PHS Sports Update

Daniel Shurr, Sports Writer

Tuesday, October 29th: Varsity Volleyball came home to play in their last regular season home game, which was against Central Kitsap. It was Senior Night, and the Seahawks wanted to give a special thank you to their three seniors Maeve Griffin, Ryen Hall, and Zoe Erkers for the four years of dedication they put into the game of volleyball at PHS. As for the game, Peninsula saw their first back-to back loss of the year losing 3-1to the Central Kitsap Cougars. Peninsula is still playoff bound, and will play on the road on November first, in their second to last regular season game against Timberline. Let’s finish the season strong!


Tuesday, October 29th: JV Volleyball also played at home on Tuesday, they also saw a loss against CK, 2-1. JV will be joining Varsity on their trip to Timberline on the first. 


Tuesday, October 29th: Varsity Girl’s Soccer traveled to Timberline looking to snag another win this year. Peninsula fought hard but lost a close one on the road 4-3 to the Blazers. PHS will finish the year on the 31st against Gig Harbor. 


Tuesday, October 29th: JV Girl’s Soccer also played away at Timberline. Well, they were supposed to. No game was played. The girls will play at Gig harbor on the 31st. 


Thursday, October 31st: Boy’s Water Polo played their last game of the year, away at South Kitsap. It has not been a season to remember for Peninsula, but the last game saw PHS take out all of their frustration. South Kitsap didn’t have a win all year, and thankfully, Peninsula kept it that way. PHS scored 16 points to win the game 16-6 over South Kitsap. A two win season does not show the talent of this team, but it is certainly better than no wins.   


Thursday, October 31st: Varsity Girl’s Soccer finished the season with an unfortunate 0-4 loss away at Gig Harbor, the girls will make it to the postseason with a 7-7-2 record, where they will play away at Lakes High School. 


Thursday, October 31st: JV Girl’s Soccer played their final game at Gig Harbor, they lost 0-3. JV will not play in the postseason, but expect a few familiar JV names to be called up to Varsity to support the Girls in their run to state. 


Thursday, October 31st: The Varsity football team played their last game of the regular season. They wrapped up the year with a dominant 49-7 win at Capital. The Peninsula Seahawks finished the season undefeated in conference play, and have earned a home playoff game. The Peninsula Seahawks will host the Arlington Eagles at Roy Anderson Field on Friday, at 7:30 PM.


Friday, November 1st: Varsity Girl’s Volleyball visited the Timberline Blazers in hopes to get back to their winning ways. Three sets and a whole lot of points later and the girls walked out of Timberline with their 10th win of the year. The Girls have one more game, which is against Gig harbor on the 5th, at 7:15. 


Friday, November 1st: JV Volleyball was supposed to play Timberline but their game was cancelled. What is it with schools cancelling JV games? JV will join Varsity on their trip to Gog Harbor on the 5th, and will (hopefully) play at 5:15. 


Saturday, November 2nd: Varsity Girl’s Soccer has officially ended their season, after a devastating 1-0 loss to Lakes High School in the playoffs. Both teams played hard, but in the final Minute Lakes scored the game’s only goal to advance to the postseason. Well done by both JV and Varsity to have the season that they had, and Coach Demianiw looks to improve her team for next season. 


Saturday, November 2nd : Girl’s Swim and Dive placed third in the district tournament, over the weekend, all year the girls have been the dominant team in their league, and this performance in districts definitely helped to put PHS on the map. The team is proud to announce that four girls will being swimming at state, Ellie Hood (Senior), Emma Keith (Senior), Reina Nagata (Junior), and Clarissa Sardinia (Sophomore) will all be heading to the King County Aquatics Center to represent the Peninsula Seahawks at state. Good luck to the girls that qualified, we are Peninsula proud of you.
