Page B-2 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014 FLY ON THE SIDEUNE Athletes represent county well in postseason our Mason County teams ad- vanced to the postseason this winter and all of those athletes deserve congratulations. The Mary M. Knight girls' basketball team won the 1B Southwest District IV champion- ship for the first time in school history. The Lady Owls de- feated Taholah 65-62 in overtime and it was probably the most ex- By EMILY citing high school bas- HANSON ketball game I've seen. The team played well and kept its com- posure. After winning the championship, even though the Lady Owls were excited to make school history, they were gra- cious winners. From Shelton, the boys' swim team competed at the 3A WIAA State Swim- ming and Diving Championship. There, junior Harrison MacAlevy set two school records and finished fourth in the 50- yard freestyle. The Highclimbers also dropped time in the 200-yard medley relay and the 200-yard freestyle relay. For the first time in school history, four divers competed at the champion- ship. Although the highest finish for a Shelton diver was sophomore Troy Krumpols taking 10th, co-head coach Rob Phelan said the boys dove well. I was impressed with their skills, and not just because I can't swim. Finally, both the Shelton and North Mason wrestling teams sent athletes to Mat Classic XXVI. Although none of the seven wrestlers made it to the second day of the state tournament, I thought they all put forth a lot of effort to repre- sent their schools well. Winter sports are now concluded for all Mason County teams except the Lady Owls. They advance to the WIAA's 1B Hard- wood Classic with regionals at 4 p.m. Saturday at Tumwater High School. I want to encourage all Mason County basketball fans to show up to support the Lady Owls as they face Tulalip Heritage. Mary M. Knight is the small- est high school in the county, but these girls have shown they play with as much heart as any other team in the county. I think they deserve to know more fans besides those who reside in the Matlock area support them. SATURDAY Shelton powerlifUng at 8 a.m. at North Beach Tour- nament in Ocean Shores.
