South Whidbey’s girls basketball team is 0-2 overall and 0-1 in the Cascade Conference after losses to Bellevue Christian on Dec. 3 and Archbishop Murphy on Dec. 6.
The Falcons, however, are not discouraged. Junior Mackenzee Collins said the Falcons’ defense was the highlight of both games; they were only down by two points against Archbishop Murphy heading into the fourth quarter. South Whidbey lost 45-28.
The Wildcats have traditionally been one of the strongest teams in the league.
“We kind of lost it at the end, but I think that was a really big stride to get there and hold them to that,” Collins said.
South Whidbey plays tonight at 7 p.m. at Coupeville High School.
