Fall baseball has wrapped up at universities around the country, allowing the Kitsap BlueJackets to all but finalize the team’s 2008 roster. Matt Acker, BlueJacket’s head coach, will welcome some familiar faces back to the Kitsap Fairgrounds Ballfields and expects some of the names to change before the season begins.

Whew! Vikings have a near-brush with defeat

The North Kitsap varsity boys nearly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory Wednesday night as they skimmed by with a 44-42 victory against the Port Angeles Roughriders. In a contest that afforded no breathing room whatsoever, the Vikings were “kind of doing our own thing. We weren’t really focused on the team concept,” said 6’7’’ senior Taylor Hoffer. “But a win’s a win.”

For the 14 weeks bookended by September and December, the 9- to 11-year-olds on the North Kitsap Explosion ’96 team called the soccer field home. And in their home, they reigned supreme.

Kingston nets decisive win against Roughriders

KINGSTON — That’s no typo on the Kingston Buccaneers varsity girls’ basketball roster. Sophia Baetz, the 5-foot, 7-inch point guard who led the team’s 58-38 win against Port Angeles on Jan. 4 really is a freshman.

Second half is a tough one for Bucs

KINGSTON — Aaron Lawrence has David’s size and Goliath’s heart and it shows on the basketball court. The Kingston High School’s varsity boys basketball player, all 5 feet, 5 inches of him, managed to sink 18 points during the Buccaneer’s home 86-48 loss to Fife (Tacoma) on Jan. 8. And yes, he always plays like that.

Kingston girls get it done against Fife

KINGSTON — Kevin Strozier has a message for teams headed to Kingston High School to play his varsity girls’ basketball team: Welcome to Kingston and you had better be ready to play. His message to his team? Play hard from start to finish — the game isn’t over until the buzzer screams. Nothing punctuated this more than the Bucs’ at-home 60-33 victory over Fife.

Two out of four ain’t bad

PUYALLUP — Sometimes, second place is just fine for Kris Goodfellow, head coach of the combined North Kitsap and Kingston high schools’ varsity gymnastics team. Especially when only one point separated her gymnasts from Rogers High School of Puyallup — the same Rogers that placed fourth in last year’s state meet.

The buckets just wouldn’t fall

POULSBO — The North Kitsap High School Vikings just couldn’t get their shots to sink in their 61-47 home loss to Foss on Jan. 9. “They were a really good basketball team. I wasn’t surprised at all,” Head Coach Tony Chisholm said of Foss. “We didn’t turn the ball over so that didn’t cause the loss. The loss came down to missed shots. We played well enough on defensive end to win. It’s unfortunate that to win the ball has to go through the rim.”

Look out districts, here come the Fab Four

Perhaps there’s too much chlorine in the pool these days at the North Kitsap Community Pool. Or maybe the North Kitsap/Kingston (NKK) swimmers have been hanging out with each other too much and are starting to share personalities. Whichever the case, it’s working for the 400-relay team of Josh Despard, Justin Roulanaitis, Ryan Eggers and Tyler Rencher, who are going into next week’s district meet with a qualifying time of 4:02, according to head coach Greg Braun.

PORT ORCHARD — Patience was the word most frequently uttered by South Kitsap boys basketball coach John Callaghan before New Year’s Day. But when the Wolves opened January with a loss against Bellarmine Prep, he said inexperience no longer was an excuse and it was time for his team to produce.

POULSBO — Bill Hobaugh is considering holding his pre-game meetings in the trainer’s room to better accommodate his varsity girls basketball team. He’s only half-kidding. The Vikings lost at home against the South Kitsap Wolves Thursday night, 52-35. Nearly all the starters are injured in one way or another, with ankle and thumb injuries being the most popular afflictions. But these are not the kind of athletes who make excuses for themselves, and Hobaugh is no exception.
