It was a day when Woodinville’s vaunted run-n-gun offense never got on track. It was a day when point guard Regan Schenck didn’t look her usual forceful self. It was a day when Newport fans were twice as loud as Woodinville’s.
The above might sound like a recipe for a Newport victory. But that wasn’t the case. By hook or by crook, Woodinville was going to get this win.
Paced by the dominant inside play of Madison Lundquist and outside shooting of Alena Coomar, the Falcons cruised to a 52-34 win over Newport. It was the second round of the Kingco 4A Tourney. Woodinville (18-3) moved on to play Eastlake this Thursday for the Kingco Championship.
Woodinville’s biggest District team in years arrived at Mercer Island’s Mary Wayte Pool. The competitions ran last Friday and Saturday evenings. And by Saturday night, there were performances worth celebrating.
Seniors Five Heck and Jack Sell finished third and fifth respectively, in the diving competition. Sophomore Jeffrey Numrych, who qualified for State the week before, finished fourth in the 50 Freestyle. The Falcons 200 medley relay team finished seventh, while the 200 freestyle relay team finished eighth.
The Falcons sent seven swimmers and two divers to Districts. As of this writing, Numrych was the lone Falcon guaranteed a spot at State. But there was the possibility for more, depending on the results from other districts on Sunday February 11.
