The Federal Way Eagles would win the championship after defeating the Wilson Rams, and West Seattle would take 3rd place honors over the Puyallup Vikings. Each team featured strong guard play from a combination of ranked and unranked athletes who showed fans why their teams were able to go deep into the tournament. Here’s a look at five athletes who made an impact at the guard position.
