Quite a trick: Klahowya's Crisman tops century mark

Senior Hilary Crisman scored three goals, giving her 101 for her career, as Klahowya defeated Steilacoom 4-2 in a Nisqually Leauge girls soccer playoff game Monday, Oct. 29.

Crisman assisted on the Eagles' fourth goal as Klahowya defeated the host Sentinels. The Eagles earned the league title with the win and advance to a district playoff game Thursday, Nov. 1, against either Foster or Vashon. Junior forward Brittney Hintz also added a score for Klahowya.

Cross Country

Eagles off to state — Klahowya’s taking a team to the state cross country meet for the first time in school history.

The Eagles, led by individual champion Chris Swanson, won the boys title at the Class 2A West Central District Cross Country Championships on Thursday, Oct. 25, at Fort Lewis.

“I’m pretty excited about it,” Klahowya coach Marty Krafcik Jr. said. “It has been a battle at Klahowya since I’ve been there just to get kids to turn out for cross country.”

Swanson, a senior who won the Nisqually League title the week before, covered the 3.1-mile course in 16:23. Teammates Cameron Gaskill (17:09) and Kyle Ryan (17:20) placed sixth and eighth. Jason Hippe and Casey Masters round out the Eagles’ boys team. All but Swanson are freshmen.

The Eagles beat Foster by 19 points.

Klahowya’s also sending two girls to the state meet, Nov. 3 at Pasco. Mary Moore ran her best race of the season, placing second in 21:02, seven seconds back of winner Laura Trevellyan of Vashon. Klahowya’s Rosie Meeker was fourth. The top five individuals advanced to state.


Shelton 21, Bremerton 19 — Bremerton was eliminated from postseason contention with the loss to the Highclimbers.

Knights quarterback Joe Bollinger threw touchdown passes to Noah Garguile and B.J. Ray, and running back Anthony Ragsdale also scored a touchdown for Bremerton. But a Bollinger came up just short on a two-point conversion attempt, which would have tied the game, in the third quarter.

The Knights (4-3 in Narrows League play, 4-4 overall) close their season with a crossover game against Lincoln (4-3, 5-3) of the Bay Division.

Klahowya 20, Vashon 3 — The Eagles won their first game of the season behind the three-touchdown effort of running back Rory Lee.

The junior opened the scoring with a 60-yard, first quarter romp. Vashon scored a field goal later in the quarter, but subsequent Lee scores in the third and fourth quarters gave Klahowya insurance. Klahowya (1-7) hosts Sequim in both teams’ season finale on Friday, Nov. 2.


CK advances to district — Central Kitsap again will advance to the West Central District tournament despite a pair of losses in the Narrows League tourney on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The Cougars clinched a return trip to districts by downing Stadium 2-1 on Thursday, Oct. 25. Game scores were 11-15, 15-7, 15-6.

The regular season Narrows League Bridge Division co-champions then lost two straight during action Saturday at Lincoln High School in Tacoma. Bellarmine Prep knocked off the Cougs 2-0 (15-5, 15-4), and Central settled for the sixth seed to districts after a 2-1 loss to North Kitsap.

Central Kitsap coach Gordy Bushaw said unforced errors on Saturday cost his team a shot at a higher seed.

“Half of Bellarmine’s points in the first game were from our errors,” the veteran CK coach said. “We didn’t wake up until halfway through the second game against North Kitsap. We’ve played better than that all year.”

District play commences on Friday, Nov. 2, at Bethel High School. As the No. 6 seed, CK will open the tourney as part of a pool that also will include the No. 2 team from the South Puget Sound League and South Kitsap, the second seed from the Narrows.

“That (play at the Narrows tourney) hasn’t been typical of us,” Bushaw said. “We’ve got a week to really get our heads turned around.”
