Sequim slips in opening games

On Feb. 23, 2008, Sequim's girls basketball squad topped Steilacoom 49-38 in the opening round of the West Central District playoffs.

It's the last time the Wolves tasted a victory.

Sequim looked to snap that 22-game slide with a trio of games this week and had a good shot on opening night on Nov. 30 at Chimacum, but dropped a two-point decision to the Cowboys.

Sequim fell to Bainbridge an evening later and on Dec. 4, fell to rival Klahowya, 49-29.

Freshman Taylor Balkan led the Wolves with seven points while Caitlin Wiker and

Rylleigh Zbaraschuk added six points apiece, but Sequim had little answer for Eagle Carly McElwee. The Klahowya senior scored 24 points and added 16 rebounds as the Eagles increased a three-point first-quarter lead to a 27-14 advantage by halftime and 35-20 after three quarters.

The Wolves (0-1 in league, 0-3 overall) were slated to play at North Mason on Dec. 8 - results were unavailable at press time.

Sequim hosts Port Townsend on Friday, Dec. 11.

Zbaraschuk led Sequim with 13 points while Lea Hopson added eight points and Haleigh Harrison chipped in six.
