The 2006 spring sports season came to a thudding close this weekend as the remaining South Kitsap athletes saw their seasons come to an end in disappointing fashion.
Junior Renard Williams, who qualified for the Class 4A state track & field meet in two events, failed to place in either. Williams finished a surprising 15th in Saturdays shot put competition after a 13th-place finish in the discus Friday.
Williams threw 47-feet, 9-inches in the shot, his best event, which was about eight feet short of his season best.
He had hoped to set a new school record with a throw of 60 feet.
Williams recorded a throw of just 132-07 in the discus, finishing 13th overall.
Souths Nick Taylor, who competed in the javelin Saturday, did not place but uncorked a personal best throw of 160-8, well past his mark of 155-9 last week at the West Central District meet.
Taylor, also a junior, finished 14th.
Duren makes quick exit: Charlotte Durens first trip to the Class 4A state tennis tournament was a short one. The South Kitsap senior lost both her matches during Fridays opening day the Vancouver Tennis Center and was bounced from the double-elimination tournament.
Duren fell to Marie Demerath of Inglemoor 6-2, 6-0 in her opening match and then dropped a 6-4, 6-2 contest to Stanwoods Angie Schonberg to end
