Mount Si boys basketball team ended their season last Saturday, Feb. 15, on the road against Bainbridge Island, falling 62-47 to the Spartans.

The Wildcats came into the match from a win over Liberty two days prior, but fell to a Bainbridge team that dominated on rebounds in the first round of the SeaKing Districts.

The Wildcats ended their season with a 9-11 overall record.

"Our varsity season ended sooner than we all thought it would, but the energy around that team and our program is exactly how we envisioned it from the the start of the season," commented head coach Kyle Clearman on the team's webpage, looking back on his first season.

"'Peak at the right time' was a daily phrase that we really believed in and executed at the end of the year. We came a long way and went through some adversity as every team does, and in the end I just hope these guys learned as much from me as I did from them."

Mount Si graduates senior starters Jack Nelson, Tyler McCreadie and Beau Shain, but can look forward to some strong juniors and sophomores moving up, such as Parker Dumas, JoJo Hillel. Ryan Stewart, Colton Swain and Isaac Benedict, among others.
