League leaders stop South Whidbey / Girls basketball

The schedulers didn’t do the South Whidbey High School girls basketball team any favors.

The Falcons, winless in North Sound Conference play, had to close out the season at first-place King’s, unbeaten in league action, Friday, Feb. 1.

The result: Knights 85, Falcons 19.

King’s led 30-1 after the first quarter, 62-4 at halftime and 76-14 heading into the final period.

South Whidbey (0-10, 2-18) finally got its offense going in the third quarter when it scored 10 points — 6 from Kayla Knauer and 4 from Arianna Briggs.

Knauer led the Falcons in the game with 8, Briggs finished with 6, Sammi Daly 3 and Ella Wood 2,

Nine Knights scored at least 9 points.

King’s (10-0, 16-4), the class of the conference, got even better as the season progressed, according to South Whidbey coach Jeff Hanson.

“King’s improved a lot in the last few weeks,” he said. “We were pretty short-handed.

“(It was a) tough year, but (I am) proud we never quit playing hard.”
