"The Olympic High School fastpitch team faced a long, hard road in the Olympic League Class 4A tournament, which began Friday at Poulsbo.But at least the Trojans went into the tournament with some momentum. They closed out their regular season Wednesday with a 2-1 victory over Central Kitsap, handing the Cougars their first league loss in two years.To advance to next weekend's West Central District tournament, the Trojans needed two wins Friday - first over Bremerton, then over the host Vikings - then two road victories Monday over league runner-up Port Angeles.But the win over 10-time defending league champion CK certainly got Oly pointed in the right direction.NIna Rosario and Crystaleann Santos had back-to-back singles to drive in the winning runs in the fourth inning for Olympic. The Cougs countered with a run in the fifth, but then were silenced by sophomore Celeste Kajiyama, who held them to three hits while striking out five.Jackie Quint, also a sophomore, struck out seven Trojans in her four innings of work. Rosario had two of Oly's five hits.The Cougars already had wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the league tourney. They'll host the finale Tuesday at 3:45 p.m. against the winner of Monday's game at PA. Both of Tuesday's combatants advance to the WCD tourney May 18-19 at Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway.King's West 23, North Beach 0: The Warriors' trip to the coast turned out to be pretty much a vacation, as they scored 18 runs in the first inning and pummeled the Hyaks into submission after three.Susan Cooper didn't allow a hit and KW's defense didn't commit an error. The Warriors advance to a 9 a.m. Tri-District game today against Wishkah Valley at Centralia.GolfJohn Hausdorf shot a 4-over-par 75 to lead Central Kitsap to a 138-124 victory over North Kitsap in the two teams' league finale Thursday at Kitsap Golf and Country Club.Dylan Robbins (77) and C.J.
