Wolves break into record books

Sequim Gazette staff

Their dream may have ended short of the state tournament, but several Wolves from the 2010-2011 team scored and rebounded their way into the school record books.

 

Larry Hill, SHS assistant coach and former coach, has kept tabs on all players (and their statistics) since he joined the program in the 1975-1976 season.

 

Following the most recent campaign, Hill found that senior 3-pointer specialist Nick Camporini tallied 85 triples in his two varsity seasons during regular season contests, good for a sixth career high behind Ary Webb (197), Evan Still (120), Chad Jacobs (111), James McCutcheon (103) and Chad Payne (97).

 

Camporini also set a single-game record with 17 three-point attempts, set Feb. 12 against White River (he sank five of them). He broke a 21-year-old record of 15 attempts, set by Derrell Sharp against Olympic High.

 

Sophomore Gabe Carter had a windfall campaign in his first full varsity season. With 163 defensive rebounds, Carter broke Aaron Dalan’s single-season mark for defensive rebounds by four. Dalan set the standard in the 1993-1994 campaign.

 

Carter finished second for total rebounds in a single season with 207, behind Derrin Doty’s record of 245 set in 1988-1989.

 

Carter also finished the season with the sixth-best free-throw percentage, sinking better than 82 percent of his tries. Don Markley (1979-1980) holds the single-season mark with 87.8 percent.

 

Fellow sophomore Jayson Brocklesby finished the season hitting 62.5 percent of his field goal tries, fourth on the all-time single-season list behind James Brabant and Tom Estrem (twice).

 

As a team, the Wolves broke into the top five in several categories. Sequim players sank 53.8 percent of their field-goal tries, second only to the 1992-1993 Wolves (55.8 percent).

 

Sequim also had a prodigious rate with 3-pointers, hitting 36.1 percent of their tries, fourth best since the mid-1970s. The 2006-2007 squad holds the mark at 42.8 percent.

 

Sequim’s 2010-2011 squad also sank 68.6 percent of the team’s free throw attempts, fifth-best all-time.

The 2000-2001 team that qualified for the state tourney set the standard at 73 percent.
