Leak springs at North Kitsap’s football stadium

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

A small section of turf on North Kitsap High School’s football field is in the process of being repaired after broken pipe flooded part of the field last week.

North Kitsap football coach Jeff Weible said the pipe, which runs near the 50-yard line and continues toward the baseball field, produced two to three inches of standing water last week. A 12-foot by 12-foot section of the field was cut out Tuesday and revealed a cracked coupling where two sections of pipe were joined.

Weible said the pipe fix and turf repairs should be finished by the time the football field is needed for use. North Kitsap hosts Bainbridge on Sept. 5 to open the season.

Olympic removes interim tag from football coach

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Sal Quitevis, who took over the Olympic football program on an interim basis last summer, has been given the job officially.
Olympic athletic director Nate Andrews removed the interim tag on Friday. Quitevis led the Trojans to a 5-5 record and into the Class 2A West Central District tournament, where they lost to Lindbergh 20-0.
Andrews said this in an email:
“Sal agreed to step up at a time when we were in a real bind regarding our head football coach position and he has done a remarkable job considering the complexity of the position. Knowing the position was only guaranteed for one year, and stepping in with little experience, he selflessly committed his time and energy to lead both his coaching staff and his players during the 2013 season and this off-season. As an alumni of OHS and someone that truly believes OHS Football can be a perennial power, we felt Sal was the right person to lead that effort.”
Quitevis took over for Brad Hamblet, the former Klahowya football coach, who took over one season as Tim Allbee was having healthy problems.

Coaches must take the course every two years and pass a test showing they understand the course content.
