Islander 8 boys win Eastside Travel League tournament
The Mercer Island Eastside Travel League (ETL) 8 team took home the ETL tournament championship last weekend, winning the ETL playoff tournament Sunday, March 2 at Lake Washington High School.
MI ETL 8 finished third in league play and was the third seed going into the playoffs, defeating fifth-seeded Bothell to face second-seeded Issaquah in the second round of play. An overtime win against Issaquah sent the Islanders to the finals, where they beat top seed Eastside Catholic 67-61 to become ETL tournament champs. MI ETL 8 is coached by Brock Maybee and assistant coach Patrick Dunlop, and includes Ian Renkes, Ethan Eason, Alex Platou, Matt Bouissoneault, Greg Fuchs, Robert Weaver, Clayton Elwell, Parker Simpson, Matt Hershkowitz, Griffin Emanuels, Giovanni Rocha and Reid Martinez.
This is the second time ETL 8 struck tournament gold this season under Maybee and Dunlop. ETL 8 also won the MLK Hoopfest Gold Division back in January.
