Sequim girls fall to Olympic at districts

The Wolves kept it much closer this time around, but Olympic still has Sequim’s number.

The Trojans topped Sequim 66-54 in the first round of the West Central District playoffs at Foss High School in Tacoma Tuesday night.

The loss drops Sequim (11-13) into the loser-out consolation game at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 19, against the loser of the Eatonville/Foster district quarterfinal game played on Thursday night.

Jalyn Halstead and Shannon Jackson scored 17 points each to lead the Trojans (14-9).

Senior guard Lea Hopson led Sequim with 22 points, seven rebounds and five steals while Haleigh Harrison added 14 points in the losing effort.

After falling to the Trojans by 20 points in their last meeting, the Wolves battled toe-to-toe with Olympic for three quarters before fading in the final quarter.

After Sequim jumped out to a 6-2 lead in the opening minutes, Olympic battled back to lead 14-11 after one quarter and 31-27 at halftime.

After Halstead sank a pair of 3-pointers, Sequim fought back and closed to within five at 39-34 on a pair of Hopson hoops and scores by Harrison and Columbia Haupt.

Olympic got to the free throw line 20 times in the fourth quarter, hitting 11 freebies and out-scoring Sequim 25-18.

Olympic outrebounded Sequim 39-27.
