The Lady Wolverines played against LaConner on Feb. 9 in a match that resulted in a loss for the Wolverines.

Despite this, the lady Wolverines made it into the off-season, where their efforts would be put to the test to qualify for state.

On Feb. 13 the Lady Wolverines played the Auburn Adventist Falcons and won the match. Two days later, they matched against the LaConner Braves where they lost in a close game.

As the tides would turn it, the girls played against the Auburn Adventist Falcons again and won. With two of three games being won, the girls acquired a ticket to state.

“I’m super excited that we made it to state. I don’t remember the last time that the girl’s varsity basketball team made it to state, so I’m super happy that we made it this year!” Commented McKenna Clark, a senior captain.

According to Clark, the girl’s teamwork, dynamic, and their unyielding support for one another contributed to their win against the Falcons, and their overall opportunity to play in state.

The Lady Wolverines are set to play their first state match against the Tonasket Tigers.

“We are playing a very good team, but I know we are up for the challenge. We tend to play better against better teams, so I’m excited to see how we do.”

The girl’s game is set for Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. in Wenatchee. Congratulations to the Lady Wolverines and good luck!
