Sports: Five seniors return to Forks girls basketball team

FORKS — First-year head coach Todd Fraker has five seniors back on a Forks High School girls basketball team that made the Southwest District 2A Tournament each of the past two seasons.

“We’re taking that as a positive,” Fraker said last week.

He takes over for Mike Price, who was with the program seven seasons before stepping aside for family reasons.

Both recent district trips came despite 5-10 records in the Southwest Washington League. Fraker would like to turn that around this year.

“Athletically, we’re as good as anybody in the league,” he said.
