Going into the District tournament, Shorewood holds the No. 4 seeding behind Wesco division leaders Stanwood and Glacier Peak and behind Ferndale (10-0 Northwest 3A/2A/1A Conference, 16-1), but the Thunderbirds could fall to No. 5 with a loss at Stanwood coupled with a Meadowdale victory at Shorecrest Wednesday. The top four teams play first-round tournament games on their home course.
