BOYS SWIMMING

Bobcats sweep

LONGVIEW — Winning four of the last five events, Aberdeen concluded its dual season by sweeping Mark Morris, 90-83, and R.A. Long, 135-33, Tuesday at the Mark Morris pool.

The Bobcats (5-3 in duals) owed their victory over Mark Morris to their domination of the 100-yard breaststroke. Joseph Bowley and Dillon Rowe went 1-2 in that event, with teammates Stuart Ball and Levi Rose placing fourth and fifth.

Moments earlier, Aberdeen’s Keegan Davison had taken the 100 backstroke and the Cats concluded the meet by winning the 400 free relay.

“We wanted to try some different swims,” Aberdeen coach Keith Lile said. “We took our breaststrokers, loaded them up and had some great success.”

Bowley was a double winner in the breaststroke and 500-yard freestyle. Davison accomplished some some significant time drops in the backstroke and 50 freestyle.

Rowe, competing despite a virus, attained a personal best in the 100 breast.

The Bobcats were without Colton Sundstrom and Colton Dion, who were working on a senior project.

Aberdeen returns to the Mark Morris pool for the Southwest Washington Invitational on Saturday.

BOYS BASKETBALL

T-Birds 73, Bobcats 64

TUMWATER — Once Aberdeen got through Tumwater’s pressure defense, the Bobcats found their offensive groove to get the lead, but the T-Birds took flight at the free-throw line in this Evergreen 2A contest on Tuesday.

Veek Cheema led all scorers with 20 points and six assists for AHS (1-7, 5-11) and Collin Nord and Zack Ball added 13 points each. Nord finished with a double-double, pulling down 10 rebounds.

“We didn’t get the ball to our big men inside enough in the fourth quarter,” AHS head coach Leonard Barnes said. “They went to the free-throw line continuously. We played really well. We had the lead in the fourth quarter, but just couldn’t hold it.”

Ball knocked home a field goal with 2:16 left for a 61-60 AHS lead. Cole Hastie gave Tumwater the lead back with a basket, then Aberdeen had two chances for the lead before the T-Birds (3-6, 5-11) got the rebound.

Cheema hit Aberdeen’s final basket of the night, a 3-pointer with 30 seconds left, but only reduced the deficit to 67-64. The Bobcats were forced to foul for the remainder of the contest.

Ashton Williamson and Reilly Fairchild were cited for their work off the bench in the first half.

On Thursday, Aberdeen visits Chehalis.

Vikings 54, Navigators 32

LACEY — Willapa Valley dominated on the boards and used pressure defense to top Northwest Christian in Pacific League play on Tuesday at Lacey.

Anthony Sagen led the Vikings with 19 points, five steals and three assists. Drew Pearson grabbed 10 rebounds to go with his nine points.

Matt Konigsberger added 10 points for the Vikings (9-1, 14-4).

Viking Randy Heckard was out due to illness.

The Vikings outrebounded the Navigators 36-26. The Navigators were held to single digits in every quarter and turned the ball over 26 times.

“It was not pretty on offense and we had trouble shooting close in,” said Vikings coach John Peterson. “We played solid defense for the win. We traditionally have trouble on the Navigators’ home court.”

Peterson commended Sagen for a high-energy game and Pearson for his rebounding and offensive play.

The Vikings will host South Bend on Friday.

RAYMOND — Five players scored in double figures as Raymond bounced Naselle in Pacific League play Tuesday at Raymond.

“We tried to go back to basics and worked on moving the ball around and playing as a team,” said Raymond coach Mike Tully, whose team was coming off an upset loss at North Beach on Saturday. “Five guys in double figures showed we were able to do that.”

Ratsavongsy also had six rebounds and five steals, while James Hamilton pulled down six rebounds.

Naselle’s Sam Scrabeck, who nailed five 3-pointers, led all scorers with 21 points.

Miles Davis scored 21 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out four assists for the Tribe (1-9, 1-17).

The Indians were without Dalyn Ogilvie due to a hip injury.

“We were not ready to go and did not get off to a good start,” said SB head coach Tom Betrozoff. “The difference in the first quarter was the difference in the game.”

Eagles 69, Loggers 54

KELSO — A battle of leading scorers — Wishkah’s Brady Anderson and Three Rivers Christian’s Josh Caddel — took center stage in this non-league contest on Tuesday night.

The Loggers got 22 points, six rebounds and five steals from Anderson, but Caddel led all scorers with 28 points for the Eagles. In the first meeting of the season, Caddel was held to just nine points in the Loggers’ 37-34 win at Wishkah.

“It was two good basketball players going after each other,” Wishkah head coach Matt Ferrier said. “We played very well in the first half. We scored enough to win, but we gave up too many points. Our discipline needs to get better down the stretch. That’s the second time this week we had the lead at halftime and didn’t execute in the second half. We need to put 32 minutes together.”

Gavin Baltzell added nine points and six assists for the Loggers (11-4).

On Friday, Wishkah stays home to take on Lake Quinault.
