Bainbridge soccer player Economy heating up

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

If Will Economy is the engine that makes Bainbridge’s boys soccer team go, he’s running smooth through four games.

Economy, who led the Spartans in scoring as a junior, bagged a hat trick Tuesday against Stadium in Bainbridge’s first game following spring break. With the 3-0 win, Bainbridge improved to 3-1 with a game against Blanchet on Thursday. Blanchet handed Bainbridge a 3-2 loss on March 27.

After facing Central Kitsap on Saturday, the Spartans enter the heart of their Metro League schedule.

Economy now has seven goals and a pair of assists through four games. First-year Bainbridge coach Ian McCallum said he isn’t sure if Economy plans to play in college. He said his senior is looking at some pretty strong academic schools, including Princeton.

Asked if Economy could play at the D-I level, McCallum believes he could.

“One of the most skillful players I’ve worked with,” McCallum said.

Bainbridge soccer No. 7 in regional rankings

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Bainbridge’s boys soccer team debuted at No. 7 as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America published its regional rankings this week.

The Spartans, who won a state title in 2012, improved to 2-0 on Tuesday with a 7-0 victory over O’Dea in the team’s Metro League opener.

Softball: Predicting the Olympic League season

Friday, March 14th, 2014

The 2014 softball season officially began Thursday with just a couple games and will be full steam ahead next week.

You can check out our season preview here and the team-by-team capsules here.

In the meantime, I thought I’d try my hand at pre-season predictions so here it goes;

1, Kingston: Based on what they have on paper the Buccaneers look strong on all fronts and are hungry after missing out on making the state tournament last year.

2, Sequim: In his third year, Mike McFarlen has the juggernaut rolling and the Wolves could wind up as co-champs with Kingston again.

3, Port Angeles: The Roughriders lost quite a bit to graduation but are still strong with several key players returning.

4, Olympic: The Trojans have been late-bloomers in the past, playing better ball late in the season and I don’t see that changing this year.

5, North Kitsap: Softball revolves around good pitching and Keller has been a workhorse for the Vikings the past few years.

6, Bremerton: With MacKenzie Willeford, the third baseman gives the Knights power and a chance to make the playoffs.

7, North Mason: The Bulldogs are still in the process of rebuilding but should be competitive.

8, Klahowya: The Eagles will give some teams some fits, but they just don’t have the numbers.

9, Port Townsend: The Redskins have a new coach and it always takes time to rebuild, especially at a small school.

Upcoming games (if it doesn’t rain)

Monday, March 17: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Everybody is on the road as Klahowya travels to Elma, Chimacum is at Sequim, Port Townsend hosts Coupeville and Port Angeles makes its way to Gig Harbor.

Tuesday, March 18: A classic match up between Bainbridge and Central Kitsap. This will be CK’s first-year coach Courtney Lacock’s first home game at Linder Field. Always a fun game with the Spartans.

Wednesday, March 19: Early test for the Trojans as they host Kingston in the Olympic League opener for both teams. Also playing; Klahowya at Port Angeles, North Kitsap at North Mason, and Sequim at Port Townsend.

Thursday, March 20: Bainbridge kicks off the Metro League season against Blanchet, one of the better teams in league that usually provides good competition for the Spartans.

Friday, March 21: More OL action as Bremerton travels to Port Angeles for its opener and Kingston is at North Mason, Klahowya at Olympic and NK at Port Townsend.

Note: I didn’t do a prediction for the Narrows League because we only have two schools, but my guess is South Kitsap should win its second league title, followed by Bellarmine Prep, Olympic, Gig Harbor and Central Kitsap.

The Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association begins play Friday.

Bainbridge and Bellevue will play at 8 p.m. at Bellevue. The Wolverines are the two-time defending state champions, while Bainbridge was a 2013 state semifinalist.
