Spartan girls make the cut on Kitsap Countys best team.
They play in three difference leagues Metro, Narrows and Nisqually but non-conference play gives Kitsap-area girls basketball players and fans a chance to size up the competition between them over the course of the season.
Here are the 2004-05 All Kitsap Girls Hoops teams, as selected by sports writers from the Kitsap News Group papers.
GJennifer Jacobs, Bremerton The leading girls scorer among area teams, Jacobs lit up the floor for the Lady Knights, averaging 19 points per game. She also stayed among the leaders in assists, dishing out 6 per game.
GAllie Picha, Bainbridge Picha averaged about 15 points, eight rebounds, and three steals a game to lead the Spartans through the Metro League tourney play and into Districts. A specialist when it comes to attacking the basket, her athleticism and intensity make her a top Metro League threat going into next season.
FMegan Hoisington, Central Kitsap The CK powerhouse dominated the middle of the paint this season, helping to open up the outside for the Lady Cougs sharpshooters. Averaging 15 points and 9.5 boards, Hoisington was one of the main reasons CK took home the Bridge crown.
FKristin Anderson, Kings West Anderson does it all for Kings West. And now, she has become the leader behind the Lady Warriors state run. To succeed where they could not last season, theyll need more of the play that has gotten her nearly 14 points per game, more than 9 boards, 5 assists and 4 steals.
FJenna Reed, North Kitsap Reed, a junior, averaged 20 points per game in the Vikings last six contests, a leader in the teams narrowly averted playoff run.
She is sure to be one of the Narrows premier posts next season as a senior.
Megan Spence, Kings West The second rung in KWs power trio, Spence torched competitors inside with 10.9 points and 10.7 boards per game. She is one of the only area players to average a double-double per game.
Emily Zygmontowicz, Central Kitsap Zygmontowicz does what matters most: She finds ways to help CK win. The wily Zygmtonwiczs defense is still her top asset, frustrating opponents with 3.6 steals and superior strength.
Katie Swanlund, North Kitsap Called the foundation of her team by North coach Dan Weedin, Swanlund lead up the squads post with junior Reed, and her unselfish play, attitude and smooth jumper speak for themselves.
Morgan Wiggin, South Kitsap A solid presence in the middle, Wiggin provided the Wolves with tough defense and even tougher rebounding. She could also put up solid offensive numbers from her post position.
Chloe Mosey, Kings West Mosey completes the Lady Warriors brutal front-line, putting up 13.7 points and 8.6 boards per game. Another strong post presence, Mosey completes the KW power trio.
Kayla Bennett, Bremerton Aside from her 12.5 points and 7.8 boards, Bennett brings a ferocity to the hardwood that is unmatched at times. When she gets fired up, it can change the face of a game.
Chelsea Marek, Klahowya Not only did Marek post 10 points and 11 boards a contest, but she took the 0-20 Klahowya girls under her wing, which should help translate into next seasons win column.
Shannon White, Olympic White led all-area girls with almost 6 steals a contest, also putting up 10 points per game. But as a sophomore, more bright spots should appear in Olys future.
Kaitlin Bailey, Bainbridge Baileys intelligence, knowledge of the game and her discipline to improve make her one of the Metro Leagues most hard working and smartest players.
Schelsey Zimmerman, South Kitsap A fiery little defender that could hit the big shot from the outside, Zimmerman led the team in 3-pointers attempted and made.
Molly McCluskey, North Kitsap The vocal leader of the Vikings, McCluskey combined a strong perimeter presence for NK and was one of the best rebounders in the league as a guard.
Kaitlin Poppe and Amy Spieker, Central Kitsap While most players are recognized individually, its only proper to recognize Spieker and Poppe as a duo. The pair have provided leadership that led CK to a 19-1 regular season. Poppe brings superior defense and court sense to the Lady Cougs, while Spieker brings a great swing shot and tough mid-court d. The duo are also seldom seen without a smile on their faces.
Alisha Lindsay, Bremerton Lindsay scored 11.7 per game and snagged nearly seven boards. Shell be a key contributor as Bremerton looks to build on this seasons success.
