Working Overtime for a Win

(Jan. 18, 2017) - In the last five seconds of the second overtime, with the game on the line, it came down to Highline's Aileen Kay, a 5'3" freshman guard, making a play that decided the outcome. With Highline up by two points with five seconds to go and Grays Harbor in possession of the ball, looking to tie or win the game outright, Kaye forces a turnover, grabbed the loose ball, and bolted upcourt. Fouled with 2.4 seconds left, she calmly converted the free throws and Highline won an intense, frantic, sometimes sloppy, and thoroughly entertaining game over the visiting Grays Harbor Chokers 79-75 (stats). The Thunderbirds were led by Jasmine Hansgen (18 points, 5 rebounds), Anna Cook (17 points, 5 rebounds), and Theyoung Puoy (11 points, 11 rebounds). Grays Harbor was led by Angela Sikora (15 points) and Jaylin Brasher-Norwood (11 points, 7 rebounds).

While Kaye made the crucial steal at the end of the game, it was Highline's Anna Cook, who played a team high 41 minutes, who provided the spark and stability that kept the T-Birds in the game. With both teams struggling in shooting from the field and at the foul line, Cook went 6-12 from the field and was a perfect 5-5 from the foul line. One of the more interesting contrasts in the game was that while Grays Harbor was 8-27 in three point attempts, Highline only shot twice from behind the 3-point arc (missing both) and instead kept pounding the ball inside, resulting in being fouled and outscoring the Chokers 19-11 from the free throw line.

With the win, Highline improves to 2-1 in league play, with an away game at South Puget Sound on Jan. 21 before returning home for two games - Green River on Jan. 25 and Pierce College on Jan. 28.he Thunderbirds open league at Centralia on Jan. 11.

Rocky Start to League Play

(Jan. 18, 2017) With leading scorer and rebound Jamie Orme (18.4 pts., 10.4 rbs) out with a leg injury, Highline scored 20 points under its season average in falling at home to the Grays Harbor Chokers 50-47 (stats). With the loss, the Thunderbirds fall to 7-10 for the season and 1-2 in league play.
While both teams struggled with shooting from the field (Highline 29.5%, Grays Harbor 32.8%), the Chokers did outrebound the T-Birds 48-40 and and hit three more 3-pointers for the margin of victory. Highline was led by Austin Anderson with 12 points, the only Thunderbird scoring in double-figures. Grays Harbor was paced by 16 points from Keeandre Rowland, including 4-7 from behind the 3-point arc.

Highline travels to South Puget Sound for a game on Jan. 21 before returning home for two games - Green River on Jan. 25 and Pierce College on Jan. 28.

Men's Wrestling

#19 Highline vs. #7 Southwestern Oregon (Jan. 7, 2017)

Assistant Coach Bradley Luvaas: 

This weekend we wrestled down in Coos, Bay.  We forfeited at 157, but our guys wrestled better than the first half of the season.  Luis Callen got us on the board at 125 with a solid decision over Ryder Mckee 13 – 7.  This was a good win for Luis.  Returning All-American, Andrew Ramirez, added to the score with an 11-5 decision over Marcus Martin who he has wrestled 3 times this year.  Cole Morrison also added a victory over Cody Greene 5 – 2. 

The team has been struggling a bit at 157 – 174.  We gave up 18 points in those three weights alone.

Mario Luevano was in a close match but was caught on his back twice trying to sit out.  That gave his opponent 8 pts.  A near fall is worth 4 points in college.  I think Mario can beat Webley.  I’m hoping he does it when it counts.  Josh Wessels also looked good at 197 losing a 4 -2 decision to 4th ranked Wyatt Westfall.  The final score was 32 – 9.  Highline will be in action this Sunday for the Boxer Open in Forest Grove, Oregon at 10:00 AM.
