Here is a recap of some of Foster’s more successful winter teams.

Boys basketball

Foster finished the year 13-14 and just one game short of the 2A state basketball tournament.

The Bulldogs won three of four to end the regular season, then stayed hot and won five of six in the playoffs to get to a winner-to-state game against Kingston. Foster lost 54-41, but still went home proud after an excellent postseason run.

Girls basketball

Despite some big injuries, the Bulldogs managed to make the district tournament and come within two games of state.

Foster (9-15) struggled at times while star Sahara Hill missed time with an injury, but turned it around late to make the playoffs. Foster went 1-2 in the district tournament.

Another highlight for the team was a 69-68 overtime win against long-time league leader Kennedy Catholic in December.

Hill had another excellent season, averaging 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 3.7 steals per game. She led the Seamount in rebounding and was second in scoring.

Wrestling

Foster freshman Cale Woyvodich placed fourth at the 2A state wrestling tournament.

Woyvodich won several close matches while working his way through the 106-pound bracket. He topped Othello’s Isaiah Barrera 4-3 in the first round, then beat Sumner’s Travis Filleau 8-6 in the second.

He lost to Gabe Martinez of Quincy, 2-0 in overtime. Then he beat Barrera again 5-3 in the consolation bracket before losing the third-place match 7-2 to Quincy’s Christian Alejandrez.
