South Whidbey’s girls basketball team lost in overtime to Nooksack Valley, 54-45, on Monday night at Erikson Gymnasium in the first round of the 1A District 1 tournament. South Whidbey led for most of the game and led 34-27 entering the fourth quarter. But, following midrange baskets by Falcon juniors Kacie Hanson and Kinsey Eager which pushed South Whidbey ahead by nine, the Pioneers went on a 12-0 run.
For everyone but South Whidbey girls basketball senior Morgan Davis, Monday night’s playoff game will be a new experience.
If ever there was a time for South Whidbey senior guard Chase White to come through for the Falcons, it was Senior Night.
It was chance that led 26-year-old Robbie Bozin to become head coach of the Langley Middle School wrestling team. Bozin, who works in the warehouse at the Freeland Country Store, spotted South Whidbey High School assistant coach Paul Newman wearing Falcon wrestling apparel. Bozin, a former collegiate wrestler and three-time state finalist at Carson High School in Carson City, Nev. in the mid-2000s, expressed his interest in coaching wrestling. As luck would have it, Newman told Bozin that the middle school wrestling program was in need after former coach David Monell stepped away.
