The Islanders will begin the district tournament on Thursday, Nov. 3 at West Seattle High School against the winner of the Metro No. 8 and Metro No. 3 game. The match is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

A win in their first game, would move the Islanders forward to the semifinal round which will take place Saturday, Nov. 5 at Sammamish High School at 11 a.m. A loss would move the Islanders into the consolation bracket, making their next game Saturday at Sammamish at 1 p.m.

The top five teams from the district tournament will move forward to the state tournament, which begins Nov. 11 at St. Martin's University in Lacey, Wash.
