Chelsey Ebert Ferndale Jam 2018: Inglemoor Vikings vs Friday Harbor

It is fair to say that when the Friday Harbor girls faced off against the Inglemoor Vikings on Saturday afternoon in Bellingham, they were overmatched.

Inglemoor vs Cashmere: 7th Grade Girls

Bothell Cougars Build Lead in Final Quarter Against Inglemoor Vikings

Bothell vs Inglemoor:  7th Grade Girls Basketball

In what must have been a frustrating game for both teams, the Bothell Cougars and Inglemoor Vikings met between the hoops at Timbercrest Junior High in Woodinville on Saturday afternoon. Perhaps rusty from the winter break, both teams were hampered as much by shaky offense as strong defense from their opponents. The close, low-scoring game was plagued by missed free-throws, missed layups, and missed 3-pointers that would normally have been easy for the players involved, but the balls just weren’t finding the net. It was not for lack of effort, though; the girls played with passion on offense and fiery resolve on defense. Continue reading…
