Wolves end regular season on high note

The game didn’t matter except it was the final home game for a handful of seniors.

Still, South Kitsap High School girls basketball coach Mike Allen would have liked to have seen a better-played game against Shelton last Friday after coming off a gutsy performance in a narrow loss to Central Kitsap last week.

SK used a 20-11 fourth quarter run to turn a close ball game into 55-46 win against Shelton.

SK, fourth in the Narrows League Bridge Division, already knew it was playing a loser-out, winner-to-district game this Saturday at Bremerton High School.

The only question was who it was going to play.

Lincoln cleared up the Bay Division log jam, earning the No.4 seed with a win against Mount Tahoma Friday.

Allen said he hopes his team that played CK, not Shelton, shows up for the Lincoln game

Allen said an entire week of preparation for one team will help.

“We’ve got some videotape (on Lincoln) so we’ll be able to prepare for just one game,” Allen said.

Allen even joked that his team will be so familiar with Lincoln’s offense it may even run it.

Against Shelton, Allen played all his seniors in the first quarter before bringing in starting juniors Loni Tostenrude and Leah Kendrick.

Senior Jamae Feddock stole the show with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Junior Christina Bui had one of her better offensive productions on the floor with 11 points.

One statistic Allen enjoyed the most was SK’s rebounding advantage.

The Wolves grabbed 22 rebounds compared to Shelton’s 13 rebounds.

SK also has shown improvement at the free-throw line, Allen said.

“We’ve gotten a lot better at free throws than we were in the beginning of the season,” he said. “That was really our Achilles’ Heel early in the season.”

Feddock said the Wolves aren’t going to back down on any team.

“We’re pumped for anyone,” Feddock said. “I can’t wait to play Saturday. We just have to play each game like it’s out last game and just go all out for thirty-two minutes. We have nothing to lose.”

SK boys hold off Shelton, win 10th straight

The South Kitsap High School boys basketball team extended its winning streak to 10 games after winning at Shelton 48-38 Friday night.

The Wolves had already clinched first place in the Narrows League Bridge Division, and will play Bay Division No.1 seed Mount Tahoma Saturday at Bremerton to determine the No.1 and No.2 seeds into the West Central District Tournament.

SK played its second game without starter Jake Beitinger, but the Wolves showed its depth again with a balanced scoring effort along with its stifling defense.

Trivone Curry led SK with 13 points and five steals, and Nate Seitz proved again how important his versatility is on the court.

He finished with nine points, seven rebounds, five assists and three blocks

Cody McCulley also had nine points, seven rebounds and five steals.

SK coach John Callaghan said he couldn’t have asked for more out of his defense.

“The guys really played well,” Callaghan said. “Cody McCulley had another great game. He has really stepped up his game. Joe Riley and Joe Summers looked great too.”

SK was able to limit Shelton guard Colby Brewer to just seven points.
