Wolverines lose to La Conner, but head to the postseason

Basketball season ended for the lady Wolverines with a lost to LaConner 26-63, however, coach Fred Woods said that he was proud of the team.

“You pretty much have to play a perfect game against LaConner, they are that good,” he said.

With several pass interceptions by the Wolverines and scrappy defense, teamwork and good shots by senior Victoria Polda, junior Bailee Lambright, and others, the game was a solid effort on the part of the Wolverines, according to Woods.

Polda kicked off the game with a two-point shot, but by the end of the first half, the score was 12-39. The girls began to catch up in the second half with a three-point jump shot, however, for every basket the Wolverines made, LaConner answered back with a vengeance.

“We hope to play them again in the postseason,” Woods said. Next week the playoffs for state will begin, and if the girls win two of the next three games, they move forward in the tournament. If they lose two, however, they will be done.

Tuesday is the first of those three, against Auburn Adventist, in Auburn, Feb. 12.

Woods said all in all the season has been a good one, with some really tough games.

“I think our record shows the strength of the girls,” Woods said, clearly proud.
