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.

Lacrosse update and lookahead

The Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association started its season earlier this week. Klahowya beat Bethel 20-2 at Central Kitsap Junior High Thursday.

Cassidy Andrews led with six goals while Madison Snellenberg had four goals for the Eagles (1-1). Andrews, a midfielder, scored five goals total during the 2013 season. Klahowya led 12-1 at halftime. Goalkeeper Kennedy Daniels had four saves for Klahowya.

Bainbridge is 1-1 on the season. Friday’s games include North Kitsap JV hosting Kennedy JV; North Olympic vs. Bainbridge (Saturday) at 10:30 a.m.

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.

Other local teams playing include Emerald Ridge-Puyallup at North Kitsap and Vashon at Klahowya. Both those games are Saturday.

State swimming Day 2 Updates

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

I’m back in Federal Way for the second day of the state boys swimming and diving meet at the King County Aquatic Center.

The Class 4A meet is done and Newport of Bellevue won the team title with a score of 215.5 points, followed by Issaquah (171) and Gig Harbor (169).

Thomas Anderson, a sophomore from Federal Way, setting a state record in 48.10 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke. Anderson broke Thane Maudslien’s time from last year of 48.56. Maudslien is a Kennedy graduate and is a freshman at the University of Arizona.

Kitsap didn’t have any swimmers make the finals.

The 2A meet begins at 2:30 p.m. followed by the 3A meet at 6:30 p.m.

UPDATE: The 2A meet is underway and Port Angeles won the consolation finals in the 200 medley relay in 1:47.19. North Kitsap finished 13th overall in 1:49.31.

In the 200 IM, Kingston’s Kevin Fox finished 13th in 2:09.76. PA’s John Macias was fifth in 2:02.08.

Through four events, Steilacoom leads the team standings with 76 points, followed by Archbishop Murphy (70) and Lindbergh (69). Port Angeles is ninth (32), North Kitsap is 23rd (8), Kingston is 25th (6) and Klahowya 27th (4).

In the 100 butterfly, Fox placed 13th in 57.10 while PA’s Wei-Yan Fu was 12th in 56.92. The 200 free relay saw Kingston’s 200 free relay place 11th in 1:37.35 and NK’s relay was 12th in 1:37.38. Macias was also fifth in the 100 backstroke in 56.07.

In the 400 free relay, PA placed 11th in 3:31.43.

That’s it for 2A.

Up next is the 3A meet at 6:30(ish)… the meet is running behind.


The 3A meet has begun and Bainbridge has two swimmers on the podium already. Spencer Alpaugh finished seventh in the 200 IM in 1:57.59 and Marcus Tonsmann was eighth in the 200 free in 1:48.25.

Tonsmann also finished 13th in the 100 fly in 53.38. The Spartans 200 free relay placed eighth while the sixth place finish by Sam Alpaugh in the 100 back, CJ Waite’s sixth in the 100 breast (along with the ninth place by Keenan Grant and Bill Lee) helped lead Bainbridge to a fourth-place finish in the team standings.

The Spartans may have started slow, but with such a strong finish, and plenty of talent coming back, don’t be surprised to see Bainbridge make another run at the medal stand next year.

That’s it for swimming this year. The 2014-15 season will kickoff in November with the girls meet.

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.
