Athletics Update - Basketball Play-offs 2019

Chad Pohlman, Athletics Director

Hello Grizzlies Fans!

I hope you are all surviving Snowmageddon 2019! We have made quite a few changes to the basketball schedule as we try to wrap up the regular season and get ready for some play-off basketball! With more snow in the forecast, be sure to watch the school website and follow Bear Creek Athletics on Instagram @BCGrizzlySports and on Twitter @BCGrizzlySports to stay up-to-date on upcoming game times or last-minute weather-related schedule changes.

Thanks for coming out to support the Grizzlies at our Strong Against Cancer games last week. Here are a few photos from the event (of hundreds on Vidigami!):

Final League Games
It has been challenging, but we are finally set to play our final regular season games of the season today, Thursday, February 7 at Overlake. JV and JV-C boys will both tip off at 4:00 p.m. Varsity girls play at 5:30 p.m., and varsity boys play at 7:00 p.m. There will be no rooter bus for this away game, so find a ride and be safe! Let’s pack the Owls’ gym and root on our Grizzlies!

Play-off Basketball
The boys have secured a league play-off game regardless of the outcome of today’s match-up. As of today, the plan is for the Emerald City League to host its play-off games at Seattle Academy on Monday, February 11. We will have more information regarding game time after tonight’s game. We plan to send an Upper School rooter bus to this play-off game. More information to come!

Later next week, the Bi-District tournament begins. If the Grizzlies are fortunate enough to advance, we’ll keep everyone apprised of the dates and times as soon as we know them.

Spring Sports Registration
If you have not done so yet, please register your child for a Middle School (grades 6-8) or Upper School (grades 9-12) spring sport. The first day of Upper School spring sports practice is Monday, February 25 (after Mid-Winter Break), and Middle School spring sports begin on Monday, March 4.

Register for Spring Sports

Bear Creek Athletics Banquet
On Friday, April 26, we will honor all 2018-2019 Upper School athletes and teams at our eleventh annual Bear Creek Athletics Banquet. This is a really fun night for our athletes and their families; look for an invitation in your email in early March. For now, please mark your calendars and plan to attend this special dinner. Also, if your Upper School student-athlete participated in a WIAA high school sport not offered at Bear Creek (e.g. swimming, football, wrestling, softball, etc.), please contact me. We would like to recognize these student-athletes at the banquet.

Go Grizzlies!
