Two Kitsap basketball players named All-State honorable mention

North Kitsap’s Cole Rabedeaux (2A) and South Kitsap’s Eric Wattree (4A) were honorable mentions on the Associated Press All-State basketball teams released Wednesday.

Here’s the AP story with the complete teams:

SEATTLE — Bellarmine Prep guard Malachi Flynn and Lynnwood star Mikayla Pivec have been voted the 2016 Associated Press Washington state basketball players of the year for all classifications.

Results of the voting conducted by sports writers and editors from around the state were announced on Wednesday. Both Flynn (Class 4A) and Pivec (Class 3A) were also voted the players of the year in their respective classifications.

Flynn averaged nearly 30 points per game in his senior season for the Lions, but has yet to decide where he will play collegiately. Flynn edged out Lakeside of Seattle’s Isiah Brown for state player of the year honors.

Pivec will continue her playing career in college with current Final Four participant Oregon State. Pivec averaged 22 points and 14 rebounds per game this season for Lynnwood. Bellevue’s Anna Wilson, younger sister of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, was second in player of the year voting.

Brown was a clear choice as the boys Class 3A player of the year, as was Clarkston’s Trevon Allen in Class 2A. King’s junior Corey Kispert was the Class 1A player of the year; Jaron Kirkley of Mossyrock was the Class 2B honoree; and Dallas Isaak of Almira/Coulee-Hartline was voted the Class 1B player of the year.

On the girls side, Central Valley sophomore Lexie Hull was voted the Class 4A player of the year. Uju Chibuogwu from state champion Shorecrest was honored in Class 2A, while Kara Bajema of Lynden Christian earned the Class 1A award.

The NK girls finished fifth in the district tournament.

Bainbridge won a district basketball game with 12 points?

So I was I leafing through the West Central District basketball programs that have made their way back to the office.
There’s several district records for Kitsap teams in them:

Bainbridge has the record for the lowest winning score in a district game. The Spartans beat Enumclaw 12-10 in 1932.

North Kitsap’s Kent Kingman 3A district set records for most points (44) and highest average (38.0) in 1978. The Vikings also have the 3A district girls record as Kathy (Iverson) Felix scored 40 in 1980 (it’s since been tied) and averaged 28.7 points.

Bremerton has the record for the highest losing score scoring 79 points in a loss to Rogers in 2001 (Knights are actually tied with Foss, who also scored 79 in a loss that same season).

Bremerton has the district record for most consecutive wins, winning 16 in a row from 1946-51. North Kitsap has the record for longest district losing streak, losing 12 from 1947-2001.

Bainbridge grad Steven Gray holds the 2A district record with most points in a tournament. He scored 98 in 2005 when he was still at Chimacum. He averaged 32.7 points per game that year.

Kingston’s Sophia Baetz holds the 2A district record for points in a game. She scored 41 in a game in 2010. Chimacum’s Caitlin Elridge is No. 2 on that list, scoring 32 (against Port Townsend) in 2006.

North Mason holds the 3A district record for lowest winning score. The Bulldogs beat Clover Park with just 31 points in 2003. That team, which made it to state, featured current coach Steve Hackett.
