Kitsap doubles up on state soccer championships

Kitsap doesn’t win a lot of state soccer titles, but it won two on Sunday.
Klahowya won the Class 1A title by beating King’s 1-0 in Shoreline.
It matches the 2A title the Eagles won — the first in county history — back in 1999.
The goal they scored was just the sixth King’s had given up this year.

Crosspoint won its second consecutive Class B title, beating Liberty Bell 5-1.

That gives Kitsap four girls state soccer and six overall.

Playoff seeds still up for grabs in volleyball

While teams have guaranteed spots into the upcoming district volleyball tournaments, there are a few teams that still have seedings to play for — and that begins with Tuesday’s matches. The West Central District tournaments begin Nov. 7 and are double elimination.

In the Olympic League 2A, Sequim and Olympic are playing for the league’s No. 2 seed. Sequim (9-2) has the edge over Olympic (8-2) heading into their match at Olympic, but a win by the Trojans would force a tiebreaker. Right now, I believe that’s a head-to-head matchup (they split) and then games won/lost. If Sequim takes the second seed, the Wolves will play the SPSL No. 4 at Franklin Pierce at 3:30 p.m. If Oly is the third seed, it will play at 5:15 p.m. at Franklin Pierce vs. the Seamount No. 2.

Bremerton has the fourth seed and will take on the SPSL No. 2 at Washington HS, at 3:30 p.m. North Mason is the fifth seed and faces the SPSL No. 1 at Franklin Pierce at 5:15 p.m.

North Kitsap has wrapped up the No. 1 seed and will face the South Puget Sound League No. 5 seed, at 5:15 p.m. at Washington HS.

In 1A, Klahowya earned a first-round bye and will host the winner of the Olympic No. 3/Nisqually No. 2 match, Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. Chimacum, Port Townsend and Coupeville are still alive for the two other seeds. Chimacum and PT played Monday, but no score was reported to the league.

I know Central Kitsap has locked up a spot into the 3A WCD tourney, and they’ll face the Greater St. Helens League No. 2 at Auburn Mountainview at 3:30 p.m. South Kitsap is likely the fifth seed in the 4A, and it looks like they’ll take on the SPSL No. 1 at Kentwood at 2:30 p.m.

Bainbridge is playing in the first round of the Metro League tournament on Tuesday. They are playing the Sound/Valley No. 5 seed at Lakeside HS at 7 p.m.

And last, but not least, Crosspoint will host the winner of the Muckleshoot Tribal/Mount Rainier Lutheran match on Wednesday in the Sea-Tac League 1B tourney. That match is at 6 p.m.

Big week coming up for volleyball teams

There will be plenty on the line for several local volleyball teams next week as teams start to focus in on potential playoff scenarios.

In the 2A Olympic League, the clash between league-leading North Kitsap (8-0) and Sequim (8-1) will be Tuesday in Poulsbo. North, which is ranked No. 4, beat Sequim in five games earlier this season and the Vikings would be in clear contention for a division title with three games left. NK won the silver division of the Capital City Invitational on Saturday, splitting matches with 2A Sehome (25-13, 20-25), 4A Bothel (13-25, 27-25) and 4A Puyallup (25-11, 18-25). However, in the Puyallup match, senior setter and defending league MVP Sarah Holt suffered a high ankle sprain. NK coach Tim French is unsure whether Holt will be available to play next week or for the foreseeable future. High-ankle sprains typically take several weeks to heal.

“That was the low-point of our day,” French said.

The Vikings won three straight in the silver bracket, beating 2A Mark Morris 25-19, 25-21; 3A North Thurston 25-22, 25-21 and 2A Ellensburg 17-25, 25-22, 15-10.

Third-place Olympic takes on Port Angeles and North Mason this week and look be solidly in contention for one of four playoff berths to the West Central District tournament next month.

The Bremerton Knights will need a win over North Mason on Tuesday to help keep its playoff hopes alive. The Knights (4-5) will face NK and Sequim to finish the season.

Eighth-ranked Klahowya is in the heart of its 1A division run, with games against Chimacum and Port Townsend this week. Chimacum (1-1) heads to Klahowya (2-0) Tuesday and Port Townsend will be in Seabeck on Thursday.

In Sea-Tac League, third-place Crosspoint (7-3) is at fourth-place Evergreen Lutheran (6-3) Tuesday. The top four seeds host league tournament games starting Oct. 29. The Warriors are coming off a tough 5-game loss to Vashon on Friday on senior night. Game scores were 20-25, 16-25, 25-16, 25-11, 25-8.

In the Narrows, Central Kitsap, which sits in third place at 8-3, will face 9-2 North Thurston Monday in Silverdale. A win would put CK into a tie with NT in the 3A division. The Cougars also face Wilson (2-9) on Wednesday. In 4A, South Kitsap (3-6) is at 6-3 Timberline on Tuesday and host 6-3 Gig Harbor on Thursday.

In Metro League, the Bainbridge Spartans (0-8) face the Blanchet Braves (2-5) on Monday and then are at Mountain Division-leading Holy Names (8-0) on Wednesday.

 

Crosspoint’s Doty named WIAA Athlete of the Week

Crosspoint Academy senior Desere’e Doty was named the WIAA Athlete of the Week for her achievements in soccer and volleyball.

Doty helped lead the Warriors soccer team to two wins, scoring hat tricks in both games and adding six assists. For the volleyball team, Doty had six kills, five aces and four blocks.

Doty will receive a congratulatory letter from Mike Colbrese, the executive director of the WIAA, an Athlete of the Week t-shirt and a certificate. Winners are also posted on the WIAA website.
