Payton Glasser

Payton Glasser is off to a roaring start for the Sequim Wolves basketball squad.

Last year’s Olympic League 2A All-League first-teamer scored 32 in the season opener over Port Townsend, 22 points and 12 rebounds againt North Mason and 30 this weekend against Coupeville, adding nine rebounds.

Glasser, a versatile 6-foot-5 guard/forward, is averaging 28 points and nine rebounds a game so far, helping to lead the red-hot Wolves to a 3-0 start on the season, including 1-0 in league. It should be a barnburner when Glasser and the Wolves visit rival Port Angeles on Wednesday.

Athlete of the Week is brought to you by the sports department at the Peninsula Daily News along with the sponsorship of Swain’s General Store serving Clallam and Jefferson counties since 1957.
