EAGLES FROM PAGE 9 state last year, coming away with a couple of placers and Williams thinks that his boys have the ability to achieve the same, if not improve. “If we can just improve on what we did last year,”
Williams said. “Having five guys or more go to state will be progress. We had success last year — with a little bit of luck we could have done a little better.” Also returning will be seniors Matt Badgley and Hunter Amundson, who wrestled at 145 and 125, respectively.
While seniors and freshmen highlight the preseason discussion about the Eagles, Williams also expects a lot out of his large junior class. “A couple of my juniors can step up and when the freshmen start rolling, we’ll be on our way,” Williams said. A few of the juniors, most notably Riley Cobb and Blake McPherson, will be nursing injuries at the beginning of the season, but Shawn Berg and Jesse Driscoll could make a difference.

COUGARS FROM PAGE 9 possessions alive. “We work our tails off. I mean, these guys get after it,” said Hart. “That’s something that’s going to be a big part of our team and some guys like Dillan Knott did a great job on the glass.” Meanwhile, Haslom took care of the Cougars on offense, scoring 20 points despite being in foul trouble that limited his playing time near halftime. “We told Tre to be aggressive tonight and that’s what he did,” said Hart. “And you’ve got to hand it to
him, he showed a lot of leadership out there. Last year he was a little hesitant to take on that role, but it looks like he’s grown into it.” A run of Bellingham turnovers helped Lakewood earn the largest lead of the game, with a 27-18 advantage midway through the third quarter, but Bellingham charged back with a 15-3 run over the next eight minutes to retake the lead, 35-30. Lakewood scored five straight to tie the score at 35-35 with less than three minutes remaining, but missed a few shots down the stretch to let the game
slip away as time ran out. Lakewood outrebounded Bellingham 45-30, but 26 turnovers are what did the young Cougars. Junior guard Caleb Graves finished the game with six points and nine rebounds.
