Spartans swat North Kitsap in girls basketball

Bainbridge bounced back from a sluggish first quarter and exploded in the second on the way to a 79-38 win over North Kitsap Monday night in girls basketball.

The Spartans held the Vikings to just eight points of scoring in both the third and fourth quarters, and BHS outscored North Kitsap 37-16 in the second half.

The Spartans' Grace Kenyon led all scorers with 27 points.

Sydney Severson chipped in 12 points for Bainbridge, and Maddie Ketcheside and Kate Usellis contributed seven points each. Julie Feikes and Nancy Karreman both finished with five points, while Sydney Gibbs added three.
