The fourth time was the charm. The Quilcene High School girls basketball team overcame three nights of cancellations due to bad weather before it finally hosted Northwest Yeshiva of Mercer Island on Feb. 7. And with their seasons on the line in the loser-out SeaTac League tournament game, the Rangers prevailed. Sophomore post Marissa Kieffer scored 28 points and her sister, senior forward McKenzie Kieffer, blocked nine shots as Quilcene (8-14) qualified for the Class 1B tri-district tournament. more
The Mat Classic state wrestling tournament typically is a hub of activity at the Tacoma Dome in mid-February. It’s the only high school sport that conducts its championships in all classifications at the same location simultaneously. This year, it will be even more wild. Snow wiped out all regional tournaments last weekend, so organizers of the two-day Mat Classic XXXI put together 32-man brackets for every weight division in each classification — twice the number of usual participants. Port Townsend will send nine to state, with four ranked in the top 10 by Washington Wrestling Report, and Chimacum will send one top-10 athlete. more

The Port Townsend High School boys basketball team had three scorers in double digits Jan. 15, but Klahowya held off a late push to beat the Redhawks 50-45 and clinch the Class 1A Olympic League championship at Bruce Blevins gymnasium. Junior wing Noa Montoya buried a 3-pointer on an assist from senior guard Jaden Watkins to pull Port Townsend (7-6, 2-2 league) as close as 43-39 in the fourth, although the Redhawks went just 5-for-23 from beyond the arc, coach Tom Webster said. more
The Chimacum High School boys basketball program has been in a rough cycle the past four years. New coach, new system, very little continuity. And it’s been on repeat. The Cowboys have four seniors, three of whom have been in the program all four years. Outside of their freshman seasons, when they played on the junior varsity, they can count the number of wins on one hand. They didn’t get one at all last year. more
