JOYCE. — The Loggers celebrated senior night with a big win over the Bears.

“We were able to play all of our bench, it was senior night and our seniors got a good send-off, ” coach Chris Ferrier said. “Chief Kitsap is still in the rebuilding process and they are hard working guys.

“We were able to score off transition and defense for the majority of the ballgame.

Ferrier described the play of his senior class.

“Lukas Love had a huge game offensively scoring 32 in about 10 minutes of playing time,” Ferrier said.

“Dom Sprague had another nice game shooting the ball, also in about 10 minutes of playing time.

“Peyton Watson had a nice senior night game defensively and rebounding, he’s been one of our unsung guys, doesn’t score a lot of points, but has really blossomed into a reliable glue guy for our team.

“Another senior Cole Grooms, doesn’t get to play a lot, but he got a lot of minutes and provided good physical defense and we might have found something to help him get a few more minutes from here on out.

“Conner Bauers was his normal steadying leader self. It was a good all around effort.”
