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.

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.

North Kitsap remained in the No. 5 spot in the 2A classification while Klahowya is ranked ninth in 1A. The rankings are voted on by the Washington State Volleyball Coaches Association.

Here are the rankings for this week (there is no 4A/3A as coaches did not submit rankings)

Class 2A—1, Tumwater. 2, Sehome. 3, Selah. 4, Burlington-Edison. 5, North Kitsap. 6, Ridgevield. 7, East Valley-Spokane. 8, East Valley-Yakima. 9, Archbishop Murphy. 10, Fife.

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.

NK, Klahowya volleyball still ranked in state polls

The North Kitsap and Klahowya volleyball teams remained among the top 10 teams in their respective classifications, according to the Washington State Coaches Association statewide polls. The polls are voted on by coaches and were released Monday.

North Kitsap is ranked fifth in the 2A while Klahowya is ninth in the 1A. Both teams have already clinched berths to the West Central District tournaments.

Here are the rankings for 2A and 1A.

Class 2A—1, Selah. 2, Tumwater. 3, Seshome. 4, Burlington-Edison. 5, North Kitsap. 6, Ridgefield. 7, East Valley Spokane. 8, East Valley Yakima. 9, Archbishop Murphy. 10, Fife.

Class 1A—1, Lakeside. 2, Lynden Christian. 3, Cedar Park Christian. 4, Cascade. 5, Connell. 6, Freeman. 7, Kalama. 8, Chelan. 9, Klahowya. 10, Kings.
