Big six grapple for state

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:05PM

The question of why it took Bainbridge High School 35 years to win its first wrestling championship is somewhat baffling. Granted, they are no longer in the now-defunct Olympic League, where 4A powers Central Kitsap and Olympic were just too dominant, or the WESCO, where rural schools in the later ‘80s and ‘90s, such as Lake Stevens and Sedro Woolley took their “rasslin’” very seriously.

Russell's got hustle

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:04PM

By and large, seniors provide the backbone of a varsity high school team. Coming into the 2002-2003 campaign, the Spartan girls basketball team was in an unusual position – there weren’t any seniors turning out for the squad. However, the lack of age didn’t mean there was a lack of returning leadership – like that exhibited by 16-year-old Alice Russell. “It’s like we’re on a two-year program, leading the team,” Russell said of her fellow Spartan juniors. “We have to step up, and I think we’re doing it.”

We got it under control after the first quarter.”

Evans hits jackpot in ‘Pick Three’

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:04PM

Bainbridge High School senior Spencer Evans is a bit of a throwback to the athletes of yesteryear – the players who take the challenge of any sport that’s offered, and strive to be more than just a participant. The three-sport letterman – excelling at three different sports through his or her high school career – is a virtual unknown in high schools anymore.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:04PM

Spartan junior Alice Russell sent the Bainbridge High girls into the holidays with a buzzer-beating three-pointer to defeat the Lakeside Lions, 48-47, Friday night on the Spartan home court.

On a muddy Woodward field, the Bainbridge Island Riptides polished off a sparkling undefeated season Saturday with a 2-1 victory over FC Kitsap White.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:04PM
