Finally, CK-Oly-Klahowya swim results

The email that delivered the following swimming results finally found its way in to The Sun’s in box. Where it’s been is a mighty mystery. Cyberspace can be a funny place.

CK coach Mike Thorniley sent it Dec. 4, the night of the meet.

And he sent it again … and again.

Finally, it popped in this morning (Dec. 11, 8:06 a.m. to be exact)

Sequim’s Harrison signs with Western

Sequim outside hitter Haleigh Harrison, the MVP of the Olympic League, has signed a letter of intent to play volleyball at Western Washington.

Harrison led the Wolves to a 20-3 record, league and West Central District titles, and a trip to the Class 2A state tourney. She was also a first-team all-league choice as a sophomore and junior,  earned all-league honors in basketball and set school track records in the high jump (5-5) and triple jump (34-10).
“Haleigh is a high-flying, hard-hitting athlete, and the emphasis is on the athlete,” said WWU coach Diane Flick in a press release. “She converted from the middle to the outside and brought with her an ability to handle the ball and terminate at the pins.”

WWU (23-3) is competing in the NCAA Division II West Regional this week after winning the Great Northwest Athletic Conference title.

Mapping out first round of state football playoffs

Got through my first cup of java and figured I’d take a stab at trying to figure out the first-round pairings for the state football playoffs. Turns out our good buddy at the Tacoma News Tribune, Todd (Many Hats) Milles, beat me to the punch.

Archbishop Murphy will be at Bremerton, as we reported, in a game that will probably be played at Silverdale Stadium on Friday or Saturday.

Kingston is at Sumner, as we reported.

And if Central Kitsap beats Roosevelt Saturday night (check out the live streaming at, the Cougars will head across the Sound to play Tahoma or Jackson.

Here’s a look at how it’s shaping up state-wide for the top three classification. Thanks Todd.

It could put him in jeopardy of missing next week’s first-round state playoff game, but Bremerton coach Nate Gillam has already said he will file an appeal. Shadle’s second penalty came after he jumped up and signaled first down after a carry.
