Coupeville will now host Sultan in district opener / Girls basketball

School cancellations the past two days because of weather have required the North Sound Conference and Northwest Conference athletic directors to reformat the 1A District 1 basketball tournament.

The Coupeville High School girls basketball team, the No. 3 seed out of the North Sound Conference, is now scheduled to host Sultan, the No. 5 seed, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, in a loser-out contest.

The original district tournament was double-elimination, but the athletic directors condensed the schedule to ensure it finishes on time for the start of the bi-district tournament Wednesday, Feb. 13.

The AD’s also took into account the forecast for more snow this weekend when trimming the district tournament schedule.

The Coupeville/Sultan winner travels to the loser of King’s (NSC No. 1) and Lynden Christian (NWC No. 2) at 7 p.m. Friday for another elimination game. That winner qualifies for bi-district and will play at 3:45 p.m. Saturday in Mount Vernon for the third and fourth bi-district seeds.

The King’s/Lynden Christian winner plays the winner of Meridian (NWC No. 1) and Cedar Park Christian (NSC No. 2) in the district championship game and for the top two seeds into the bi-district tournament.

The Meridian/CPC loser faces the winner of the loser-out game between Granite Falls (NSC No. 4) and Nooksack Valley (NWC No. 3) on Friday for a bi-district berth.
