Buc football: Better effort, similar outcome
On Thursday the Bucs traveled to Klahowya and lost, 41-14.
After the Bucs difficult homecoming game, head coach Dan Novick said working on putting forth better effort would be key, and although the score didn’t reflect it Novick wrote in an e-mail the Bucs effort was much better.
“Our kids fought to the finish, and the game was much closer than the score indicated,” he wrote. “I was very proud of the character they showed coming off last week’s game.”
Stats: Lou Hecker, 76 yards on 13 carries, Travis Schriner, 69 yards on 13 carries, Paul Bagala completed nine passes for 106 yards and one touchdown and rushed the ball 13 yards on four carries for one touchdown.

Viking tennis headed into post season
On Friday the Vikings traveled to Port Angles for the Olympic League championships. There was a double elimination doubles tournament and a double elimination singles tournament. Each tournament had two qualifiers for the district tournament in the spring. All of North’s 11 varsity players made the trip and a handful are moving on to the district tournament.
“It was very exciting and I was proud of each of the kids and how well they represented NK,” head coach Jay DeVries wrote in an e-mail.
Conner Gallagher and Jordan Seth placed second in the doubles tournament, and advance to districts.
“They beat a tough Olympic doubles team, who had previously beat them in the tournament, so it was great to see them rebound and beat them when it counted,” DeVries wrote.
No. 1 singles player Zach Fohn will accompany the doubles team to districts.
“Zach played as well as he has this season. He beat Justin Hike, Olympic’s number one, in the championship,” DeVries wrote. “Justin had not lost in the Olympic League all year, so Zach picked a great time to beat him in straight sets no less.”
