La Conner Girls vs. Auburn Adventist For District Championship La Conner Boys vs. Darrington, Winner Plays Monday, Loser out

by SkagitRadio.com on Saturday, February 16, 2019

SEDRO-WOOLLEY, WA – One of tonight’s best high school basketball matchups in the state will not only be for the Northwest 2B District Championship, but the winner of the battle between the La Conner Lady Braves and the Auburn Adventist Academy Falcons will also likely secure an automatic trip to the State 2B Tournament in Spokane, while the La Conner boys will be looking to keep their hopes of a trip to the State 2B Tournament alive tonight when they face Darrington in the consolation bracket, with both games at Sedro-Woolley High School.

We invite you to listen to tonight’s live webcasts here at “THE HOME of the La Conner Braves and Lady Braves” SkagitRadio.com, and also at our recently acquired internet domains: LaConnerBraves.com, LaConnerLadyBraves.com, and LaConnerSports.com.

Despite their decisive 61-34 victory over Orcas last night, with an 18-3 season record and undefeated against Class 2B opponents (the three losses were to Class 1A and 2A teams), La Conner actually dropped from third to fourth overnight in the W.I.A.A.’s State Class 2B RPI rankings. The Lady Braves have won 16 of their last 17 games, with the lone loss coming eight games ago when they battled back from a double-digit halftime deficit to nearly upset Annie Wright Academy before falling 77-75 to the 5th-ranked Class 1A team in the state.

Auburn Adventist Academy defeated Friday Harbor 48-42 last night in Auburn to raise their season record to 18-0, and the Falcons are seventh in today’s W.I.A.A. State 2B RPI rankings.

Presented by THE SWINOMISH TRIBE and SKAGIT ROOFING, the girls webcast will start at 5:45 p.m. with the Skagit Roofing Countdown to Tip-off , which will include the Leaded Coffee Company Starting Lineups prior to the 6 p.m. tip-off.

Along with THE SWINOMISH TRIBE and SKAGIT ROOFING, our webcasts of La Conner High School basketball are also supported by these other GREAT businesses, including (alphabetically); The Anacortes Marathon Petroleum Refinery, Angie’s Bail Bonds, CONWAY FEED, Jim Stransky at Remax Territory, JNR Paving, Joe’s Towing, La Conner Hair Design, Pacific Blanket Trading Post, Leaded Coffee Company,Peoples Bank, PIONEER POTATOES, Skagit’s Own Fish Market, and Skagit Shooting Range,

Tonight’s webcasts will feature former La Conner Braves assistant coach and youth coach Dustin Swanson adding analysis and commentary to Matt Koenig’s play-by-play. Swanson and veteran play-by-play announcer John Fasso will be making the trip to webcast games from Spokane if the Lady Braves reach their goal of returning to the state tournament. They will again be the only Skagit County broadcasters at the State 2B Tournament, as the Mount Vernon radio stations hire freelance announcers from the Spokane area, who have never seen La Conner play, to broadcast the games, something they don’t mention to their advertisers or listeners.

The Anacortes Marathon Petroleum Refinery “High Energy Player of the Game”, a feature of our webcasts throughout the year, will be announced during the Anacortes Marathon Petroleum Refinery Post-game Shows.
