Playing on a sluggish infield for the first time at the Fairgrounds got a few Lady Trojans on base Tuesday against Central Kitsap but it didn’t get them across home plate in a 2-0 loss to the cross-district rival Lady Cougars.

“It’s a very slow infield that we’re not used to,” said CK coach Bruce Welling after the game.

Olympic managed five hits but didn’t advance past second base, all in part to a gem of a pitching performance by CK’s Erika Quint who struck out 10 batters.

“Every outing has been like that,” Welling said of his ace. Quint improved to 2-1 for the season.

On the other side of the diamond, Oly coach Rachel Davenport was miffed at her team’s defense which committed two costly errors.

“It was a poorly executed game,” Davenport said. “Physical errors are going to happen but mentally we played poorly.”

When the Lady Trojans did get on base, they ended up stranding too many runners, another aspect that drew their coach’s ire only a day after they had plastered a 12-2 win over Port Angeles.

“We didn’t execute any strategy at all,” Davenport said.

CK and Oly play their final game as Narrows League rivals on April 24 at Linder Field.

Tennis

CK’s girls picked up their third win in as many days as they knocked off Olympic 4-1 Wednesday at the Fairgrounds.

Leading the charge for the Cougars were singles players Aya Sugimoto and Nicole Morrison and the doubles teams of Katherine and Sachi Sugimoto and Corinne LeTourneau and Sabrina MacDuff. Olympic’s No. 3 doubles team of Cassie Winter and Jill Groulik were the Lady Trojans’ lone winners. The loss was Olympic’s third this week but it did get them their first point after sweeps by Bellarmine and North Kitsap.

Thanks to some good weather, Klahowya’s tennis team finally got in some matches, defeating Northwest Christian 4-1 on Tuesday before losing a close match 3-2 Wednesday to Cascade Christian. Against the Lady Cougars the Lady Eagles won both doubles matches but were swept in singles play.

LACROSSE

The Eagles continued on their quest of dominance of Division 2 play as they crushed South Kitsap 13-7 on the Wolves’ home turf. Nick Holm, Seth Hertenspein and Jim Repasz each had three goals and keeper Chad Reeder made 13 saves. The Eagles outshot the Wolves 29-20.
