Four North Kitsap Little League teams win district softball tournaments

NORTH KITSAP — For the first time in the 66-year history of North Kitsap Little League, four softball teams have won district championships.

Teams in the 8-10 year old, 9-11 year old, little league and junior league all won their respective districts in late June and have competing in state tournaments at various locations throughout Washington during the month of July.

The 8-10 Year Old team, managed by Mike Martin and coached by Chanel Fake and Jonathan Martin, went undefeated in their district tournament, winning their final game 8-5. This team advanced to state for the third year in a row and is so far 3-1 at the tournament in Cheney. The tournament was still on-going as of press time, but the team can finish no worse than fourth.

The 9-11 Year Old team, managed by Aaron Stanford and coached by Chris Miller and Nick Feltis, had a direct route through districts as the only team that entered and advanced to their state tournament, which begins July 14 in Shoreline.

The Little League (majors) Softball team, managed by Jordan Armistead and coached by Russ Schucart and Kelley Syverson, went undefeated in their district tournament, winning their two games by a combined score of 36-0. They participated in the state tournament in Vancouver, Wash., and finished tied for fifth place.

The Junior League team, managed by Jeff Beaudoin and coached by Andy Fredericksen and Matt Venneman, took third in their state tournament, which was held at Snider Park in Poulsbo. They were the only team entered into their district tournament and subsequently took the crown for the first time since 2015.
