Last NL meeting on courts for CK, Oly
June 11, 2008 · Updated 5:51 PM
When Central Kitsap and Olympic got together Tuesday in their final Narrows League match against one another, winning became secondary.
Tuesday was all about fun.
Its just a good way to finish the year, CK coach Ken Allen said. Remember, the reason were here is for fun, to have a good time.
Olympic beat CK 5-0 as the Cougars rested its young roster in favor of its seniors, making sure they got to play in at least one varsity match before their high school careers come to a close.
I told them at the beginning of the year, Seniors, dont worry. Well make sure you play some varsity matches, Allen said.
Olympic coach Don Patraw was just happy to see his team secure another win, even though CKs regulars were off for the day.
Our record doesnt indicate the improvement these girls have made, Patraw said, as the win was Olys second this season. Its harder for them to see that than it is for me as a coach.
In one of the days closest matches, Olympics Issa Bruce edged CKs Nicole Kelley 6-4, 7-5 in the No. 2 singles match.
While the match was the last the squads will play, both coaches said theyll strive to keep an annual non-league meeting between the Trojans and Cougs going.
Were still hoping to keep that going, Patraw said. We like the idea that this match would normally be the end of the year.
Well probably continue to play it, Allen added. Im sure having a non-league match with Oly is something well continue to do.
