Making sense of the ever-changing South Kitsap sports landscape.
A look at the playoff picture for South Kitsap sportsNovember 1st, 2013 at Fri, 1st, 2013 at 4:36 pm by chrischancellor
Here is a glance at how the playoff picture is shaping up for South Kitsap’s athletic programs:
One South runner, Mason Villarma, will compete at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Westside Classic District meet at Lakewood’s American Lake Veterans Golf Course in hopes of earning a berth to the Nov. 9 state championships at Pasco’s Sun Willows Golf Course.
The Wolves must defeat Central Kitsap by at least eight points tonight and have Yelm upset Olympia to earn a spot in the Class 4A state play-in game. Otherwise, they will play in a nonleague game against a 3A Narrows team next week to close out their season. South athletic director Ed Santos said the opponent probably would be Foss or North Thurston.
South either will be the third or fourth seed out of 4A Narrows. That means the Wolves, who must win twice in the West Central District Tournament to advance to the state playoffs, will play Thursday at Curtis High School. If South secures the league’s third seed, it will play at 5 p.m. against 4A South Puget Sound League South Division’s No. 3 team. If the Wolves are 4A Narrows’ No. 4, they play SPSL South’s second seed at 7 p.m.
The Wolves’ Zoe Desmet won the 100-yard freestyle during last week’s 4A Narrows League championships and advances to compete at today’s and Saturday’s West Central District meet. Events begin at 4:30 p.m. both days at Curtis.
South must win twice during Saturday’s 4A Narrows League Tournament to advance to districts. Its first match is at 10 a.m. against Central Kitsap at Mount Tahoma High School.
