2013-2014 Prep Sports Recap

The high school sports season wrapped up on Saturday so let’s take a look at how everybody fared this season.

There was one team state titles this year, brought home by the Northwest Christian girls cross country team, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering they’ve won eight straight 2B titles.  A few teams took second place in state: Capital volleyball and boys soccer, Timberline girls bowling, Tumwater football and girls track and field.

For individuals, Brooke Feldmeier led the way with three state titles. The Ole Miss bound Tumwater senior won 2A titles in the 100 meter hurdles, the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter dash.

Four individuals won multiple state titles. Capital junior Ryan Chase won two 2A titles for long jump and triple jump, Northwest Christian senior Karen Bulger took 2B titles in javelin and shot put, River Ridge junior Dejuan Frye won the 400 meter dash and was part of the first place 4×100 meter relay team and Tumwater sophomore Peyton Russell took home titles in long jump and triple jump.

And area wrestlers didn’t fare too bad. Jake Grantham took home the 3A 220 pound weight class title for North Thurston, Rochester’s Lucas Eastman won a 1A title in the 152 pound class, Yelm’s Darren Harris won the 4A 120 pound class title and Tumwater’s Megan Johnson won the 155 pound girls title.

Below are all the league champions, teams that participated in state tournaments and individuals that placed 5th place or higher. State champions are in italics.

Gonzales hosts second annual charity tournament

Capital graduate and awesome facial hair owner Andres Gonzales will host the second annual Andres Gonzales Charity Golf Tournament at the Tacoma Golf and Country Club in Lakewood on September 17th, reports Todd Miles. Gonzales, who currently sits in fourth on the money list on the tour and will likely play again on the PGA tour next season, raised $60,000 for pancreatic cancer awareness and the First Tee of South Puget Sound during his first tournament last year. For more information including how to sign up, read more from The News-Tribune.

Today (6/9): Tourneys time; PSCL play four; Underground Derby championships; Racing

It’s another huge day of sports in the South Sound. It all starts early in the morning with the Capitol City Men’s Amateur Golf Tournament. Jon McCaslin has won the tournament three times in a row and The Olympian has a preview article featuring Tumwater High School alum Kyle Schrader. Tee off for the tournament at Capitol City Golf Club is at 7:30 AM.

Shortly after tee time, the Friends of Mia Alumni Soccer Tournament gets underway at South Sound Stadium. Soccer alumni from Black Hills, Capital, North Thurston, Olympia, River Ridge, Shelton/Yelm, Timberline and Tumwater gather to honor Mia and raise money for childhood cancer. First kick of pool play is at 8:45 AM. The semifinals start at 2:15 PM with the finals kicking off at 4:15. Everybody is invited to the post tournament party and benefit at Faith Community Center at 6:00. For the full schedule and more information, visit the Oly Sports post from yesterday. All events are free and donations will be accepted.

And the tournaments keep on rolling along with Budd Bay Rugby’s 20th annual Tatunka 7’s Tournament at The Evergreen State College. The tournament used to coincide with Evergreen’s Super Saturday but even after the elimination of Super Saturday, the tournament continues on the Saturday before graduation. The action gets underway at 10:00 AM.

If golf, soccer and rugby aren’t enough for you, the Puget Sound Collegiate League plays a baseball quadruple-header on Saturday. First up at noon, the Tumwater Brewers take on the West Olympia Linx. Then at 2:30, the Brewers play game two against the Nisqually Silvers. In the evening games, the Lacey Saints and the Olympia Athletics play two starting at 5:00 PM. All four games take place on the wonderful turf surface at the Regional Athletic Center. All PSCL games are free.

Golf, soccer, rugby, baseball. What else could you want? How about some championship roller derby action? Skateland! will be rocking when the Underground Derby League has their interleague championships. The Rolling Regulators, Fembots, Oly Outlaws and South Bay Bombers will battle it out to see who takes home the hardware. Tickets are $15 at the door, doors open at 6:00 PM and derby action gets underway at 6:30.

And finally, weather pending, petrolheads (I’ve been watching a lot of Top Gear on BBC America lately) get their fix this weekend at South Sound Speedway. Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, FSCRA and Legends start qualifying at 5:00 PM with racing getting underway at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $12 at the gates.
