Sequim’s Wolves were on holiday but not completely on break, traveling across the Puget Sound for a pair of non-league games last week.

A first half lead dissipated after the Wolves got into foul trouble, leading to a 61-44 loss at Anacortes on Jan. 2.

Jayla Julmist had a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds, and Hope Glasser added a team-high 15 points and seven boards, but it wasn’t enough against the host Seahawks.

Sequim held a 13-8 lead after one quarter and a slim 27-26 advantage at halftime before Anacortes — led by the 27 points of Gabby Ronngren — out-scored Sequim 35-17 in the second half.

“We had a solid first half but got out-rebounded and into foul trouble in the second half with Hope Glasser and Jayla Julmist both fouling out,” Sequim coach Linsay Rapelje said.

Kalli Wiker had six points and Melissa Porter chipped in five for Sequim.

A day later, Sequim (4-1 in league play, 7-3 overall) again built an early lead but eventually fell to 3A West Seattle, 76-51.

The Wolves had a 17-14 lead after one quarter and trailed by just five (32-27) at halftime before West Seattle outscored Sequim 21-11 in the third.

Glasser led the team with 15 points while Julmist had 12. Wiker and Jessica Dietzman had nine points apiece.

Grace Sarver paced West Seattle with 21 points and Jasmine Gayles added 20. Kelsey Lenzie had all 11 of her points in the third quarter.

Looking ahead

Sequim was scheduled to play at Port Angeles on Jan. 8 — results were too late for the Jan. 9 Gazette print edition.

The Wolves are at Kingston Jan. 11 before hosting North Mason on Jan. 15. Sequim plays at Klahowya on Jan. 16 — a makeup match-up from a postponed game earlier this season — and is at Bremerton on Jan. 18.
