Basketball teams head towards district tournaments, wrestling to sub-regional competition

A series of wins in basketball and wrestling has set the teams up for next-level competition


Wolverines wrestling team had seven matches against La Conner last week, heading back to the ferry with a 54-18 win.

The team has a sub-regional competition coming up against Concrete Saturday, Feb. 6.

Boys basketball

The boys team did well last week, winning against Orcas Island 49-37 and Mount Vernon Christian 60-11.

“Our team had a pretty emotional win versus Orcas,” said head coach Rod Turnbull. “They had defeated us at home earlier, so going over to Orcas and winning was big for us.”

Turnbull said the latest wins confirm that they will host a playoff series at the high school on Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

Girls basketball

The team won both of their games last week, an away game against Orcas Island at 48-42 and home game against Mount Vernon Christian 42-30.

“There were some great individual efforts such as Madi Kincaid and Lili Wood’s defense, but the entire team should receive credit for the great work they did,” said coach Fred Woods.”

The team has just two games left before the district tournament. Two wins next week would mean a tie for season title with La Conner.
