2005: The year in sports


The Battle of the Bay turned 25 in January of 2005, as the Olympic Trojans increased their historic lead over Central Kitsap to 14-11 in the cross-town battle. The milestone meet included an instant classic when Olympic’s AJ Weber and CK’s Daniel Mayfield went head-to-head, with Weber emerging on top, with a pin in 4:46.

Erika Quint, who helped lead the CK softball team to districts, enjoyed a shining regular season moment when she pitched a perfect game against Sequim on Tuesday, March 22. Quint struck out 13 in the effort, her second no-hitter at CK.

The Whaling Days fun run, Whale of a Run, turned 25 on Saturday, June 30, with a record turnout of more than 820 runners taking part in the annual race that ties itself to Silverdale’s top summer festival. Chris Swanson of Bremerton won the men’s race while Silverdale’s own Kim Reiland won the women’s.

The Klahowya Eagles softball team had one of the most interesting weeks of any team in any sport in 2005, when they threw a no-hitter and were no-hit in a span of just three days in May. On Monday, May 2, the Eagles fell 13-0 to Chimacum in five innings, failing to record a single hit. But just two days later, Wednesday, May 4, the Eagles took that frustration out on Vashon, winning 16-5 in an unbelievable no-no. Vashon was able to score five runs with no hits, taking advantage of walks and errors to find home plate.
