Eisenhardt to play for Seattle U.

Ben Eisenhardt, a 6-foot-10 senior who led Bainbridge High School in scoring last season with 13.9 points per game, has verbally agreed to play basketball at Seattle University.

Eisenhardt was an All-Metro League second-team selection during the 2007-08 season. He also averaged 8.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.2 blocks per game.

BHS Coach Steve Henderson said Seattle is a good fit for Eisenhardt athletically and academically, and it was important that the school is close to home. He is the son of Ted and Kellan Eisenhardt, owners of Bainbridge Athletic Club.

“He’ll be the guy for us this season,” Henderson said. “He’s very skilled for a big man. He shoots well, passes well. ”

The Bainbridge High girls’ golf team finished regular-season play Wednesday with a 7-1 record after defeating Bishop Blanchet 112 to 94 at Wing Point Golf and Country Club.

The team also defeated Eastside Catholic 109-89 on Tuesday at Wing Point.

Anna Bourland captured her fourth medalist honor in eight matches this season by shooting a 2-over-par 38 – good for 34 points. She had five pars and one birdie for her second-best score of the season.

Bainbridge’s Peyton Lunzer scored 29 points to tie her best result of the season. Freshman Jasmine Shattuck shot her best score of the season with a 26, while classmate Julia Gross scored 23 points for her best point total of the season.

On Tuesday, Bourland totaled 33 points to place one point behind Eastside Catholic’s Kimmie Koehler. Spartans Ryan Nottingham and Lunzer scored 31 and 23 points, respectively.

The team plays Tuesday in the first round of the Metro League Tournament at Seattle’s Jefferson Park. The team will consist of senior captain Nottingham, juniors Bourland and Lunzer, and freshmen Shattuck, Gross and Maddy Devlin. The tournament will conclude on Thursday, and will serve as a qualifier for the district tournament next spring.




The Rookies jumped out to an early 13-point lead with touchdowns on a 10-yard pass and 70-yard run.

Mt. Si scored six points late in the first quarter and tied the game on its first series of the second half. The Bainbridge defense stiffened after that score, allowing only eight total yards the remainder of the game.

The Rookies scored winning touchdown on a 13-yard run with just over a minute remaining in the game. They rushed for 169 yards on 19 carries, average 8.8 yards per carry.

The Bainbridge team will put its two-game winning streak on the line Saturday at Strawberry Field Park when it faces an undefeated Juanita team.
