Monday, September 23rd: JV Football has dominated the gridiron this season, as JV took on the North Thurston Rams. Peninsula took the game 38-0, an absolute blowout against the Rams. JV has played stellar defense so far this season, shutting out Fife in week one, and again this week, this time allowing no points to the North Thurston Rams. PHS takes on Shelton on the road on the 30th, in hopes of another dominating win. 


Tuesday, September 24th: Varsity Girl’s Soccer played host to the Yelm Tornados. After a close and unfortunate loss to North Thurston, the Seahawks returned back to their winning ways. The game resulted in a final score of 5-1 and  in dominating Seahawk victory, propels the team to a record of 3-1. The Seahawks would like to keep on track in preparation for their next game, which will be away against Capital, at 7pm. 


Tuesday, September 24th: JV Girl’s Soccer ended in a tie last week, but this week’s home game against Yelm resulted in a much better outcome. Fantastic performances on both offense and defense lead the Seahawk to a 6-2 triumphant win over Yelm. It’s nice to see both JV and Varsity win at home, let’s hope that both squads can march into Capital and defeat the Cougars. 


Tuesday, September 24th: Varsity Girl’s Volleyball resumed regular season play against the undefeated Capital Cougars, after a dominating performance at the TPCVOB Invite on Saturday. The Seahawks played hard, but unfortunately fell to the Cougars with a score of 3-1. Ironically with the first loss on the year the Seahawks record is now 3-1 and are currently sitting third in the South Sound Conference, right behind the cross-town rival Gig Harbor Tides. The team will hit the road again on September 26th to rebound against the Central Kitsap Cougars. 


Tuesday, September 24th: JV Girl’s Volleyball put on a strong performance in a close game against the Capital Cougars. JV pulled ahead and pulled out a win 2-1 against the conference opponent. JV stays on the road with Varsity as they take on The Central Kitsap Cougars on the 26th. 


Tuesday, September 24th: Boy’s Tennis has had a dominant season so far, atop of the south sound conference at 3-0. Tennis continued their winning ways against the Timberline Blazers. Shutting out Timberline and taking the match 5-0. Another dominant performance for our Boy’s Tennis team. They will hit the road against the North Thurston Rams on September 26th in search of another win. 


Tuesday, September 24th: Girl’s Swim and Dive hit the road to take on Lakes High School. The Seahawks showed Lakes who’s boss, and won the match 131-45. Girl’s Swim and Dive remain undefeated on the season. The team looks to keep winning as they look to take over the Mukilteo invite on September 28th. They resume the regular season on Tuesday October 1st at 3:30 pm at home against Capital. 


Tuesday, September 24th: Boy’s Water Polo participated in a tournament on the 21st, and went 4-0 in the tournament, winning in dominant fashion. Unfortunately the regular season has not been as kind to the team. Currently sitting at 1-3 and in the middle of the conference, the boys finally picked up their first win. The game was at home against Stadium High School. Finding themselves down in the last few minutes Peninsula needed to kick it in gear. Four points and a team rally later Peninsula picked up their first win of the season with a final score of 8-7. Peninsula Will hit the Road against Kentridge High School On the 26th in search of their second win. 


Thursday, September 26th: Boys Tennis keeps on rolling as they traveled into North Thurston to take on the Rams. Peninsula showed up and showed out, winning the match against North Thurston 3-2. Peninsula is 5-0 at the top of the South Sound conference and will host the Central Kitsap Cougars on October first. 


Thursday, September 26th: Boy’s Water Polo was coming off of their first win of the season at home against Stadium High School. But hitting the road against Kentridge High school brought challenges to the team, and an unfortunate outcome. Peninsula fell to Kentridge with a final score of 13-9. Peninsula has not had the greatest season in team history but there is still plenty of season left to play. Sitting at 1-4 (excluding tournament play) the Seahawks need to pick it up if they have any hopes of making this season one to remember. 


Thursday, September 26th: Girl’s Volleyball strayed on the road after an unfortunate loss to the undefeated Capital Cougars, this time taking on the Central Kitsap Cougars. The Hawks were able to put their single loss behind them and rebound on the road against the Cougars, winning the match with a final score of 3-1. Peninsula is 4-1 and second in conference play behind Capital. Peninsula will come back home for their game on Tuesday, October 1st, at 7:15pm, which will be against the 1-4 Timberline Blazers. 


Thursday, September 26th: JV Volleyball has been stride for stride with Varsity so far, actually JV has remained undefeated on the season. Well, until now. JV hosted the Central Kitsap Cougars, and tasted defeat for the first time this season. A hard fought match resulted in a 2-1 loss for the Hawks. JV also stays home on the first to host Timberline, this time at 5:45 pm.


Thursday, September 26th: Varsity Girl’s Soccer has had every possible outcome this season. Three wins on the season, a lone loss against North Thurston, and now the teams first tie on the year. The Girl’s traveled to Capital High School to take on the Capital Cougars. Ninety minutes later the team found themselves with their first tie on the year 3-3 against their conference rival. On October 1st PHS hosts the Central Kitsap Cougars, at 7:00pm. Let’s hope for a win to get this team rolling.


Thursday, September 26th: JV Girl’s Soccer looked to take the stage against Capital, the lights were on, the players were hyped, and the game was… cancelled. Perfect. No immediate reasoning as to why the game was postponed but the JV squad is looking past it and preparing to host Central Kitsap on the first at 5:45pm. 


Friday, September 26th: The Friday Night Lights were on for Peninsula Football action as the Seahawks looked to defend their home turf for the annual homecoming game. This week the Seahawks took on the Shelton Highclimbers who were winless up to this point. Shelton stayed winless on the year as Peninsula was able to pull off a dominant 55-0 shutout win over Shelton. Peninsula struggled on offense in weeks one and two, but it seems that Peninsula has found their rhythm moving the ball. After putting up 38 points against North Thurston a week ago, a 55 point win supports the idea that the offense has started to get into a groove. The team hits the road on Thursday, October 3rd to take on the 1-3 Timberline Blazers. Kickoff at 7pm.
