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.”

Klahowya’s Crane sisters nearing Ironman status

Klahowya senior Kelsey Crane is nearing Ironman status once again. Her little sister isn’t far behind.

Kelsey, the three-time state champion swimmer, has qualified for the Class 1A/2A meet in seven of the eight individual swimming events; 200-yard freestyle, 200 individual medley, 50 free, 100 butterfly, 500 freestyle and the 100 backstroke. She is still seeking qualifying time in the 100 freestyle.

It wouldn’t be the first time Crane has earned the coveted status. If she manages it again this year, it will be the fourth time in her four-year career.

Kira, a freshman, has qualified in five of the events in her first season; 200 free, 200 IM, 50 free, 100 free and 100 back. She’s missing the 100 breast, 100 fly and 500 free.
