Daniel Shurr, Sports Writer

Tuesday, December 10th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball looked to rebound at home after back-to back losses to start the year. They played against the Union Titans, and it was a rough game. There’s no sugar coating it, the team got beat, and beat badly. The Hawks kept it close for about a minute before the game started to get out of hand. Unfortunately Peninsula lost the game 72-30. The Boys went winless in out of conference play, and now will be battling for the South Sound Conference. They have a home game on Wednesday against Shelton. 

Tuesday, December 10th: JV Boy’s Basketball Hosted Union, in a 46-69 loss at home. It was tough but the team can come back,  they play Shelton at home on the 11th.

Tuesday, December 10th: C-team Boy’s Basketball played Union at home and fought hard to the end, losing the game 58-45. All three teams lost on the 10th, but all three teams are sure to play better against Shelton

Tuesday, December 10th: Girl’s Bowling just started updating their score schedule on (better late than never) and come to find out the girls are sitting towards the middle of the conference with a record of 3-5. Most recently the team beat Shelton 3-2 at Shelton, after suffering a 4-1 loss against Shelton at home. It is worth noting that the Bowling team also destroyed Gig Harbor 5-0 at home last week. They play North Thurston at home on the 12th. Side note: Why don’t we have guys bowling? That would be really fun.

Wednesday, December 11th: Varsity Boy’s Basketball, after a loss against Union, started conference play at home against the Shelton Highclimbers The game seemed out of reach, as at one point the Seahawks trailed by 15. The team started clawing back, but a few last second mistakes sealed the 48-52 Shelton victory. It is worth noting that the Seahawks changed uniforms for this season, rocking a brand new primarily white jersey with green trim. They are winless while wearing this new jersey. Coincidence? You decide. Varsity will voyage to North Thurston to play the Rams on Friday, the 13th at 7PM.
