South Whidbey will now host Granite Falls in district opener / Boys basketball

School cancellations the past two days because of weather have required the North Sound Conference and Northwest Conference athletic directors to reformat the 1A District 1 basketball tournament.

The South Whidbey High School boys basketball team, the No. 3 seed out of the North Sound Conference, is now scheduled to host Granite Falls, the No. 5 seed, at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, in a loser-out contest.

The original district tournament was double-elimination, but the athletic directors condensed the schedule to ensure it finishes on time for the start of the bi-district tournament Wednesday, Feb. 13.

The AD’s also took into account the forecast for more snow this weekend when trimming the district tournament schedule.

The South Whidbey/Granite Falls winner travels to the loser of King’s (NSC No. 1) and Meridian (NWC No. 2) at 7 p.m. on Thursday in another elimination game. That winner qualifies for bi-district and will play 2 p.m. Saturday in Mount Vernon to determine the third and fourth seeds for bi-district.

The King’s/Meridian winner plays the winner of Lynden Christian (NWC No. 1) and Cedar Park Christian (NSC No.2) in the district championship game and for the top twp seeds into the bi-district tournament.

The Lynden Christian/CPC loser faces the winner of the loser-out game between Sultan (NSC No. 4) and Nooksack Valley (NWC No. 3) Thursday for a bi-district berth.
