Softball: Better weather means more action on the diamondsApril 15th, 2013 by Annette Griffus
As per usual in April, there hasn’t been much softball the last week due to the rainy weather.
But that trend seems to have changed for this week as the weather is supposed to clear and be nice.
And that means softball. So here’s a breakdown of this week’s games with some meaning.
Monday—The top four teams in the Olympic League take on each other and depending on the outcomes, there could be some shuffling in the standings. Fourth-place Kingston (5-2) travels to league-leader Sequim (7-0), while second-place Port Angeles heads to Olympic (6-2) to face the third-place Trojans. All games are at 4 p.m.
Wednesday—A mid-week showdown between first-place Holy Names (8-0) and second-place Bainbridge (6-0) should be a good one as these rivals meet in Metro League Mountain Division play. These two teams usually meet to decide the ML title and do battle in SeaKing District play as well. If you’re anywhere near the island, I’d suggest catching this game to see two solid programs going head-to-head. The game starts at 4 p.m. at BHS.
In the Narrows League, the second meeting between the two 4A schools, Central Kitsap (2-3) and South Kitsap (4-0) will be at Linder Field in Silverdale. SK won the last meeting as former CK alum and current SK coach Jessica Cabato beat mentor Bruce Welling’s Cougars.
Friday—It looks like the rains might return, but if it holds off you’ll see a repeat battle between Holy Names and Bainbridge, this time at Lower Woodland Park in Seattle. Closer to home an inter-district rivalry game between North Kitsap (3-4) and Kingston is set for 4 p.m.
