The Wolves (15-6) take on Sumner at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21, at Bellarmine Prep High School in Tacoma. The winner advances to play the winner of the Clover Park-Olympic matchup on Saturday for the district's fifth and final regional berth.

Foster freshman Isaiah Lewis scored 13 of his game-high 19 points in the second half.

 

Post Erik Christensen led Sequim with 17 points, going 8-for-14 from the field and sinking his only 3-point try. Alex Barry had 15 points and seven rebounds while Anthony Pinza and Vance Willis had 10 points each.
