Both girls and boys basketball win big and Wolverine wrestlers move on to state qualifiers
Wrestling takes third in sub regionals, girls basketball wins after going into overtime, and boys basketball loses, and both basketball teams head to district playoffs.
An away game on Tuesday, Jan. 26 on Orcas Island saw the Wolverines as the winners.
Wrestling takes tournament wins, boys and girls basketball one one game, and struggled through but lost a second.
Stacey Rude, the Wolverines cheerleading coach, is looking forward to a great season.
This year the Wolverines come together with 11 varsity young men, all who have played together in the past, giving the team a strong core of returning kids from last year. With lightning speed and height, the Friday Harbor boys' basketball team will be hard to beat.
The number thirteen might be unlucky for some, but the thirteen-member Wolverine wrestling team at Friday Harbor High School have high hopes of making it to state at the Tacoma Dome again this year for the 2015-2016 season. The squad sent three of their teammates James Guard (120), Sara Rist (155) and Haley Pyle (145) to the 2014-2015 championships.
Last year, the Wolverine ladies made it to states, but only one team will get out of regionals this year. Following a fairly successful season, new coach Fred Woods has a lot to live up to.
