The Spartans’ girls junior varsity basketball team has seen some tough sledding for the first third of the season.
With five games in the books, the Bainbridge JV team’s record stood at 1-4.
The Spartans opened the season with losses to Port Angeles (37-21) and Bishop Blanchet (43-26), but bounced back to outlast North Kitsap 37-33 on Dec. 9.
Holy Names Academy put Bainbridge back on a losing skid, with a 32-12 Metro win, and the Roosevelt Rough Riders galloped past the Spartans in their matchup earlier this month, 32-28.
The Spartan JV team returns after the holiday break with a three-game road swing before returning home.
First up is Central Kitsap on Friday, Dec. 27, followed by Seattle Prep on Friday, Jan. 3 and then next-day contest against Franklin on Saturday, Jan. 4.
