For the third time in the past four years, a Skyline select boys basketball team hoisted a state championship trophy.

The Skyline Silver Select eighth-grade boys basketball team, which was coached by Michael Angelidis, captured the Washington State Middle School Basketball title in the gold division on March 17 at the Spokane Convention Center. Skyline defeated North Creek, 51-29, in the championship game. Skyline finished the 2018-19 season with an overall record of 37-3.

“This has been a special group of young boys. They have been as consistent as any team I have ever coached. They were resilient, they were great teammates and I am thankful I was part of this journey,” Angelidis said. “Aside from their success on the courts, they created a great team bond off of it and relationships that will last for the years to come. Skyline basketball has a bright future.”
