Spartans long on leadership -- Winter Sports Preview

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

The third season is generally a key benchmark for a high school basketball coach. By the third year, virtually all of the players on the team have come up under that coach’s tutelage, and the opportunity for optimum payoff on the court begins to show. Spartan boys’ coach Scott Orness enters his third season on the Bainbridge bench this year, and he is excited about the potential on the island hardwood. “I’m very happy with the leadership in the program,” Orness said, after putting the Spartans through a Saturday-morning practice to wrap up the first week of turnouts.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

Emily Silver makes history

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

Zinc. Copper. Cadmium. There are folks who will buy all sorts of purifiers to keep trace elements out of their water. But there was nothing anyone could do Saturday at King County Aquatic Center, no filtration system strong enough, to keep Silver out of the water. On this day -- the 3A state swimming championships -- Silver was contagion, not contaminant. Bainbridge High School senior Emily Silver inspired shrieking, heart palpitations, and a wide outbreak of smiling faces every time she hit chlorinated H2O.

It's nice to be back on the ice

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

As a youngster in Maine, David Parker grew up with hockey. “We had a pond that I’d skate on when I was a kid,” Parker said. “And at the country club they’d flood the driving range, plow the snow and put up hockey boards.” But when the elder Parkers decided that ski weekends at Sugarloaf were going to be a family activity, it was majority rules -- so young David gave up his winter Pee Wee and Bantam games, and traded his hockey skates for a pair of skis. Years later, he played intermural hockey at St. Lawrence University, and the spark returned.

Team Ray seventh at state

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

With two seconds left in the game, one final Bainbridge possession and the score tied at 8-8, Team Ray had one last trick up its sleeve. A coach Mead trick. Senior goaltender Stuart Stringer positioned himself at mid-pool, while the rest of the men’s varsity water polo team massed around the front of the opposing goal like a school of piranha. The Kentridge players were visibly befuddled, looking to their bench and to each other for any clue as to just what the Bainbridge players were planning. Then, like a boat motor gone from stop to full throttle, Team Ray churned water at the whistle, fanning out as Stringer launched a bomb at the goal mouth. The final horn sounded as the ball hit the back of the net, and both the Bainbridge bench and crowd erupted in cheers.

Frosh gridders unleash tsunami in finale

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:11PM

The entire Bainbridge freshman football team unleashed an offensive and defensive tsunami Thursday afternoon against Roosevelt that didn’t subside until the final seconds had ticked off the clock at Memorial Stadium. An interception by Max Kauffman on the opening play riled up the Spartans, who steamrolled the Rough Riders on both sides of the ball in the 41-6 win. Mounting a no-holds barred offensive attack, quarterback Quinton Agosta went to Kauffman for a pair of short scrambles, followed by a just-long pass attempt to Fiore Ala’llima. Agosta, looking to throw on fourth down, ended up darting to within three yards of the first down marker.

That happened as well, and in an impressive conclusion to their undefeated fall season Monday at Druid’s Glen Golf Course, the Spartan fab five played to a decisive district victory.

BHS golfers seven for seven

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:10PM

The Spartan boys golf team has slogged out victories in rain, wind and cold. Monday morning, with looming gray skies and temperatures in the mid-50s, it was looking like par for the course. But the clouds parted to sunshine, and as the first trio of golfers teed off at Wing Point, the wind died down a bit and players doffed their jackets as they walked down the first fairway.

Braves air out Spartan spikers

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:10PM

While Bishop Blanchet front-liner Stephanie Augustavo defied gravity for much of Wednesday night’s volleyball match at Bainbridge High School, the Spartans seemed to have a hard time pulling themselves up off the hardwood. Augustavo repeatedly looked weightless in her kill windup, seemingly floating in front of the net before time caught up with her in a resounding sonic boom of a spike that sent Spartans diving to the floor for digs.

Gridders fall to Eastside Catholic

With thoughts obviously turning toward homecoming festivities the following evening, one of the Spartan kickers chirped, “So, we’re not going to practice tomorrow, right?” Grindrod shot back, “You think we don’t need to practice after a game like that?”

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:10PM

Youth, and a lot of Spartan spunk wasn’t enough to best two-time defending 3A state volleyball champs Seattle Prep, but it was enough to give the Panthers a bit of a jolt Wednesday night.
