SEQUIM — Kalli Wiker connected on four early 3-pointers as Sequim erupted for 40-first quarter points on the way to an 86-63 victory over Neah Bay on Wednesday night.
“I don’t know that I’ve seen that in a high school boys or girls basketball game,” Wolves head coach Linsay Rapelje said of the initial scoring burst which put Sequim up 40-18.
Jayla Julmist had a huge game inside, scoring 15 points, grabbing 17 rebounds with two blocks and two steals for the Wolves.
Julmist was one of four Sequim players who reached double digits in scoring on the night.
Wiker finished with a team-high 19 points, ending the night with five 3-point buckets and four assists.
Hope Glasser had 17 points and four assists, Jessica Dietzman scored nine of her 16 points in the first quarter and Melissa Porter added 10 points, two steals and a block off the bench.
The Wolves (2-0) finished strong at the rim, leading to some physical conditioning for their coaches.
“The Lady Wolves also made six ‘And 1s, [which is] getting fouled, making their shot and making their free throw,” Rapelje said. “This means that coaches have to run a ‘Sweet 8’ [running from sideline-to-sideline] for every one. I will be in shape by the end of practice.”
Laila Greene and Ruth Moss each had 19 points to lead Neah Bay.
Greene hit five 3-pointers while Moss had three.
Cei’J Gagnon added 12 points and Ryana Moss scored eight for the Red Devils (0-1).
“Neah Bay should once again do well this season, and we have some things we need to work on in practice after this game,” Rapelje said. “That being said, overall, it was a fun, up-tempo game.”
