The season began similar to years past in the Nisqually League,
Sequim regulating over the competition.
Taking the Nisqually League Championship, Sequim headed off to
Districts with an eighth place seed.
However, the team proved that they were a force to be reckoned
with when they placed third at Districts.
Defeating Highline, Fife, and Kennedy for third place, Sequim
secured a berth to the state tournament at the Yakima Sundome.
3A State Tournament involved the top sixteen 3A teams in the state.
In an unprecedented team effort, Sequim placed second during pool
play, allowing them to enter tournament play the next day. In an intense game versus Bishop Blanchet, Sequim came from
behind, closing a ten point deficit and winning the first game of the
match in bracket play. Unfortunately,
they could not quite capitalize on their momentum and lost the second
game 16-14 and the final game to end the match.
The next day Sequim faced Mark Morris, losing, only to face
Selah, the hometown favorite. The
game with Selah served as the final game for the nine seniors’ high
school careers. Sequim won
the first game only to lack the final momentum to earn game point in the
second game as Selah went on to win the match.
Despite a disappointing loss, Sequim secured themselves eighth
place in the state out of over seventy teams.
Not only did this team accomplish a top eight finish, something
that has not happened the twelve years that head coach Jennie Webber has
coached, but also earned the distinction of academic state champions
with an accumulative GPA of 3.8.
The end of the season could not have had a much sweeter outcome. This team of girls showed dedication in achieving their goals
while creating numerous memories. With
the support of wonderful fans, this season serves as one for the record
