The football team lost 24-39 to the Pittsburg Pirates in the semi-finals of the North Coast Section (NCS) 24-39. The Huskies were only one victory away from competing in the championship game against De La Salle. Washington has not been in the NCS championships since 1978. Overall, the team finished with a 9-4 record.

“The team started slow but after half time realized that they could compete with Pittsburgh. The second half we only got out scored 23-21,” Coach Ken Wittmer said.

The Pirates took a 6-0 lead after three plays on their opening drive. WHS retaliated with a field goal, which was their first score during the first half. The Huskies were down 3-16 in the first half of the match, but they showed improvement in their play during the second half. However, they ultimately lost the game.

Despite their defeat, Wittmer was proud of the season his team had.

“Great season, but then again we knew they were a great group of players and we had high expectations for them,” Wittmer said.

In addition, he said he did not anticipate complete triumph in the NCS championships because of the variables that go into the success of a team. But he said he already knew the team had the potential to get past the first round and to gain success in even later rounds.

The end of the football season means the seniors have played their final game for Washington.

“It is hard to say good-bye to the seniors, but as a coach you know you have another set of new ones to look forward to,” Wittmer said. “Some senior groups are more special than others, and this group is very special because of their overall team commitment and dedication.”

Co-captains and seniors David Ross and Cedric Lousi both qualified to join the NCS all-star game. They are the only players from the Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) to make it in the all-star game this season.

Even with the departure of some key players at the end of the school year, Wittmer sees some special players with the potential to lead the team next year. The players he looks to lead the team next season are juniors Deandre Carter, Casey Jennings, Camron Noorzad and Haniteli Lousi. The Huskies may be losing their key players which led them to a successful season, but things look promising for next season.
