PHS Sports update

Peninsula Seahawk class of 2022

Daniel Shurr, Sports Writer

Happy New Year! While Outlook may have been inactive over holiday break, the world of PHS Athletics was not. 

Friday, December 20th: Varsity Girl’s Basketball played host to the Capital Cougars. It was a nail-biter of a game, the week leading up to the game, nearly all of PHS fell ill with the flu, or some other illness. That didn’t stop your Seahawks from putting up a  fight against Capital, but falling by three points to the Cougars 55-52. Who knows how this game would have ended if the Seahawks were playing at one hundred percent.

Friday, December 20th: JV Girl’s Basketball played a very solid game against Capital, resulting in a 41-29 Seahawk Victory. That was their last game before the Holidays, and it was certainly a way to end 2019 for the JV squad. They now look forward to 2020 and the remainder of the season, along with all of the wins that will come with it. 

Friday, December 20th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball Hit the road to take on conference rival Capital. It was a fairly low scoring game for Varsity, and one of the teams had to win, unfortunately it wasn’t Peninsula. The Seahawks battled, but took the “L” 48-55. Against the Cougars. 

Friday, December 20th: JV Boy’s Basketball made up for Varsity’s mistake, and beat the Capital Cougars 47-42 on the road. It was a nice way to keep the already strong season going for JV

Friday, December 20th: C-team joined JV and Varsity on their trip to Capital, but didn’t bring home a win, instead they kept it close, but lost 41-39 on the road. 

Saturday, December 21st: Varsity Girl’s Basketball had an out of conference game at Todd Beamer High School, which is located in Federal Way. The girls just couldn’t keep up with Todd Beamer, taking their fifth loss of the year 59-45. It was rough sight to see, but the loss still didn’t shake the Seahawks confidence. 

Thursday, December 26th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball had a rough game against Kentwood highschool. The Seahawks played hard, no doubt about it. But Peninsula lost 73-49 to the 4A school. This game was one of three in a tournament. (But for some reason the location isn’t mentioned on the SSC Website, so thanks for that SSC editor.) 

Friday, December 27th: It was game two of three for Varsity Boy’s Basketball, this time they faced off against Lindbergh High School, out of Renton Washington (there is also one in St.Louis but I don’t think they played that team.) The Seahawks let up a season-high 76 points against the Lindbergh Eagles while Peninsula managed to put up a mere 52. It’s a rare occasion, where the Eagles actually managed to beat the Seahawks. You can understand that joke by reading our article about the NFL wildcard round (link below) 

Saturday, December 27th: Varsity Girl’s Basketball had a tournament over in Sumner, and they actually got to play the team that hosted the tournament. (Which usually doesn’t happen.) It’s another rough sight to see, but this time Peninsula took their 6th (and hopefully last) loss of the year against the Sumner Spartans 55-74. 

Saturday, December 28th: Varsity Boy’s basketball played their third and final game in the tournament that is still yet to be named. (Thanks SSC) But after three losses in a row, the Seahawks saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and made a dead sprint for that light. Peninsula matched up against Chief Sealth. Peninsula fought hard, and snapped their losing streak, taking care of Chief Sealth 59-50. After the tournament, the Seahawks resumed conference play, where they currently sit in fifth place in the South Sound Conference.

Sunday, December 28th: After back to back losses, the Seahawks had a lot of frustration. They were playing Kennedey Catholic, and were the clear underdogs against the basketball guru. It was time for the Seahawks to show why they are the reigning SSC champions, and ball out. And ball out they did. The Seahawks dropped a season-high 76 points against the 4A School, to a mere 48 from Kennedy. The Seahawks can use this momentum on Wednesday the 8th at 7pm, as they resume in conference play against the Central Kitsap Cougars. 

Wednesday, January 8th: Varsity Girl’s Basketball resumed conference play, and hosted their first SSC opponent of 2020. They played extremely well, defending their home court against the Central Kitsap Cougars 68-48. A twenty point win is fantastic from every angle. (Unless you’re CK.) The Seahawks were propelled by a huge game by Linsey Lovrovich and Piper Bauer, both team captains and showing why they are deserving of that title. The Seahawks look to find plenty more blow out wins, as they climb the ranks in the conference. 

Wednesday, January 8th: JV Girl’s Basketball played a solid back and forth game against the Cougars, pulling out a win on the home court 40-33 against Central Kitsap. Another solid win for JV as they keep the wheels rolling. 

Wednesday, January 8th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball had a rough night against Central Kitsap. While the girl’s took care of the home court, the boys team could not get the job done on the road. Losing 57-39 against the conference rival. Not the best way to resume conference play, but Peninsula still sits at 2-3 in conference play, and has a decent shot to make a postseason appearance, but Coach Robles has to start rallying his team sooner, rather than later.

Wednesday, January 8th: JV boy’s Basketball had a close matchup against Central Kitsap, but took the loss 53-49 against the Cougars. A four point loss isn’t the worst outcome ever, but it still isn’t the win that the team was hoping for. 

Friday, January 10th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball played a solid game against the Timberline Blazers, defending the home court 56-47. Peninsula lead for the entire game, and at one point was up by 18 points in the second half. Timberline started chipping away at the Seahawk lead, and came within three points in the final two minutes. The game felt a lot closer than the game indicates, but Coach Robles’ Hawks heald their own on the court. The Seahawks will sta home to Host the 10-2 Gig Harbor Tides in a game that has been deemed “Fish Basket” Tip off for this game is at 8pm. 

Friday, January 10th: JV Boy’s Basketball had a rough game against Timberline, JV simply couldn’t come up with any answers for the Blazer’s offence as Peninsula fell 66-57. They will stay home to take on Curtis High School on Monday at 6:30pm. 

Friday, January 10th: Varsity Girl’s Basketball played in a shootout against the Timberline Blazers, they marched into Timberline High School and took the win 80-73 against the Blazers. The Varsity Girl’s will stay home to take on the cross town rival Gig Harbor Tides on Wednesday the 15th, at 6:30 pm. 

Friday, January 10th: JV Girl’s Basketball Marched into Timberline H.S and took the win, 47-33. JV will play Gig Harbor at home at 3:30 pm.
