Sequim 76, Kingston 45

SEQUIM — The Sequim girls basketball team got huge games from Jolene Vaara, Libby Turella and Gracie Chartraw in dominating Kingston 76-45.

Vaara and Chartraw combined for 15 assists, 14 rebounds and 11 steals, while Turella shot 3-for-6 on her 3-pointers en route to scoring 21 points.

“Jolene filled up the stat line tonight, leading us in scoring with 22 and grabbing eight rebounds, adding seven assists and five steals. One of her best games of the season,” said coach Joclin Julmist.

“Gracie had one of her better all-around games. She chipped in 15 points and had a team high of eight assists and six steals. She did a great job looking for teammates and playing tough defense. Everyone got a chance to play and that’s always fun,” Julmist said. Chartraw also had six rebounds.

Hailey Wagner also had a solid game, shooting a perfect 100 percent from the floor (3-for-3) and pulling down 12 rebounds while starting for an injured Dani Herman.

Forks 67, Chief Leschi 36

FORKS — The Forks girls basketball team wrapped up a perfect league record on a roll, getting 36 points and 13 rebounds from senior Keira Johnson in her final home game and scoring 27 points in the second quarter in a 67-36 rout over Chief Leschi.

With the victory, the Spartans completed their Pacific 2B League season with a 10-0 record (16-5 overall, No. 7 in Ratings Percentage Index). Forks locked up the league championship a couple of weeks ago, but was motivated to keep winning.

“We wanted to be undefeated in league and finish it off,” said coach David Hurn. “We’re very proud of that.”

The Spartans are rewarded by being a No. 1 seed out of the Pacific 2B League and getting a first-round District 4 postseason tournament bye. Forks gets a week off and will play again Tuesday, likely against the winner of Toutle Lake and Chief Leschi.

Hurn said his players are not satisified.

“We still have a lot of work to do. We still have to get better. We’re hungry,” Hurn said.

In addition to Johnson’s big game, the Spartans also got eight points each from Bailey Johnson and Janessa Ramos.

PORT TOWNSEND — The East Jefferson girls basketball team got big games from Penina Vailolo and Kay Botkin in beating Charles Wright 48-35.

The win kept the rivals tied for third place in the Nisqually League at 7-3 (7-7 overall). Cascade Christian is four games over .500 at 9-5, but the Rivals have a two-game lead on them in the loss column.

East Jefferson next plays Annie Wright (11-1, 13-4) on the road at 7 p.m. today.
