Sele’s role changes in twilight of career

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:25PM

The 11-year veteran is now a sage for pitchers on the way up. The return of Aaron Sele to the Seattle Mariners in 2005 has seen the Poulsbo native making a contribution to the team both on the field and in the clubhouse. While he’s compiled an up-and-down 6-9 record and posted a 4.70 ERA this season, Sele has also become one of the pitching staff’s veteran leaders, offering advice to a team increasingly reliant on its youth.

A kind of homecoming for Aaron Sele

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:25PM

The Mariners starter recalls his days growing up in North Kitsap. Win or lose, up or down, with a lead or without, Aaron Sele is always on the run to and from the mound. The Poulsbo native and Seattle Mariners starting pitcher never lolls his treks from dugout to hill or hill to dugout. To do so would be a sign of weakness to teammates and opponents – a lapse in the poise he has developed over his youth, collegiate and 11-year professional baseball career.

It’s old home week for Spartan girls hoops

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:24PM

The hoops stars of yesteryear return for an alumnae game and awards banquet. Jack Horishige is a passionate advocate of BHS girls basketball. He believes that despite its obvious successes – including state championships in 1988, 1989 and 1999 – the program has retained a second-class status. “The girls have never been recognized as much as the boys,” he said. But Horishige, who has coached scores of future Spartans at the intermediate school level through AAU programs, is no hand-wringer.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:24PM

The former doubles ace steps onto the grass courts once again. In his new line of work, Pat Galbraith creates a strategy, executes it as best he can, and should he fail, has only himself to blame. “In my business, you’re on your own,” the 38-year-old island stock broker says. “You either sink or swim.” His approach parallels the life he once led in professional tennis, competing at the highest levels of the game with the greatest players in the world.

The Bainbridge Classic celebrates the majesty of the horse. Horses are in Madeline Hepler’s blood. “It’s one of those things,” the 10-year-old rider said of her relationship with Brindy, half thoroughbred, half Dutch warm-blood. “It’s ingrained in my life. It’s a stress relaxer for me. I’ve never been a team sport person. “I like the one-on-one thing with my horse.”
