Postseason Picture: Olympic League football

Two of the Olympic League 2A playoff berths into the West Central District tournament are locked up. North Kitsap (4-0) and Olympic (4-0) meet in Week 9 to determine the No. 1/2 seeds.
Regardless of what happens Friday, that No. 1 seed will be on the line Oct. 31 in Poulsbo.
Olympic coach Sal Quitevis said as much as the Trojans want to peek ahead to the North Kitsap game, Friday’s game against Sequim can’t be overlooked.
“We’ve kept that (theme) all season long — ‘What game’s next?’” Quitevis said. “The kids have been pretty good at keeping that attitude.”
With North Kitsap and Olympic eyeing the top spot, the league’s other two playoff spots are up for grabs.
Bremerton (0-4) would need to win out and have multiple results go its way to force a tiebreaker, so let’s leave the Knights out of the discussion for now. Same goes for Kingston (1-4), although the Buccaneers could make things interesting by beating Port Angeles in Week 9.

CK linebacker Ledesma out with broken leg

One of the area’s top football players is out for the season with a broken leg.

Central Kitsap will be without linebacker Eric Ledesma after the senior broke his fibula in last week’s loss against Lincoln. Ledesma, the team’s leading tackler, is scheduled to have surgery Thursday.

“It was a clean break,” Central Kitsap coach Mark Keel said. “The doctors are saying it should take six-to-eight weeks to heal.”

Postseason Picture: Narrows League football

At 2-5 overall, South Kitsap still has a fair shot at making the playoffs? How, you say?

Well, four Narrows League 4A teams qualify for the state preliminary round. Bellarmine (4-0 in league), Gig Harbor (4-0) and Olympia (3-1) are in good shape, leaving Timberline (2-3), South Kitsap (1-3) and Yelm (1-3) vying for one spot.

Yelm finishes the season with games against Olympia and Gig Harbor, so the Tornadoes’ path is blocked barring a pair of upsets.

South Kitsap hosts last-place Stadium for homecoming on Friday, while Timberline plays a non-leaguer against Puyallup.

It’s likely South Kitsap improves to 2-3 and faces Timberline on the road in Week 9 to determine that fourth seed, which earns a playoff game with the Wesco Conference’s top seed — likely Lake Stevens or Kamiak.

Here’s the full rankings for all classifications:

Class 4A: 1, Emerald Ridge. 2, Bellarmine Prep. 3, Camas. 4, West Valley Yakima. 5, Battle Ground. 6, University. 8, Mead. 9, Curtis. 10 Central Valley Spokane.

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.”
