Tumwater Pushes Win Streak to Eight After Win Over 3A Capital


The T-Birds just keep on rolling, after another win over 3A Capital Saturday night, the Tumwater boys basketball team has won eight straight heading back into league play next week. 

The Thunderbirds led from start-to-finish over their 3A counterpart, 58-44, on the road in Olympia. Ryan Otton led them with 15 points and seven rebounds, and Conner Hopkins (10 points) and Adam Overbay (10 points) also notched double figure scoring nights. Overbay also finished with a team-high 12 total rebounds for the double-double effort. 

Another well-rounded scoring night, with seven T-Birds on the scoresheet, allowed them to outpace a solid 3A team on the road, who only managed double-digit scoring outings in two quarters, both in the second half. 

Tumwater will put its unbeaten league record on the line against rival W.F. West on Tuesday in Chehalis for its next game.
