Kingston appears in state hoops poll

The Kingston girls climb into the Associated Press state rankings. The Bucs are ranked No. 9 in the 2A classification.
They slipped in just as the Central Kitsap girls slipped out. They went from No. 8 to unranked after losing last week. CK hosts No. 9 Wilson on Wednesday night. A win could put them back in the rankings next week.

State Swimming Finals Thread

We are underway for the finals of the state swimming and diving meet at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

First up is the 3A classification, which for Kitsap includes Bainbridge and Central Kitsap.

Bainbridge’s 200 medley relay, Mikelle Ackerley (200 free, 100 free), Allison Murphy (200 IM, 100 back), Samantha Cara (100 free), 200 free relay, Ani Duni (100 breast) and the 400 free relay are all into the A finals.

Central Kitsap’s Leah Avery, who won the district title in the 100 backstroke, qualified for the B finals in the 200 IM today. Avery didn’t qualify for the finals in the back.

In the 200 medley relay, Bainbridge finished fourth in 1 minute, 51.47 seconds.

UPDATE: Bainbridge’s Carina Laukaitis finished 14th in the 200 free in 2:02.34 while Natalie Ackerley finished second in the B finals, 10th overall, in the 200 IM in 2:13.15.

UPDATE: In the 200 individual medley, Bainbridge’s Allison Murphy finished eighth in 2:11.85, Natalie Ackerley placed 10th (2:13.15) and Leah Avery of CK was 16th (2:19.49). In the 50 free, Samantha Caro of Bainbridge finished 11th. Through four events Bainbridge sits in fourth place in the team standings with 70 points. Lakeside-Seattle is first (131), followed by Mercer Island (104) and Bellevue (80).

UPDATE: In diving, the Spartans had two top eight finishers and both are sophomores. Cameron Rouser, of Kingston, placed fourth with 355.50 points and Zora Opalka was sixth (338.90). Bainbridge’s highest individual placer so far is Mikelle Ackerley. The senior finished third in the 100 free in 53.62. Former Bainbridge champion, Emily Silver, who won four 100 free titles (and four 50 free titles) still holds the state record in that event in 50.16 set in 2003.

UPDATE: Bainbridge’s Ani Duni finished fourth in the 100 breaststroke, breaking the school record of 1:06.04 by Tess Harpur in the process. Duni clocked a 1:05.94. Allison Murphy placed fourth in the 100 back in 1:00.33. Both Duni and Murphy are juniors.

All three of the Spartans relays placed in the top four with the 200 free finishing second in 1:39.60. The 400 free was fourth.

Overall, Bainbridge finished third in the team standings with 187 points. Lakeside repeated as champs, with a 281, followed by Mercer Island, 242.5.

Up next is the 4A meet which starts at 2:30 p.m.

UPDATE: In the 4A, Monkhouse finished fifth in the 50 free in 24.80. She’s the only Kitsap qualifier in this session.

The 2A meet starts at 6:30 p.m. as Klahowya’s Kelsey Crane will be eyeing a state title in either the 200 IM or butterfly.

UPDATE: At the 2A meet, Kelsey Crane finished second in the 200 IM and fifth in the butterfly. Kira was third in the 100 backstroke and sixth in the 50 free. The Eagles 200 medley relay was 14th while the 400 free relay placed eighth. It’s the first time the 400 relay had qualified and the girls were pretty ecstatic, albeit tired after a long two days.

Klahowya coach Diana Peterson was named the 2A coach of the year, the first time she’s won the award. The Eagles finished 11th overall in the team standings. North Kitsap placed 13th. Port Angeles was eighth; Port Townsend 15th; Sequim 33rd and Bremerton 30th.

North Kitsap’s 200 free relay was disqualified (they had two swimmers in the water during an exchange). NK’s Serita Solis finished eighth in the butterfly and Kingston’s Katherine Anderson was eighth in the 100 breaststroke.

BKAT to show volleyball doubleheader Sunday

A volleyball doubleheader will be shown on Sunday in Kitsap on Wave Broadband Ch. 3 or Comcast Ch. 12.
BKAT will re-broadcast two Olympic League games, Kingston at Bremerton from Oct. 16, and Port Townsend at Klahowya from Oct. 23. The Kingston/Bremerton match will be at noon, followed by PT/Klahowya at about 1:15 p.m.
The games will be live streamed at the same time at bkat.org.

 

Several Friday games moving to Thursday

This week’s football schedule is changing to accommodate a possible Olympic League 2A tiebreaker. North Mason, Port Angeles and Sequim could end up in a three-way tie for the last two playoff spots (North Kitsap and Olympic have the first two wrapped up).
That tiebreaker would be Nov. 4 at Silverdale Stadium. As that tiebreaker is next Tuesday, the three teams are moving their games to Thursday to get an extra day of rest.
Bremerton at Sequim is now on Thursday as is Port Angeles at Kingston.
North Mason is playing a non-league at Klahowya. The schools are trying to move the game up a day, but it’s complicated as Central Kitsap is hosting Wilson Thursday.
UPDATE: North Mason is still playing Klahowya on Friday. CK’s game against Wilson also remained unchanged.

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.

 

Oly boys tennis tourney next week

The Olympic League boys tennis championships is Wednesday and Thursday. The tournament at North Kitsap begins at 8 a.m. The seeding meeting for coaches is Monday.
Olympic’s Tye Loan is 13-0 in match play, having lost just seven games all year. He is the early favorite to win the singles title, move on to district and make a strong run at the 2A state title in the spring.
“He’s looking good,” Oly coach Steve Lutz said. “Tye Loan will be my No. 1.”
North Kitsap (9-2) trails Sequim (10-2) in the team standings by a half-game. The Vikings are one of the deeper teams headed to the playoffs. NK coach Jay DeVries is pleased with how well his No. 1 doubles team, Nicky Butler and Josh Benson (13-0) are playing. DeVries said they could make a strong push toward a state title as well.
“They might be the best doubles team I’ve ever had,” he said. “These two are the best. They’re solid. It will be fun to see what they can do.”

 

NK and Klahowya remain in position in volleyball rankings

The North Kitsap Vikings keep holding steady in the Class 2A Washington State Coaches Association volleyball this week at the No. 4 spot.

The Klahowya Eagles also remained among the top 10 in the 1A, staying at the No. 8 spot. Klahowya is coming off a 3-0 win over Coupeville on Tuesday while Chimacum beat Port Townsend 3-2. That puts both of those teams at 1-0 in the 1A division of the Olympic League. The Eagles take on Port Townsend at home Thursday while Chimacum is at Coupeville. If Chimacum and Klahowya win, they’ll face each other Tuesday, Oct. 21 at Klahowya in a game that could have playoff implications.

As for the Vikings, they beat Port Angeles 3-0 on Tuesday and will head to North Mason Thursday.  While not ranked, Olympic and Bremerton remain among the teams vying for playoffs in the 2A along with Sequim.

LOOKING AHEAD

Let’s take a look at this week’s schedule and see if there’s any interesting matches.

Tuesday: Port Angeles travels to Bremerton in a re-match. Bremerton beat PA in PA for the first time in many years (it might be a first in school history, but that’s not confirmed). Kingston travels to Olympic to see if it can dethrone the Trojans as one of the few unbeatens in Olympic League play. In Narrows League, Central Kitsap (3-2) takes on Wilson (1-4) in Tacoma. In Sea-Tac 1B, Crosspoint (3-1) travels to struggling Auburn Adventist (1-2).

Wednesday: The Spartans from Bainbridge take on old foe Blanchet in Metro action while South Kitsap hosts always formidable Olympia in Narrows League action.

Thursday: North Kitsap faces Sequim for the first time this year. I think Sequim will give the Vikings a run for their money, but I can’t see NK losing this one. Also, CK hosts Mount Tahoma (1-4) in another league counter and could really put itself in good position with two league wins this week.  Crosspoint will look to break a tie for third in league when it hosts Rainier Christian.

Also, Port Townsend coach Nettie Hawkins sent in results from the Anacortes tournament last weekend. Here’s how her players did individually;

Abby McGuire- 19 assists, 12 kills, 16 digs, 2 aces
Megan Juran- 8 kills, 13 digs, 2 aces
Megan Lee- 35 digs, 2 kills
Baili Shaw- 5 kills, 4 aces
Rio Golden- 7 kills, 18 digs, 3 aces
Jenna Carson- 3 ace 3 blocks
Amy Hemsley- 8 assists, 5 digs
Avery Selisch- 6 kills, 5 digs
