Sports Roundup -- Home pool advantage for Sparts at Relays/Kickers down C. Kitsap, 5-2

Home pool advantage for Sparts at Relays

The familiar waters of Ray Williamson Pool held the Spartan girls swim and dive team in a warm embrace Saturday.

The girls opened their season by winning the 17th annual Spartan Relays in six-way competition. Bainbridge won seven of 10 events to earn 61 points, followed by Snohomish with 53, South Kitsap (41), Marysville-Pilchuck (26), Central Kitsap (20) and Sehome (18).

“For a first meet, everyone swam really well,” coach Greg Colby said. “The intensity by all our girls was great.”

The quartet of April Isa, Keziah Beall, Tessa Griffin and Anne Scott turned in a state-qualifying time of 1:42.49 in the 200 free relay. In the 400 free relay, Scott, Griffin, Isabel Williams and co-captain Sarah Gleason also recorded a state qualifying time of 3:45.27.

Thirty-one girls swam for the Spartans.

The team traveled to South Kitsap on Tuesday; its next home meet is Sept. 24 against Eastmont of East Wenatchee.

Kickers down C. Kitsap, 5-2

Bainbridge recorded two hat-tricks – one for goals, the other assists – as the varsity girls soccer team downed Central Kitsap 5-2 Monday afternoon.

Zena Hemmen scored in the fifth, 55th and 75th minutes for the Spartans, playing under clear skies on a cushion turf field.

Kelsey Devereaux added two goals for the Spartans, and Jenine Adam assisted on three scores.

“This was a well-played match that was not near as physical as the North Kitsap game,” coach Mark Grindrod said.

The coach praised the play of Lindsey Montoya, Alana Macwhorter, Lizzie Seligmann and Ashley Waplinger for their efforts on defense.

The Spartans faced Seattle Prep on the road yesterday, and host Holy Names in a 5:30 p.m. varsity contest on Thursday.
