For everyone but South Whidbey girls basketball senior Morgan Davis, Monday night’s playoff game will be a new experience.

For everyone but South Whidbey girls basketball senior Morgan Davis, Monday night’s playoff game will be a new experience.

The Falcons will host Nooksack Valley at 7 p.m. Monday night at Erikson Gymnasium in the first round of the 1A District 1 tournament.

South Whidbey earned the second seed in the tournament after finishing the regular season 8-10 overall and 6-7 in the Cascade Conference. Nooksack Valley is 12-8 overall and 6-5 in the Northwest Conference.

Davis was a freshman the last time the Falcons advanced to the postseason.

“Now as one of the older girls on the team, it’s going to be interesting seeing us all go to districts not having been in that position,” Davis said.

Though Davis and sophomore Kolby Heggenes were disappointed in the team’s 46-32 Senior Night loss to Lakewood on Feb. 2, the Falcons bounced back with a 56-28 win over Granite Falls on Feb. 4.
