Stark Truth: Another Busy Sports Weekend LoomsMay 18th, 2008 by cstark
This past weekend was probably the busiest of the year for the
staff in the toy department of this newspaper. We had state soccer
and baseball, district fastpitch, track and field and tennis, along
with the state lacrosse championships.
Olympic College’s softball team was competing in the NWAACC Championships in addition to the NCAA West Regional golf tournament at Gold Mountain, hydroplane races at Kitsap Lake and a weekend of drag racing at Bremerton Raceway. We tried to get things covered the best we could.
If you’re still aching to see some local high school athletes in action, this weekend is your last chance: Central Kitsap (4A, Tacoma), Bainbridge (3A, Tacoma), North Mason (2A, Selah) and Chimacum (1A, Spokane)) will all be competing in state fastpitch tournaments, and we’ll have a fairly large contingent of kids competing at the state track and field meets (4A/3A in Pasco, 2A/1A in Tacoma and 2B in Spokane) that are spread out across the state. Central Kitsap is sending a pair of doubles team to the 4A state tennis tournament in Vancouver. Visit our Prep Beat blog for updates on our locals teams and athletes next weekend.
If you’re still looking for something to do this coming weekend, you can also check out the annual Viking Cup soccer tournament in Poulsbo or stop by Legion Field in Bremerton to take in some of the Memorial Day American Legion baseball tournament.
