PREP SPORTS: Sequim cruises to win over Peninsula High

SEQUIM — Sequim senior Nick Camporini let the game come to him Wednesday night. He was rewarded handsomely.

So, too, was the Sequim boys basketball team.

Camporini torched the Class 3A Peninsula Seahawks for 25 points as the 2A Wolves jumped out to an early lead and cruised from there for a 63-48 victory.

The win marked the second time this season Sequim had knocked off a 3A nonleague opponent, the other time coming at Bainbridge in the Wolves’ season opener last week.

In that game, the Wolves rallied in the second half to win 64-59.

This time around, however, Sequim jumped all over its former Olympic League rivals from the start, building a 33-16 halftime lead that was never challenged.

Camporini led the Wolves (1-1 in league, 3-1 overall) in scoring for the second time this season with his game-high 25 points.

“He shot the ball well form outside,” Sequim head coach Greg Glasser said of Camporini. “He was actually really patient about getting those shots, too.

“He took them when they came.”

Gabe Carter added four points, eight assists and eight rebounds, while Corbin Webb had 13 points for the Wolves.

“The guys know on any night anybody can go off,” Glasser said. “You just never know who it’s going to be.”

Sequim hosts North Mason on Friday night when it resumes Olympic League play.
