Fastpitchers eager to head back to state

  • Mar 5, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 7:13PM

Spartans want to make their case as a title contender. Mention the word “Sammamish” to anyone and they may think you’re talking about the town, the lake or the tribe itself. Mention the word “Sammamish” to the Bainbridge fastpitch team and you’ll get an entirely different reaction. “We talk about it all the time,” said Brittany Wisner of their near upset of the Totems last May, only to have it taken away on a bad call. “But we’ve learned from it and we’re just going to take it and hopefully learn from it this year and do better this year.”

  • Mar 22, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 7:13PM

Spartans feel the team will be that more dangerous in the Metro League. Everything was going wonderful for George Vukic this season. The second-year head coach had several players returning from a soccer team that just missed out on making it to the state tournament last season and was looking forward to having senior midfielder Dylan Tucker-Ganges, his top player, around for possibly the entire season as his select team lost in the state championship a few weeks ago. But one phone call last week from the state’s most prestigious soccer program changed all that.

Tennis works through obstacles

Construction, loss of 15 seniors won’t hold Spartans down. It hasn’t been all smiles and sunshine for head coach Mike Anderson and the Bainbridge tennis team this season. With the construction of the 200 building still in effect, the Spartans have had to work around the workers (“It’s been a distraction, but nothing we can’t handle,” Anderson said of finding a way to practice on their old courts) and find other places to practice and play. But thanks to the Wing Point Golf and Country Club and the Bainbridge Athletic Club, the team can host some games and have a normal season – somewhat.

Order out of chaos

  • Apr 2, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 7:12PM

Brittany Wisner has overcome a nightmare childhood to be a standout member of the Bainbridge fastpitch team. When people talk about Brittany Wisner, one of the first things they mention is how hard she works and how much she talks – which is quite a bit. “She’s loud, but in a good way,” teammate and friend Lindsay Willmann said. Head coach Liz McCloskey said she was impressed with her from the moment she appeared on the field, even to the consternation of others. “Some people questioned my thought of putting her on varsity because she was very outspoken because some people perceive that as being cocky and having a big head,” she said. “But that’s just her being a leader and loving the game and putting everything she has into it.”
