Expect a quick step this year from the Spartan girls’ varsity basketball team. “One thing we have this year is speed, and we’ll change the offense to accommodate that,” said Bainbridge girls basketball coach Penny Gienger, who graduated all but one of her starters from last year’s 15-5 team.

Glorious day for a run in the park

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:14PM

Build up a big enough lead, and you can survive anything. Even misdirection. So it went for Hillary Pritchett, who survived a mixup on a far leg of the cross country course at Battle Point Park Thursday, and still ran off with the race at the finish. Pritchett recorded a time of 20:10 for the three-mile trek, a result skewed by some unfortunate backtracking at the duck pond. “I got lost a few times, or I would have had a faster time,” the Bainbridge High School sophomore said. “The whole time, I was wondering if I was going the right way.”

Swimmers finding strength in youth

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:14PM

After saying goodbye to the best swimmer in Bainbridge High School history, coach Greg Colby is rebuilding, and reloading with promising freshmen.  “We lost 12 seniors last year, and they were all point-getters,” Colby said. “And we lost the fastest swimmer in state history in Emily Silver. That’s a hard act to follow, but this year’s team is doing a good job of it. 

Everything went right, and then some

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:14PM

There were aspects of the Spartan football team’s performance Friday evening that are sure to stand out in fans’ minds, like Grant Leslie’s five touchdown passes, or Zach Kornfeld’s 106 yards rushing on just 11 carries. And then there were elements of Ingraham’s play that summed up that squad’s fortunes – like the onside kick that went the wrong direction. Not “that was picked up and run back the other way”; the kick actually went backwards.

A ‘hardcore, go get ’em’ victory

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:14PM

From the stands, a 2-0 halftime lead looks pretty solid. Not so from the sidelines, Jackie Danzig maintains. “It’s the most dangerous lead,” the Spartan junior goalkeeper said. “The winners are thinking, ‘oh, it’s in the bag,’ and the losers are thinking, ‘we’re still in this.’ “It’s a race to goal number three, that’s what we always say.”

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:13PM

If you were to bring one item to the Babe Ruth State Championships last week, it should have been a pacemaker. The 13-year-old Bainbridge All-Stars took fourth place in the tournament after a nail-biting campaign that began and ended at home plate. “There were a lot of close plays,” manager Israel Gaphni said. “And a lot of plays at the plate. It was exciting.”

Roller hockey may be the most fun you can have on eight wheels.
Roller hockey on Bainbridge is more about the sun, friends and fun – the last thing on everyone’s mind seems to be the score. “I think we ended up winning,” said Penguins coach Jay Bohonos, after a close game with the Blackhawks. “We really came together there at the end.” Although the outcome may be elusive, the Bainbridge Roller Hockey League boasts no shortage of enthusiasm among young and old. The league has exploded since its beginning seven years ago, when 28 kids played on a blacktop rink enclosed by plywood boards. For the third straight year, BRHL maxed out enrollment at 150, with 12 teams divided evenly among three divisions and players ranging in age from 9-17.

Gridders bulk up for fall campaign

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:13PM

Summer break means morning workouts for Spartan football hopefuls.
It’s early – well, early for any kid during the summer – as the Spartan football team racks up the iron in preparation for the fall season. Determined not to repeat last year’s disappointing 3-7 record, the Spartans have taken to the high school weight room four mornings a week with renewed vigor and playoff aspirations. “We know it’s the dog days of summer and there’s a lot of other stuff these kids could be doing, but they know it will pay off and they’ll see it in September,” Spartan coach Andy Grimm said. This summer’s “Bigger, Faster, Stronger” program has arguably been the most well-attended since off-season training began under former coach Neal White. The current program started in June and will go until the team officially turns out for the season in mid-August.
