More than one goal in mind

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

In past years, it’s been almost a slam dunk for the boys soccer team to make the state playoffs – and almost as great a certainty that they wouldn’t go beyond the first round. This year – the Spartans’ first in Metro, which co-captain Adam Brenneman terms “the best league in the state” – the reverse is likely to be true: Just making the playoffs will be a formidable task, but once there the chances of advancing at least to the second round appear favorable.

Wound up and ready to go

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

Sitting in the home team dugout behind third base, fastpitch coach Steve Nelson surveyed the scene in front of him with satisfaction. “I’m really pleased with the support from the administration to upgrade the field and make it on a par with the other facilities here,” he said. A new chain-link fence encloses the playing field. Piping overhead provides a framework to cover the dugouts. The backstop rises more than 10 additional feet into the air, and soon a 45-degree angle piece extending out over home plate will be installed.

Willy-nilly to Chilly Hilly

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

In one respect, David and Sachiko Williams of Renton were like many of the more than 3,000 cyclists who enjoyed sunny but cold weather in Sunday’s 30th Chilly Hilly – they hadn’t ridden in months. In another respect, they were unique – they were on the same bike as their two children, six-year-old Ken and five-year-old Emi. The parents rode a standard tandem, while the youngsters were on a two-seater Adams Manufacturing Co. Trail-a-Bike, which attached to the rear seat post of the tandem. For Ken, this is becoming standard procedure; he’s completed three Chilly Hillys. “My favorite part was the downhills,” he said.

Absolutely FABulous

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

As Blanchet’s Michelle Augustavo lined up to take two nail-in-the-coffin free throws in Tuesday’s season-ending basketball game – with less than one second showing on the clock – Spartan senior guard Fab Rezayat had a vision. “The last four years flashed in front of me,” she said. “It was really sad. I didn’t want things to end, especially not like that.”

Grapplers bow out at State

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

‘Wonderful year’ comes to an end

Girls bow out with loss to Blanchet

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:55PM

The girls basketball team ended its season with a 54-49 loss to Blanchet in the District 2 Tournament on Tuesday. The Spartans led by 12 points midway through the third quarter, but pressure defense and a barrage of three-point shots allowed the Braves to close the gap and open a five-point lead of their own with two minutes left. The Spartans got to within one, but Blanchet sank four late free throws to secure the win. Christine Schwager scored 11 points to lead Bainbridge scoring, while Alice Russell and Fab Rezayat both added 10. It was the final game for seniors Courtney Kimball, Natalie Berry, Schwager and Rezayat. The team finished the season with a 13-11 record. A complete game story will appear in Saturday's Review.

About a year after moving to Bainbridge in the late ‘80s, Chris Miller showed up at the Ray Williamson Pool and asked the cashier what kinds of diving boards it had. “You know how to dive?” he was asked. Miller replied that he’d been a competitive diver and coach for a number of years. The cashier asked him to wait and disappeared. “Five minutes later, a tall guy with arms down to his knees comes out, crosses his arms, and says, ‘I understand you know how to dive,’” Miller recalls, chuckling at the memory.

Literally.

Five spring on to state

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:54PM

The gymnastics team scored the second-highest point total in school history and Emily Roche set a school record in the vault, but it wasn’t enough to send the Spartans to Friday’s state meet as a team. Instead, five girls from what coach Cindy Guy called “my best team ever” will compete in one or more individual events.

Ready? OK!

Gymnastics team takes home the trophy

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:54PM

Island sports fans who glanced at the headline in Sunday’s Seattle Times received a rude shock. “Gymnastics: Ballard wins first Metro League title,” it said. The truth – which was accurately reported in the accompanying story – was that the BHS gymnastics team easily won the school’s first Metro League trophy in Saturday’s competition at Ballard, finishing with 172 points to the hosts’ 155.1.

Shorted, but still competitive

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:54PM

Sometimes, size matters. With the girls basketball team trailing by two points on Tuesday at Eastside Catholic with just under two minutes remaining, the Crusaders’ 6-6 post Sarah McKay simply reached up above everyone else to snare a teammate’s missed shot and bank home what proved to be the winning points.

Definitely something to shout about

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:54PM

From the moment that Dr. James Naismith hammered a pair of peach baskets onto the wall of the Springfield (Mass.) YMCA and invented basketball in 1891, millions of kids have shared the same dream. Whether it’s a gym in Georgia or a Pennsylvania playground, a beachfront California court or an Arizona alley, youngsters are out shooting baskets, counting down “5...4...3...2...1” and draining walk-off jumpers to win that imagined “big game” in front of cheering fans. For a fortunate few such as Michael Jordan – and BHS senior Travis Guterson – it actually happens.

Perfect!

  • Jan 30, 2002 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 7:54PM

The gymnastics team finished its regular season undefeated on Friday, scoring 172.30 points to North Kitsap’s 156.30 and Nathan Hale’s 142.30. “We wanted to hit a little better,” said coach Cindy Guy. “We were hoping for a school record in front of the home fans. But we had a couple of falls. Maybe it was the stress of the last home meet.”

Treading on the wings of Eagles

The wrestling team went beyond a perfect score against Cleveland on Tuesday. The Spartans themselves scored the maximum possible 84 points, and a Cleveland wrestler who drop-kicked his headgear around the Spartan gym after disagreeing that he’d been pinned was assessed with a team penalty point, making the final match score 84 to (-1).

Out of playoffs, Spartans give it their all

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:53PM

Split decision: Girls hoops go 1-and-1

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:53PM

It was the best of quarters, it was the worst of quarters. With less than two seconds remaining in the second quarter of Friday’s game against Seattle Prep, Fab Rezayat hit a running five-foot hook shot and was fouled.

Hang on: These girls are going places

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:53PM

With very little fanfare, this year’s gymnastics team has not only accumulated the best record of any Spartan team so far this year – the girls are undefeated in six meets – but is also, as coach Cindy Guy says flatly, “the best team I’ve ever had here.”

Both 189 and 275, he’s quite a Paradox

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:53PM

Several glasses of water were the key element as Seth Paradox became the only Spartan to reach the championship round of Saturday’s 19th Island Invitational. With the water’s extra weight, the Spartan senior was a couple of ounces above 189 at the morning’s weigh-in. That meant he was technically in the 215 weight class, and therefore eligible to wrestle up a yet another weight at 275.

Hot Shot: Photographer Pete Saloutos has an extraordinary eye – and a professionalism to match.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:53PM

“I was hoping that this call would be the one to set me up for the rest of my life,” said island photographer Pete Saloutos last month. The offer was considerably less: a request to shoot a Spartan JV basketball game for this publication on a Saturday afternoon in the midst of the busy Christmas season, during a year that Saloutos terms “the worst of my 36 years as a professional photographer” because of fallout from Sept. 11.

Wrestlers fall to O’Dea, 39-27
