Girls basketball: Sequim knocks off Bainbridge top open 2018-2019 season

So far, so good.

Sequim’s girls basketball squad earned a big win in its season-opener at Rick Kaps Gymnasium Thursday night, knocking off 3A non-league foe Bainbridge, 77-68.

Jayla Julmist paced Sequim (1-0) with 17 points and 20 rebounds, and Kalli Wiker erupted for 14 of her 16 points in the second quarter.

“The girls played an amazing game and fought hard all four quarters,” Sequim coach Larry Brown said.

Junior guard Olivia Wikstrom led Bainbridge (1-2) with 32 points.

Julmist and Wikstrom both 11 points in the opening frame, but Sequim held an 18-13 lead. The Wolves, behind Wiker’s sharp shooting (four 3-pointers) increased their lead to 43-26 by halftime and held a 59-42 lead after three quarters.

The Spartans, behind Wikstrom and Grace Carson (14 points) mounted a fourth quarter comeback, but Sequim freshmen Riley Pyeatt (4-for-4 on free throws in the final frame) and Hannah Wagner (nine points) helped seal the victory.

Junior Hope Glasser had a solid game for Sequim with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jessica Dietzman added nine.

Sequim is back on the court at home Monday, Dec. 3, against 1A non-league foe Coupeville.
