  • Jun 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 12:21PM

While Bremerton’s soccer team fell shy of coach Randy Lund’s preseason goal of making the playoffs, the Knights finished the 2008 season with plenty to remember.

Senior captain Ritchie Danskin and sophomore midfielder Matt Olson both earned honorable mention accolades.

Bremerton baseballers end rough high school careers on high notes

  • Jun 7, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 12:21PM

It’s been a rough tenure for Eli Olson, Noel Frederick and the rest of the Bremerton Knights baseball team across the past three seasons. While the Knights have combined to go just 5-45-1 since the duo were sophomores, both were given the opportunity to end their high school baseball careers on a high note, with both Bremerton ballers earning spots on the Olympic League roster at the 41st Kitsap Peninsula Senior Baseball Games at the Kitsap Fairgrounds Ballfields on June 5.

Despite team losses, 3 Bremerton hardballers make All-Kitsap squad

  • Jun 14, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 12:21PM

The diamond hasn’t been kind to Bremerton’s hardballers the past few seasons. But coach Ken Plowman, who just wrapped up his first year at the helm, appears on track to buck the losing trend. While the Knights finished the 2008 year with a losing record (3-16 overall, 3-13 league), the team showed signs of life, pulling out the occasional win while keeping most games close. Senior Eli Olson, who will play ball at Olympic College next year, offered the Knights’ underclassmen valuable experience on the field. Fellow senior Noel Frederick provided power, speed and consistent hitting in the middle of Bremerton’s lineup. Sophomore Brett Brown emerged midway through the season as a key player at the varsity level and will return next season, looking to pick up where he left off. For their efforts on the field, Olson, Frederick and Brown all earned bids on the 2008 All-Kitsap County Baseball Team, with Olson making the first team.

Bremerton fastpitch duo gets honorable mention on all-county squad

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 12:20PM

Bremerton’s softball team had a rough year to say the least. The Lady Knights weren’t able to land a victory, ending the season 0-16. While the team came up empty in the win column, it showed perseverance by overcoming a coaching change midway through the year. It also rebounded from a midseason fold in 2007 that saw the team fall prey to off-field issues. Seniors Dechante Heggie and Britnay Mason set positive examples on the field, keeping the ’08 Lady Knights competitive. Athletes like Heggie and Mason were two bright spots in an otherwise tough season. That’s why both girls earned honorable mention on the 2008 All-Kitsap County Softball Team.

Former South Kitsap pitcher now catches for Olympic College

  • Jun 21, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jul 4, 2008 at 12:20PM

The field at South Kitsap High School didn’t look much different than the last time he stepped onto it. It was the vantage point that had changed. David Hammrich, a 2006 South graduate, returned to Port Orchard earlier this month as a member of the Olympia Athletics, a feeder team for the Kitsap BlueJackets. Both are summer-league teams for college players. When Hammrich was a senior at South, he started at cornerback and on the pitching mound for the Wolves. The latter led him to Auburn’s Green River Community College. Two years later, he’s a catcher at Olympic College.
