Friday Harbor’s boys basketball team is headed to regionals. The team recently traveled to Sedro-Woolley High School for the 2018 District 1/2 2B boys basketball tournament championship. They went up against Crosspoint High School on Thursday, Feb. 15, and won 55-41.
“It was a good and competitive game,” said head coach Rod Turnbull.
Crosspoint took second and Orcas Island took third in the tournament. For the Wolverines, this victory means they will be attending the 2018 WIAA 2B Boys Regional Playoffs. If they win there, then they will attend the basketball tournament in Spokane, Washington. Their opponent is yet to be determined. Playoffs will be on Feb. 23 and 24 and the state tournament is Feb. 28 to March 3.
“We are excited to be a part of it,” said Turnbull.
The regional win comes on the heels of the Wolverines’ win against the La Conner Braves in the 2B bi-district playoffs on Tuesday, Feb. 13. The Wolverines took the win with a score of 52-29 at Turnbull Gym.
The girls basketball team beat Seattle Lutheran, 33-13, in the 2B bi-district playoffs in Sedro-Woolley on Feb. 14. However, they were outscored by the La Conner Braves on Friday, Feb. 16, 19-36, at the following playoff game at Sedro Woolley High School. The girls play Tri-Cities Prep at Chiawana High School on Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. in the 2B Regionals tournament.
