The long wait is over.
Sequim's girls high school summer basketball squad picked up their first win in a couple of years with an overtime win in late June, knocking off Centralia 30-28 at a tournament in Chehalis.
Sequim's girls came back to clobber Overlake 20-7 the next day.
Members of the summer league team, coached by Stephanie Lewis and Evan Still, practice Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings this summer.
The team also is hosting a fundraiser for the Sequim Youth Basketball program at SkyRidge Golf Course (see below).
The summer program, featuring several varsity and junior varsity prep players, aims to help the Wolves stop a two-year losing streak for the high school team when the prep season starts in November.
