Snowy weather postpones high school games
Bremerton and Central Kitsap School District high schools have to wait to compete again. The snow postponed all after-school activities and games for Bremerton and Central Kitsap school districts Tuesday. The boys basketball game between Bremerton High School and North Kitsap High School was rescheduled for 7 p.m. Friday in Poulsbo. Other postponed events have yet to be rescheduled as of press time. Meanwhile, the Klahowya Secondary School boys basketball team had its Jan. 7 home game against Port Townsend High School stopped with 6 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Water fell from the roof, creating a slippery hardwood for the athletes. Klahowya Athletic Director Todd Winters wrote in an e-mail that the school is having issues with the gymnasium’s roof.
