TROPHY TIME. They may have fallen short of capturing the 4A boys’ state basketball championship, but in reality, the Curtis Vikings (23-5) performance at the 4A Hardwood Classic was absolutely fantastic. The Vikings gave eventual 4A state champion Kentwood all they could handle in their quarterfinal matchup on Thursday, March 2. A split-second moment of indecision was all that kept Curtis from tying up the game at the buzzer as they fell by just two points, 57-55. Curtis would bounce back the following day with a resounding 64-46 win over Enumclaw and the table was now set for a rematch with Federal Way in the fourth-place game on Saturday. The 8 a.m. contest was a tight affair, but Curtis was able to pull away in the end for a 70-62 victory over the two-time defending champions, and the fourth-place trophy was heading to University Place.
