  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:59PM

Filing out of the dugout early Friday evening after losing their second game at the state 3A fastpitch tournament at Tacoma’s South End Recreation Area, the Bainbridge Spartans were obviously disappointed that their stay wasn’t as long as they wanted it. But Coach Steve Nelson looked at the upside as he contemplated the end of the season: “It’s over, but it’s just the beginning.”

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:59PM

With 300 meters to go in Saturday’s Northwest Regional Junior Championships in Vancouver, Wash., the Bainbridge Island Rowing Club’s boys’ four-oared shell with coxswain was in fourth, about two lengths behind the lead boat. “Generally things don’t change much at that point,” said coach Jay Trinidad. Bainbridge made an exception. “They just exploded,” said Trinidad.

Fastpitchers make comeback, advance to State

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:59PM

After self-destructing in the final innings of Friday’s District 2 Fastpitch Tournament opening round game against West Seattle – the team with the worst record coming into the tournament – the Spartans appeared to be headed for a premature exit after entering with high hopes. To qualify as the No. 5 seed to the state tournament at that point, the girls had to win four successive loser-out games in a 23-hour period.

Lacrosse boys reclaim state title

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:59PM

For opposing teams, the most frightening thing about the Bainbridge A lacrosse team’s 14-6 thumping of Mercer Island on Saturday to reclaim the state title trophy may have happened after the game. After the entire team happily hoisted the trophy for a barrage of pictures, someone yelled, “Seniors only.” Only five members of the 23-man roster stepped forward. As newly elected tri-captain Spencer Evans and a first-team all-state selection said, “We’ll be even better next year.”

The top score was 84, which is high.”

'A' team's plan comes together

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:58PM

When the boys A lacrosse team played Maple Valley last week to complete the regular season unbeaten, they opened the game by scoring three times in just over two minutes en route to a 14-2 rout. But on Wednesday’s rematch in the semi-final round of the state tournament, Bainbridge didn’t even touch the ball during that same span. It hardly mattered. After playing on virtually even terms for much of the first quarter, Bainbridge scored three goals in less than three minutes, then exploded for seven third quarter scores and won handily 15-2.

The loss dropped the Spartans to third and set up a first-round playoff game on Monday at 3:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium against Hale. A win against Hale would set up a Wednesday afternoon game with Metro runner-up Seattle Prep. A loss would end the team’s season, which featured an undefeated April following an undistinguished 2-2-2 mark in March.

With Luke Speidel running 50 seconds flat in the first leg, the team began the race with a huge lead and clocked 3:27.1 to break the previous Spartan standard by more than two seconds.

Oarsman joins elite winner's circle

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:57PM

Last Thursday, Erik Brand drove into Seattle to pick up an oar. But it wasn’t any old oar. More than 12 feet long and weighing about five and a half pounds, it was the same carbon-fiberglass oar that the 1994 BHS grad pulled in the 2000 Oxford-Cambridge crew races. Brand was seated #4 in Isis (Oxford’s University’s #2 eight-oared shell) which defeated Goldie (the equivalent boat from arch-rival Cambridge) in the annual renewal of a rivalry that began in 1836. The course consists of more than four miles of twists and turns along the Thames River in London. By tradition, each winning rower gets his oar as a souvenir, and it took nearly two years to arrive here.

Not very friendly -- Spartans tie Eastlake

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:57PM

What soccer coach Alex von Reis Crooks termed “a far-too-physical ‘friendly’” (a non-league game) ended in a 2-2 tie at Eastlake on Thursday. Bainbridge jumped out to a 2-0 lead, scoring in the 20th minute on Adam Brenneman’s direct kick after a penalty and in the 43rd minute on Kaj Hauschulz’s goal, assisted by Mitka von Reis Crooks. Eastlake, one of the leading teams in the 4A Kingco League, tied the score on a pair of penalty kicks, though von Reis Crooks was critical of both calls.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:57PM

Like many other islanders, Josh Anderson enjoyed watching the women’s downhill ski race during the recent Winter Olympics. But Anderson, who turned 18 last month, had a special interest in the competition: he’d raced virtually the same course during the Utah Winter Games in December. “It was cool watching it during the Olympics,” he said. “It’s an awesome course and I said to myself, ‘I did that.’

Girls back in the swing of things

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 7:57PM

The fastpitch team swung to extremes on successive days, losing 12-2 at West Seattle on Tuesday before annihilating Cleveland 17-2 at home on Wednesday for the team’s first Metro League win. Both games were called after five innings due to the 10-run rule. “What happened today should have happened yesterday,” said coach Steve Nelson after Wednesday’s game. “West Seattle is almost the same as Cleveland. They just had better pitching, and we played that game on Astroturf. Our infielders had a hard time fielding the ball, and they became tentative.”
