SEASIDE — An 11-0 start was all Seaside needed Thursday night, in a first-round girls game of the Seaside Holiday Classic.
The Gulls led from start to finish in a 70-48 romp over Elma, in Seaside’s first game since Dec. 6.
Just about every player on the Seaside roster contributed in the first quarter. Baskets from Sydney Villegas, Bryre Babbitt, Maddi Utti, Annaka Garhofer, Emy Kiser and Anesha Smart had the Lady Gulls in front 20-7 after one period.
Utti had 13 points by halftime, finished with 21, and narrowly missed a quadruple-double.
Villegas added 18 points for Seaside, which is scheduled to play Cottage Grove at 6:30 p.m. today. The Gulls wrap up the tournament Saturday at 4:15 p.m. against South Whidbey.
