Sports roundup | Sept. 15
The boys travelled across the pond Tuesday and coasted to an easy win (154-37) over Franklin at Jefferson Park Golf Course in Seattle.
Carl Jonson and Will Whealdon were one under par, each shooting a 35. Bobby Griffin shot an even par 36, and Jack Seidl and Rusty Furth posted 39. Alex Raquer shot 40 and Davis Harrison and Kyle Schneider finished with 41.
The Spartans opened the season with another dominating win, defeating a Franklin team that only used three girls against Bainbridge's six. Both teams had to battle adverse conditions as the greens at Jefferson Park Golf Course we're being sanded, leading to an increasingly difficult putting surface.
Bainbridge's Julia Gross posted the low round of the match, shooting a 41.
Anna Bourland carded two pars and two birdies while Julia Gross had four pars and Peyton Lunzer, Jasmine Shattuck, and Annika Van Houte had three pars each.
The team kicked off its season with a split of games against Central and North Kitsap last week. The Spartans were shut out 2-0 in the opener against Central Kitsap Thursday, but the team rebounded to take down North Kitsap 5-2 Saturday.
In the first half of Saturday's game Veronica Saez scored the Spartans' first goal on a corner kick from Emma Vukic.
In the second half the Spartans took over, scoring four goals. Haylee Baker scored after a free kick by Lauren Silvers. After setting up her teammate earlier in the game, Vukic got a goal of her own on a break away. Kendyl Daniels and Hana Newman each scored a goal off a cross pass.
The soccer team hosts Lakeside Thursday at 5 p.m. and Olympic Saturday at 11 a.m.
The swim team got off to a good start last week, defeating Camas 103-80. Bainbridge won nine of the 12 events. The highlight of Friday's meet came from freshman Sarah Grundman, whose time of 5 minutes, 22.47 seconds in the 500-meter freestyle was fast enough to qualify for state. Her run was 26 seconds faster than the second place finisher.
The next day, Bainbridge hosted the annual Spartan Relays. Marysville Pilchuck High School won the relays for the first time in its history, with Bainbridge finishing a close second. The Spartans scored 46 points to Marysville Pilchuck's 52. Bainbridge won five of the 18 events. Bainbridge did defend its title in the 150-meter innertube relay.
The Spartans won their second straight match last week, defeating Olympia 25-16, 26-16, 25-25, on Sept. 10.
Saturday, the Spartans entered the Puget Sound Invitational. The team finished 22nd in the tournament. Head coach Julie Miller said the players scrambled to switch the lineup with Jo Shea unavailable for competition that morning. In pool play, Bainbridge split three matches and lost the other three. In the second half of the tournament, the single elimination portion, Bainbridge defeated Chiawana, 25-16, 25-19, before bowing out to RA Long in a one-game match.
