Last spring, North Kitsap’s Henry Baldwin impressed as a freshman, registering six goals and 10 assists for the boys soccer team.
It might be the only time Baldwin plays in high school. Baldwin is now playing for the Sounders Pre-Academy 1998′s team.
Seems like every season now, at least one high school player from the area opts to play for the Sounders. Last year, it was Central Kitsap senior Jordan Kollars, who helped the Cougars reach the state title game the year before.
A Twitter account associated with Issaquah students crossed the line according to police reports and included racist and hate-filled speech against Garfield boys basketball players and cheerleaders.
The Seattle PD is looking into the situation.

State basketball tournaments begin Thursday, and even though no Kitsap County teams made the cut, we know there are some local hoops fans out there still interested in Hardwood Classic info. So here is what’s out there.
Here are the brackets for the boys and girls tournaments, which run Thursday through Saturday. The 4A/3A games are at the Tacoma Dome, the 2A/1A games are at the Yakima SunDome, and the 2B/1B games are at Spokane Arena.
Courtesy of the News Tribune and prep guru Todd Milles (the man who never sleeps because he puts out so much copy), here are capsules for the 4A boys, 4A girls, 3A boys and 3A girls tourneys. Earlier this week, Milles talked to Rainier Beach coach Mike Bethea about the nationally-ranked Vikings’ quest for a three-peat.
The Yakima Herald-Republic covers the 2A/1A tourneys like no one else. Port Angeles’ girls, who won the Olympic League, face Lynden on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. The Roughriders (19-5) beat Burlington-Edison on Saturday to punch their ticket to state.
The Spokesman-Review provides the top B-tournament coverage.
Every year, the Kitsap Sun selects a Super Six team for boys and girls basketball, honoring the top players from around the area. Last year, we decided to select a player of the year for the first time. Olympic’s Quentin Phillips and Ashli Payne were named players of the year in 2013.
This year, there are several deserving nominees on the boys side. We’ve already made our pick, but we’re interested to hear from you. If you had to give a player of the year award to South Kitsap’s Ryley Callaghan, Caulin Bakalarski or Bremerton’s Deonte Dixon, who would you pick? Callaghan and Bakalarski, both All-Narrows first-team picks, helped the Wolves finish second in the Narrows League and reach regionals, while Dixon earned Olympic League MVP honors while leading the Trojans to the Olympic League title and a regional berth.
Let us know what you think.
