Opportunity knocks for Washougal

Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Once again, the Washougal High School boys basketball team faces the consolation finals crossroad.
A win tonight against their nemesis Hockinson sends the Panthers to the state tournament, but a loss ends the season. For the eight Washougal seniors who endured heartbreak after losing in a similar situation to North Thurston last season, it's now or never. The game starts at 7 p.m., at Evergreen High School, 14300 N.E. 18th St., in Vancouver.
"Twenty miles away at Evergreen, the atmosphere is going to be great," said senior guard Michael McElroy. "It's going to be a battle to see who has the loudest fans and who is the better team."
"We want to finish what we started last year," added senior forward Aaron Deister.
