Boys basketball: Wolves join the record books

During his senior season, Sequim guard Ben Webb had high praise for his younger brothers, Ary and Corbin.

Particularly for that youngest one, Corbin, then a middle schooler.

“He’s going to be the best of all of us,” he said.

Hard to argue with the numbers.

Corbin finished his four years at Sequim High with 1,052 points scored, just the fifth player in Sequim High history since assistant coach Larry Hill started keeping track in the mid-1970s.

Webb only trails Ryan Kaps, James McCutcheon, Chad Jacobs and Kris Kruse on the list (see box).

Webb edged past his brother Ary, who’s sixth on the all-time list with 989 points scored. (Hampered a bit by little playing time as a freshman, Ary is the school record holder in career 3-pointers made with 197.)

With 217 points scored in the postseason, Corbin Webb is second on the all-time list behind Kaps’ 362. Ary Webb is fourth on that list with 163. Steve Sullivan is tops in postseason average with 22.3 points per contest.

SHS senior Evan Hill finished tops in career charges taken with 21, including a team-record 12 in his final season. He also finished with the fifth-highest free-throw percentage for a season at 84 percent.

Webb and Hill were both selected to play in the West Sound All-Star Game in Bremerton on March 14.  

Larry Hill said that the Wolves’ season saw some impressive individual performances, including Corbin Webb’s 12-for-12 night at the free-throw line on Dec. 12 against Peninsula and Jayson Brocklesby’s 11-for-11 field goal effort against Bremerton in November.

Brocklesby, Hill noted, likely has a school season and career record few have kept stats on: slam dunks.

“Doubt we’ve ever had a player get more than two or three in a season before; Brock had a bunch this year,” Hill said.

Looking to next season, senior-to-be Gabe Carter looks primed to climb into top-10 lists in rebounding, scoring and perhaps more.
