As per usual in April, there hasn’t been much softball the last
week due to the rainy weather.
But that trend seems to have changed for this week as the
weather is supposed to clear and be nice.
And that means softball. So here’s a breakdown of this week’s
games with some meaning.
Monday—The top four teams in the Olympic League
take on each other and depending on the outcomes, there could be
some shuffling in the standings. Fourth-place Kingston (5-2)
travels to league-leader Sequim (7-0), while second-place Port
Angeles heads to Olympic (6-2) to face the third-place Trojans. All
games are at 4 p.m.
Wednesday—A mid-week showdown between
first-place Holy Names (8-0) and second-place Bainbridge (6-0)
should be a good one as these rivals meet in Metro League Mountain
Division play. These two teams usually meet to decide the ML title
and do battle in SeaKing District play as well. If you’re anywhere
near the island, I’d suggest catching this game to see two solid
programs going head-to-head. The game starts at 4 p.m. at BHS.
In the Narrows League, the second meeting between the two 4A
schools, Central Kitsap (2-3) and South Kitsap (4-0) will be at
Linder Field in Silverdale. SK won the last meeting as former CK
alum and current SK coach Jessica Cabato beat mentor Bruce
Friday—It looks like the rains might return,
but if it holds off you’ll see a repeat battle between Holy Names
and Bainbridge, this time at Lower Woodland Park in Seattle. Closer
to home an inter-district rivalry game between North Kitsap (3-4)
and Kingston is set for 4 p.m.
