PORT ANGELES – Peninsula College launched its Athletics Hall of Fame last year and celebrated the 1970 State Champion basketball team.
The North Olympic Peninsula has had a love affair with the Pirates ever since – and second year head coach Mitch Freeman says his 2014-15 team is one this community will embrace.
“We have a team that the community would love to support,” Freeman said. “I hope you can come out and watch Pirate Basketball.”
The Peninsula men went 12-11 and narrowly missed the playoffs in Freeman’s first season at the Pirate helm. This year’s team has more height, more depth and strong chemistry.
“We are young team with only five guys who have played in a college game, but we have size and depth at each position that will allow us to be a competitive basketball team,” Freeman said. “We are very excited and anxious to get the season started.”
The Pirates open their non-conference schedule Friday, Nov. 21, at Highline, a team that went 23-8 last year, good for third place in the West Division.
Come support your local high schools as they gear up for their upcoming seasons. Admission is FREE!
Peninsula College will be hosting a fall basketball league for the local high schools in the area. Fall leagues are a great tool that a lot of high school programs use to get their teams prepared for the season ahead. We’re excited to connect with the local area teams to kick off another exciting basketball season here on the Olympic Peninsula.
Saturdays, Oct 25th & Nov 1st
