Cascade Christian earned the Nisqually League’s number 2 seed in the boys high school basketball 1A tri-district playoffs by beating Eatonville 52-39 Friday. Eatonville will enter the playoffs next week as the third-seeded team from the Nisqually.
Seeding was at stake when the teams met on a neutral court at Orting High.

They each beat the other once in overtime during the regular season – Cascade Christian winning 52-49 in December and Eatonville prevailing 66-65 in January.
