Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 11

The Highline High Pirates Boys Basketball team is 6-5 for the season.

They lost two close games by one point to Hazen and Seattle Christian, but they won in overtime against Tyee on Jan. 20, 2016. They were behind most of the game. In the fourth quarter they rallied and took the lead 49-47 with 18 seconds left. A Pirate foul with 5.8 seconds left let Tyee tie the game.

In overtime, the lead went back and forth before the Pirates won the game on free throws. The final score was 63-56.

There are three games left for the season. Wednesday, Jan. 27, against the Wolverines at Evergreen at 7 p.m. The last game of the season is against Lindbergh on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at Highline at 7 pm.
