive weapons.
Daugherty had her game working Jan. 28 during a visit to Eastlake, hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 14 points as the Spartans earned a 62-50 victory in Class 4A KingCo Conference girls basketball action.

The deck was stacked against the Skyline High School girls basketball team in its first game of the 2014-15 season.
Not only were the Spartans making their debut under new head coach Joe Fithian, but they also were facing a solid Inglemoor Vikings squad that placed fourth in the state last season. Throw in the experience factor — the Vikings are a senior-laden team, while the Spartans feature six freshmen and sophomores — and the chances for an upset were slim.

Shelby Kassuba scores a career-high 24 points
With its top-three scorers from last season now playing college basketball, the Skyline High School Spartans girls basketball team has had to find new offensive sources this year.
Senior wing Shelby Kassuba is one of the players who has stepped forward, and she nearly led the Spartans to an important Class 4A KingCo Conference win Dec. 18.
Kassuba scored a career-high 24 points, including 16 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as Skyline’s rally fell short in a 61-58 loss to the visiting Bothell Cougars.
Kassuba’s outburst upped her scoring average to 12.2 points per game, and it gave Spartans coach Greg Bruns something to smile about.
