South Whidbey’s seventh/eighth-grade boys basketball team cleaned house over the weekend against Anacortes and Everett.

The Junior Falcons, a select basketball team designed to be a feeder program for the high school squad, extended their win streak to four games after winning both games in La Conner.

South Whidbey beat Anacortes 25-14 in the first game, and dropped Everett 40-26 in the second game. The Junior Falcons’ head coach, Erik Jokinen, said South Whidbey beat Everett’s press defense and was led by Blaine Leroy’s 70-percent shooting and nine rebounds and Levi Buck, who made half of his shots.
