BOYS BASKETBALL

Highclimbers 76, Grizzlies 66

SHELTON — Hoquiam went cold from the field in overtime as Shelton chopped won the Grizzlies in a non-league game on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies (5-4) led 56-50 with four minutes to go when a technical foul was called on a Hoquiam player. Shelton hit one of the two free throws, scored on the possession and started a 12 to 1 run. However, the Grizzlies still had some fight left. Hoquiam’s Jack Adams III and Zach Spradlin hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the Grizzlies up, yet regulation ended with the two teams tied 64-64.

In the overtime, Hoquiam hit just one of its nine shots from the field, while the Highclimbers missed just one shot in the final five minutes.

“It came down to a lot of calls tonight,” Hoquiam coach Curtis Eccles said. “It seemed like a lot of those calls were against us and we picked up a technical foul that didn’t help. The key was their ability to hit shots. They were able to dribble drive and we lacked the defense we needed. You have to give them credit they hit shots at the end.”

Adams led the Grizzlies with 28 points, while Jace Varner added 11 points and 10 rebounds. Spradlin finished with 12 points and Anthony Nash pulled down 10 rebounds.

Gulls 61, Wildcats 36

WESTPORT — Cashing in heavily on Ocosta turnovers, Raymond thumped the Wildcats in a Pacific League game Wednesday at Westport.

Kason Koski scored 19 points, while Devine Souvannavanh added 15 and Luke Hamilton 12 for the Seagulls (4-1, 6-1).

Ocosta coach Jason Quinby said his team’s half-court defense demonstrated improvement in this one, but “probably 20 of their points were directly related to turnovers…Raymond played a 2-3 zone and we had way too much stagnancy on offense.”

“I thought we came in with a good defensive game plan and our defensive effort as far as finishing possessions was good,” Raymond coach Derek Rask said.

Koski was also cited for his floor leadership.

Kobe Beck topped Ocosta with eight points, while Paul Bjornsgard grabbed 12 rebounds for the Wildcats (2-4, 4-5). Joe Wardlow and Richard Dueber were credited with fine reserve performances. Drake Mitby, the lone Ocosta senior, was sidelined in the first quarter due to injury.

On Dec. 29, Raymond will face Onalaska on the opening day of its holiday tournament and Ocosta visits Mossyrock.

Navigators 61, Hyaks 43

OYEHUT — Freshman Noah Phillips scored 28 points as Northwest Christian downed North Beach in a Pacific League contest Wednesday at Oyehut.

Phillips did much of his damage on drives. The Hyaks (1-5, 1-7) were hampered by turnovers.

“Too many turnovers and we couldn’t stop Phillips,” North Beach coach Larry Moore said.

Tim Johnson had 12 points and nine rebounds for North Beach. Teammate Diego Gonzalez blocked five shots.

The Hyaks will host their own tournament Dec. 29-30, opening against Taholah.

Moore also had six assists for the Hyaks (3-3, 5-3). Northwest Christian only suited only five players.

“For four quarters, that was one of our stronger defensive efforts,” North Beach coach Larry Moore said. “We did a good job of taking care of the ball and that was definitely our best game in sharing the wealth (in scoring).”

The Hyaks are scheduled to face Taholah on Dec. 29 in their Holiday With the Hyaks tournament.

BOYS SWIMMING

Bears 113, Bobcats 62

At the YMCA of Grays Harbor, Aberdeen grabbed five event wins, four of them by individuals, to keep pace with Class 4A Olympia before falling in this non-league dual meet on Wednesday afternoon.

Senior Robby Lewis won two events — the 200-yard individual medley and the 100 butterfly — with sophomore Conner Gates winning the 200 freestyle and Kai Kawashima winning at diving.

Gates and Lewis, respectively, were the final two legs in the winning 400 freestyle relay to finish the meet. Both Gates and Lewis, with the senior pulling away in the final 40 yards, erased a large lead by Olympia’s main relay team.

“The boys held their own against a 4A school and we learned a lot about what we need to focus on going into the holiday break,” AHS head coach Angie Durr said.

Gates was cited for his win in the 200 free in a district-qualifying time, along with Anthony Churlin for his time drop in the 50 freestyle and Trevor Mullin for his district-qualifying time in the 100 breast.

On Jan. 10, Aberdeen will return to the pool with a road dual meet at River Ridge.
