District girls hoops update

Friday, February 14th, 2014

After the first round of playoffs for girls basketball for 4A, I thought I’d take a minute to breakdown more of the particulars as sub-districts finished Friday.

Let’s look at the big schools first.

Both South Kitsap and Central Kitsap are in loser-out games Saturday at Stadium HS. South is up first against Emerald Ridge at 4:30 p.m., followed by Central Kitsap vs. Union at 6:30 p.m. If they both win, they’ll move on to play again Tuesday in another loser-out game at Puyallup HS. South would play at 6 p.m. and CK at 7:45 p.m.

Wait, I’m not done. If they both win again, CK and South could face each other in a winner-to-regional game next Thursday back at Stadium at 7:45 p.m. The loser of that game has one final shot to make district as the seventh seed.

Got it? OK, moving on.

Let’s look at the 2A bracket.

Olympic will face either Washington or Tyee (played Friday) at 1 p.m. Monday at Curtis HS. That game is loser out. If the Trojans win, they’ll take on White River/Sumner at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Bellarmine Prep in a winner-to-regional game and from there it’s all seeding.

Kingston has a first-round bye and awaits the winner of the Washington/Tyee vs. Renton game. The Bucs play Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. at Wilson High. A win would move them into the semifinals, guarantee them a berth to regionals and a shot at the district title.

Sequim also faces a loser-out game at 2:45 p.m. Monday against Franklin Pierce at Curtis. A win and the Wolves take on Port Angeles at 6 p.m Wednesday. PA is in the same situation as Kingston, so who knows, maybe those two teams will meet again in the finals.

Our two lone schools in the 3A and 2B are Bainbridge and Crosspoint Academy, respectively. Bainbridge is the No. 7 seed to the SeaKing District tournament after a 42-27 win over Eastside Catholic Thursday. The Spartans are at Lakeside at 7 p.m. Saturday in a loser-out game. If Bainbridge wins, it will play at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday against Bellevue at Bellevue CC. A win there would put Bainbridge into regionals. A loss, and the Spartans are facing elimination Feb. 21 at 4:45 p.m. at BCC.

For Crosspoint, the Warriors are into the bi-district tourney and take on either Auburn Adventist or Darrington at 7 p.m. Tuesday in a loser-out game. A win for Crosspoint would have them traveling to the District 1 No. 1 seed at 7 p.m. for a winner-to-regional game.


Crosspoint shifting to 1B

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Crosspoint Academy will be staying in the Sea-Tac League, but the private school won’t be in the 2B classification, where it has been since the B classification split in 2006. 

The Sea-Tac is shifting to a 1B league, and the Warriors are following suit.

“Crosspoint will stay within their enrollment count and be a 1B school,” Crosspoint athletic director Christine Cattell said. “Even though our enrollment is up 30 percent over the last two years, it was the best place to be.”

The league will be a 12-team league with one school, Auburn Adventist, remaining a 2B. Cattell said there will be no divisions within the league since only three sports are played at all the schools — volleyball and boys and girls basketball.

“Scheduling for the next two years will be creative,” she said, “but Crosspoint is thankful for no divisions, as we want to keep our playing relationships with the local schools here on the peninsula.”

Girls basketball playoff scenario less muddled

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

It always takes some doing this time of year to figure out who’s going where and who’s staying home in regards to girls basketball playoffs.

This I do know.

Central Kitsap, Kingston and Port Angeles are in. South Kitsap, Bainbridge, Olympic, Sequim and Crosspoint are almost in. North Kitsap is on the outside looking in and needs help.

Here’s how it breaks down.

In the 4A Narrows, second-place Central Kitsap clinched a playoff berth with its thumping of Foss last week and is 7-3 with two games left. CK is at Gig Harbor and then is at Olympia. It’s likely the Cougars will remain the second seed into the West Central/Southwest Bi-district tournament which starts Feb. 13. South Kitsap sits at 6-4 thanks to its big win over Olympia (6-4) Friday and now holds an edge over the Bears and Yelm. SK can clinch a playoff berth with a win in one of its last two games, against Yelm (4-6) or Stadium (0-11).

Now let’s take a look at the 2A Olympic League.

Port Angeles is the No. 1 seed. The Roughriders (13-1) have a bye on Tuesday and will finish at Sequim on Friday. Second-place Kingston can keep that seed if the Buccaneers (10-3) win out. They face North Mason and Olympic in their last two games. Olympic and Sequim are tied for third (both are at 9-4), but are in control of their own destinies if they keep winning. Oly faces Klahowya and Bremerton while Sequim takes on PA and North Kitsap. NK (7-6) didn’t help itself with a one-point loss to 1A Port Townsend last Friday, but is still in the fifth and final spot. NK, which saw the return of all-league guard and DII recruit Kristin Brown from an earlier ankle injury, is at Sequim Tuesday and hosts district rival Kingston Friday.

Last, but not least, Bainbridge and Crosspoint Academy.

Crosspoint is the only West Sound team to make the AP state basketball rankings, coming in in ninth place the last two weeks in the 2B classification. The Warriors suffered their first loss of the Sea-Tac League season against Bear Creek, but are still in fine shape heading toward the playoffs. Crosspoint has should sew up a playoff spot, soon, if it hasn’t already, but its seed is TBD.

Bainbridge is in the same situation in the 3A. The Spartans (5-7) will head to the Metro League tournament — the top 10 teams make it— but as what seed we’ll have to wait a bit on that one. Right now it looks like they might be in the loser-out portion of the bracket, which starts Feb. 10. Bainbridge has two games left, against Chief Sealth and Lakeside.
