Scullers solid at Lake Stevens Regatta

Spartan sluggers battle for third place
Locked in a battle for third place in the Metro League’s Mountain Division, the BHS baseball team split four games during a five-day stretch. Following an 8-2 loss at Inglemoor on Saturday, the team rebounded to knock them off 4-3 Monday. Though the Spartans outhit Lakeside 10-5 on Friday, they dropped a 5-2 decision to the Lions. The day before, Bainbridge crushed Sound Division-leading West Seattle 17-0.
Girls raise season record to 10-1
The BHS softball team tuned up for yesterday’s rematch with Holy Names – who handed the team its only defeat thus far – with two wins and a forfeit by Ingraham, to raise their season record to 10-1. The Spartans routed Lakeside 15-0 in a mercy rule-shortened five innings on Friday. Lindsay Willman drove in five runs with a homer and double and scored three times, while Brittany Wisner had a pair of RBIs. Lauren Reichert threw a one-hitter and struck out six.
West Seattle gave Bainbridge all it could handle on Thursday, holding the Spartans to two runs through five innings and notching a run in the top of the sixth. But Bainbridge erupted for four runs in the home half of the sixth and won 6-1.
Boys best Seattle Prep after 11-day layoff
While the final score might not suggest it, BHS boys soccer coach George Vukic felt that his team’s 4-0 victory over Seattle Prep did indicate a certain amount of rust following an 11-day layoff from game action. “In my view, it was much closer than a 4-0 game,” he said. Kenji Queva’s early goal gave the Spartans a 1-0 halftime lead. Queva, Kyle Scoble and Alex Raquer each added second-half tallies.
BHS WATER POLO
Strong offense leads to win over Kentridge
Paced by Anna Wood’s six goals and three steals, the girls water polo team defeated Kentridge 15-6 on Tuesday. Jeanette Swanson had four goals, Alicia Konkel three and Taylor Gawlik two. The team beat Newport 6-5 on Friday, though the Spartans had to endure some anxious moments. With 45 seconds remaining, Wood scored her third goal for a two-goal edge but Newport scored within a few seconds. Bainbridge managed to retain possession until the shot clock ran out with two seconds remaining. The Knights’ final shot from half-court careened off two Spartan defenders and the ball fell just shy of the net.
