The winter sports season has officially ended for the Friday Harbor Wolverines.
The Wolverine boys basketball team fought all the way to the end but fell to the Willapa Valley Vikings on Saturday, Feb. 24 in Tumwater during a regional playoff game. The Vikings beat the Wolverines 51-37.
Overall this last season, the boys saw 12 wins and 10 losses total, and seven wins, three losses in the league. They started the season off by losing to Blain and Vachon in early December but then turned it around to beat La Conner and Concrete in their last two regular-season games.
The team then went on to the 2B tri-district championship, where it beat the Auburn Adventist Academy Falcons, 66-64, and then the Darrington Loggers, 48-47.
One member of our wrestling team competed at the Tacoma dome this season. Stephen Nicholson competed well, winning his first match before losing back to back matches in the double-elimination tournament. He earned his way to the event by placing in his weight class at last week’s regional tournament at Kalama. Visit our league website at http://www.nw1a2bathletics.com/, for more information.
Our girls’ basketball team finished third in their league this season and took on Crosspoint here in a winner advance game to the tri-district tournament. Unfortunately, the girls fell short losing to Crosspoint 42-54. The girls played well down the stretch to earn the third-place spot in our league and earn the home playoff game.
