Friday Harbor's Peter Strasser was named Northwest 2B/1B League 'Player of the Year' by the league's coaches.

Friday Harbor senior Peter Strasser was named “Player of the Year” of the Northwest 2B/1B League and shared top league honors with Coach Rod Turnbull, who was named Coach of the Year by his peers for the second time in the past three seasons.

The Friday Harbor boys basketball team, which, at 13-1 in league play, earned a share of the league title, along with La Conner, and brought home a bounty of post-season awards on the heels of a league-leading performance on the court.

Senior Gabe Lawson joined Strasser as a first-team all-league selection, while the rest of the Wolverines starting lineup earned second-team all-league honors; senior Bill Revercomb, juniors Kyle Jangard and Luke Stromberg, and sophomore John Gustafson.

Strasser led the Wolverines on both the offensive and defensive ends of the court, averaging 19.1 points, seven rebounds and two steals per game.

The Wolverines finished the 2014-15 season with an overall won-loss record of 18-6 and on the doorstep of the 2B state tournament, falling to Life Christian Academy, which placed fourth at State, in the final round of the Tri-District playoffs.

Turnbull, head coach of the Wolverines for 13 consecutive seasons, was named 2012-13 coach of the year by his colleagues as well.

All-league selections are determined by a vote of the league coaches.

The Friday Harbor girls basketball team collected a trio of individual post-season awards.

Junior Allie Galt was named first-team all-league, sophomore Lili Wood was named second-team all-league and junior Madie Kincaid earned honorable mention.

The Wolverines finished third in the league standings, at 10-4, 15-7 overall, and were 2-2 in post-season play.
