Big rally puts Bainbridge softball back into state

The Bainbridge softball team qualified for state for the 10th straight year, beating Ballard 4-3 in nine innings Friday in the Class 3A SeaKing District tournament at the Southwest Athletic Complex in Seattle.

It took a big rally to make it. Bainbridge was down 3-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh. Maddie Loverich’s two-out, two-run triple tied the game.

Kari Perry’s two-out single scored the winning run in the ninth. Sara Colley went the distance, giving up just six hits.

Bainbridge (14-11) took the district’s fifth and final spot to state by beating a Ballard (18-8) team that finished second in the Metro League and swept them in the regular season.

Kingston names Grimm as new football coach

Kingston athletic director Jared Terrible said Thursday that the school has named Alec Grimm as the new football coach.

Grimm accepted the school’s offer to coach the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Terrible said. He’ll replace former coach W. Todd Harder, who resigned after four seasons.

Alec Grimm, a 2011 Bainbridge High graduate, is the son of former Bainbridge football coach Andy Grimm, who coached the Spartans for 18 seasons before leaving his post last fall.

It’s an interesting hire considering former Kingston assistant coach Jeff Rouser is replacing Andy Grimm at Bainbridge.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Harder join Rouser’s staff at Bainbridge or see Andy Grimm join his son’s staff at Kingston.

Bainbridge tabs Rouser as new football coach

Bainbridge High School has hired former Kingston defensive coordinator Jeff Rouser as the Spartans’ new football coach.

Here is the news release sent out by Bainbridge principal Duane Fish regarding Rouser’s hire:

Bainbridge High School (BHS) will usher in a new era in Spartan football when Jeff Rouser takes the reins this spring as head coach. Rouser has spent the past decade moving up the ranks of football from serving as the catalyst for the youth program in Kingston to spending the past four years as the defensive coordinator at Kingston High School (KHS).

“We couldn’t have found a candidate more suited to lead the Spartan football program forward,” Fish said. “Coach Rouser is a perfect match for the Bainbridge community with a driven approach to fundamental football as well as a passion for developing athletes who take the student aspect of their high school experience very seriously.”
