Capital’s appeal has CK thinking of its ownJanuary 9th, 2014 by nathan joyce
The Narrows League isn’t quite set yet.
The 4A division seemed set with South Kitsap, Bellarmine, Stadium, Gig Harbor, Olympia, Yelm and Timberline taking Central Kitsap’s place.
The 3A division is still up in the air.
Central Kitsap moved to 3A to be in an eight-team division. Lincoln, Wilson, Foss, North Thurston, Shelton and Mount Tahoma are in, but the eighth member, Capital, isn’t.
Capital turned out to be the smallest Class 3A team in the state, and they are asking the WIAA for a recount (essentially an appeal), reports the Olympian’s Meg Wochnick. She also is reporting the Narrows League is asking for Capital to say what it wants to do by Tuesday.
Capital has been a member of the Evergreen Conference in recent years.
All this is making Central Kitsap thinking about their own appeal.
“I’m working on the appeal right now,” Central Kitsap athletic director Bill Baxter said Thursday.
If CK can’t play in an eight-team 3A league, they’d rather play in the 4A division.
Baxter is weighing whether CK will appeal. If Capital, which has also talked to the South Puget Sound League about membership, isn’t in the Narrows, Baxter will definitely appeal.
The appeal deadline is Jan. 17.
