SK season comes to a grinding halt

The Jekyll and Hyde season endured by the South Kitsap High School girls basketball team ended with the death of Dr. Jekyll Friday night.

The Wolves (11-12) watched their season come to an end in a 46-38 loss to the Kentridge Chargers in a loser-out West Central District matchup at Foss High School.

The inconsistent Wolves had hopes of getting through the consolation bracket after an opening round loss to Kentlake.

For three and a half quarters, SK’s season didn’t look to be in peril.

SK trailed just 38-37 with five minutes to go, but Kentridge finished SK off with an 8-1 run.

SK coach Mike Allen said his team played better against certain types of teams and Kentridge was one type he thought his team should have defeated.

Though SK’s suffered shooting woes, Kentridge was equally bad. The difference came with offensive rebounds, which Kentridge dominated for the majority of the game.

“That was costly to us,” Allen said. “We worked and prepared for it but we just didn’t do it.”

The truth of the season came with the team’s streaky outside shooting.

“Obviously we play better when we shoot the ball well,” Allen said. “We didn’t shoot the ball very well (Friday).”

The loss ended the prep careers for seniors Jamae Feddock, Kristin Myles, Stephanie Robinson, Kristi Utter, and Melissa Ballard. Allen said he appreciated the time and effort his seniors put into the season.

“They did some work for us, which I appreciate,” Allen said. “Jamae will be a tough player to replace. Her scoring and rebounding will be missed next year.”

Feddock registered a double-double against Kentridge with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

No other SK players scored in double figures.

Loni Tostenrude chipped in eight points and added 11 rebounds and four steals.

SK was relegated to outside shooting because of the defensive presence of Kentridge’s Krystal Robinson, who added seven blocks to her 10 points and 16 rebounds.

Kentridge out-rebounded SK 56 to 39.
