Sparts drop season finales

Instead of possibly earning a top two seed in the last two games, both Bainbridge basketball teams earned one last home game – but it also means a longer road to take to get to state.

The boys’ basketball team took down Eastside Catholic 53-46 Tuesday, but lost at O’Dea Thursday 61-56.

The loss bumped the Spartans to third place in the Metro League Mountain Division.

“It was a grind (Thursday) night for both teams,” head coach Scott Orness said. “There were 12 lead changes, a ton of guys fouling out, etc. We played well, but just didn’t finish.”

Ben Eisenhardt scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.

Caleb Davis scored 15 points while Jesse Powell contributed 10 points.

The Bainbridge girls basketball team beat Eastside Catholic 52-38 Tuesday for their eighth win in their last nine games, but couldn’t overcome a 21-7 first quarter to Holy Names as they lost 67-59.

With Lakeside’s win over Seattle Prep Tuesday, it put the Spartans in third place.

“They got on us early,” head coach Penny Gienger said. “We played really well in the second half and fought hard to get back, but we just didn’t have enough to overcome those first quarter blues.”

Brittany Gray finished with 21 points, while Emily Farrar added 15.

The boys will host the winner of the West Seattle/Eastside Catholic game Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. while the girls host the winner of the Bishop Blanchet/Cleveland game at 5:45 p.m.

Admission will be charged and is $7 for adults and students without an ASB card, $5 for students with an ASB card, seniors and children under 12.

If Bainbridge wins, they play Saturday to determine the fifth seed, but if they lose, they play Thursday in a loser out game.

All seeding games are at Roosevelt High School.
