Thursday events

Snow resulted in the closure of the South Kitsap School District on Thursday, which automatically resulted in the cancellation of all sporting events.

South Kitsap’s boys basketball team was slated to host Lincoln, while the girls basketball team was set to travel to Tacoma to play the Abes.

The Wolves’ boys swimming team also had a meet scheduled at Central Kitsap.

Athletic director Ed Santos said he hadn’t heard back from his coaches Thursday afternoon about rescheduling events.

But with the winter break approaching and several teams involved in tournaments during that time, Santos said all three events likely won’t be rescheduled until after the New Year.

GH holds on

to edge SK

One of South Kitsap’s biggest wins in boys basketball last season was its one-point home victory against Gig Harbor.

The Wolves now know how it feels to be on the other end of that as the Tides captured a 53-52 Narrows League win Tuesday at Gig Harbor.

South (4-2 overall, 2-2 league) trailed for most of the game, but made a fourth-quarter run. Tionne Curry, who scored a team-high 15 points, was called for an offensive foul with nine seconds left to end the Wolves’ comeback hopes.

Gig Harbor (2-3, 1-3) was led by Austin Jenkins’ 17 points, while Mike Longmire added 10 points for the Wolves.

South converted just 14 of 24 free throws.
