A shorthanded Wolves squad saw their postseason hopes dashed in a close loss to the Olympic Trojans on Jan. 26, falling 51-47.
The defeat means Sequim will miss out on the district playoffs this season.
“Wild one on Friday night,” Wolves coach Larry Brown said. “Our girls played their best full game of the year.”
Freshman Jayla Julmist had a big game with six points and 17 rebounds, while sophomore Hope Glasser had a double-double with 14 points, 13 rebounds and four assists.
Kalli Wiker added 10 points for Sequim.
“Pilar Aliseda and Alisha Grasser were both out with injuries,” Brown noted, “so our bench was very short.”
Earlier in the week, Sequim kept its postseason hopes alive with a clutch 49-46 road win at North Mason on Jan. 23.
Glasser (19 points) and Jessica Dietzman (16) combined for 35 of the Wolves’ points and hit pressure-packed free throws late to best the Bulldogs.
“The North Mason girls played a very physical first half, which caught us off guard,” Brown said. “We started to match their physicality in the second half and built a 10-point lead at one point.”
Hailey Simonson heated up for the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter as North Mason got back in it, scoring 10 points.
“Hailey caught fire for North Mason in the fourth to bring them back,” Brown said. “Our girls responded with some crucial baskets.”
Glasser and Dietzman scored 16 of the Wolves’ 19 fourth-quarter points.
Sequim also played a non-league game in Seattle Jan. 24 at Cascade Christian, dropping a 49-24 decision.
Sequim was slated to finish their home schedule against non-league foe Coupeville on Jan. 30 — results were not available at press time.
The Wolves cap their season Feb. 1 at league-leading North Kitsap.
