TACOMA — Port Angeles graduate Grayson Peet is nearing the end of his senior college basketball season with Pacific Lutheran University.
Peet was a multi-sport star for the Roughriders, excelling as a guard on the basketball court. He graduated in 2017.
Peet knocked down two 3-point baskets in his final home game as a Lute, a 98-82 win over archrival Puget Sound.

Peet and the Lutes will wrap up their abbreviated season with contests at Whitman this weekend and Whitworth next weekend.
