ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

BY GERARDO BOLONG
Special to the West Seattle Herald

TACOMA - Ability to adjust propelled the West Seattle Wildcats to a historic 66-54 Sat., March 4, comeback boys basketball victory against the Lincoln Abes who had entered the 2017 WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington/Les Schwab Tires Hardwood Classic tournament unbeaten before being deflated by No. 1 in the nation Nathan Hale in the Fri. semifinals.

With the courageous comeback, the Wildcats claimed the third place state trophy which is the highest all-time finish in school history. In the 1970 state championship AAA tournament which was conducted under a different format, West Seattle was undefeated heading into the final four at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. The Wildcats lost a tight 63-62 decision to Snohomish while Pasco had to reach into overtime to defeat Aberdeen 62-59. Snohomish would then upset Pasco and the Aberdeen Bobcats, led by Washington state player of the year Steve Soike, beat Roger Wong-led West Seattle in the third-fourth game.
