Peninsula got a big win over a struggling (winless) Olympic squad in Bremerton on May 12, routing the Rangers 63-30.
PC held their hosts to just nine first-half points en route to the big win.
Tasiah Little led four Pirates in double figures with 16 points, while Tayvia Cabatbat, Tatianna Kamae and Keeli-Jade Smith had 10 points each.
Daisy Owens had six points and a team-high 12 rebounds while Sequim High grad Hope Glasser added eight rebounds and a team-leading three steals.

Glasser paced the squad with a solid all-around effort with nine points, 13 rebounds and five assists, and Smith added a team-high 15 points off the bench. But Bellevue, led by Mo Bungay’s 17 points, out-scored the Pirates 10-5 in the extra frame. Bungay had a pair of three-pointers in overtime to seal the win.
