Wolves shine at California meet

Wolves record fast times at California meet

From Independent staff reports

South Kitsap’s Katie Rosapepe, Sam Godfrey, Shyla Coleman and Melanie

Cobb turned in the second fastest time in school history in the 4-by-

1-mile team relay last week at the Arcadia Invitational held in

Arcadia, Calif.

The girls turned in a time of 23 minutes, 11 seconds to finish in 15th

place in the invitational division.

The boy’s team of Justin Schenck, Joe Daniels-Hall, Nate Jones and Sean

Coleman covered the same relay in a time of 18:40, good enough for 17th

place and also the school’s second-fastest time ever.

Both teams ran against some of the best teams in the country as the

Arcadia Invitational hosted over 1,000 of the best athletes from 27

states.

The entire SK track team returned to action late Friday with a meet in Silverdale against Central Kitsap, Bremerton and Port Angeles. The Wolves travel to Port Angeles Thursday for a dual meet with PA and North Kitsap.

• Tennis team moves to 4-1 with pair of wins: South Kitsap junior Charlotte Duren won two matches without losing a single game this week to help the Wolves’ tennis team to wins over Port Angeles and Central Kitsap and a 4-1 season mark.

Duren downed Shannon Casad 6-0, 6-0 in SK’s 4-1 win over Port Angeles Wednesday and topped Courtney Foos by the same score Monday as South beat CK 3-2.

In Wednesday’s match with PA, South’s Senya Waas also won her singles match 6-0, 6-0, beating Kelsey McCrorie while the doubles teams of Maria Smith and Stephanie Davison and Emily Ader and Melissa Watson also won their matches.

In Monday’s match with CK, Davison, South’s top singles player, blanked Aya Sugimoto to sweep the singles play but the Wolves needed Chelsea Senter and Waas to win their doubles match to take the team match.

South, 4-1 on the year, faced Olympic late Friday and will go against Gig Harbor at home on Monday.

• Wolves get physical with Olympic in 4-0 win: South Kitsap scored three times in the first half and then added a late goal in a very physical second half to move to 4-1-1 on the year.

Corey Kelmel got the Wolves on the board with a goal in the 20th minute while Ward McDonald made it 2-0 13 minutes later off a feed by Nolan Kalkwarf. Tyler Penn and Chris Lewis closed out the scoring for South. Nick Boone got his second-straight shutout and third of the year.

“It was our best effort all year,” coach Eric Bergeson said. “It was pretty physical in the second half but that was because both sides were competing.”

The win puts the Wolves into first place in the Narrows League Bridge Division with 13 points. Gig Harbor (12 points) and Central Kitsap (10 points) play each other Monday night. South faces Shelton Tuesday and travels to Silverdale to meet CK on Thursday.

South Kitsap 4, Olympic 0

First half: 1, SK, Corey Kelmel, 20th minute; 2, SK, Ward McDonald

(Nolan Kalkwarf assist), 33rd; 3, SK, Tyler Penn (penalty kick), 38th.

Second half: 4, SK, Chris Lewis, 79th.
