NK’s Humphrey, Klahowya’s Hartford win league MVPs

A pair of Kitsap basketball players earned league most valuable player honors as the All-Olympic League team selections have been made.

Klahowya’s John Hartford and North Kitsap’s Shaa Humphrey each earned the boys 1A and 2A MVP’s respectively in leading their teams to league championships.

Humphrey, a junior, was the leading scorer and second-leading rebounder on North Kitsap’s 2A state tournament sixth place team. The Vikings finished the year with a 23-7 record and returns all five starters next year. Humphrey is joined by Kobe McMillian on the first team and junior Logan Chmielewski on the second team.

Hartford, one of the Eagles’ most consistent scoring threats, helped lead the team to a 15-7 record, including a perfect 6-0 in league play, and a berth in the West Central District III 1A tournament. Klahowya’s season came to an end with a loss to Vashon Island. Fellow senior Gabriel Smith, the team’s point guard, and senior forward Lucas Becker were also all-league selections.

Olympic High School earned two first-team selections in junior Caleb Morgan and senior Brandon Barron.

On the girls side, North Kitsap had a pair of first-team all-leaguers in Noelani Barreith and Raelee Moore. Barreith and Moore were first and second on the team in scoring in leading the Vikings to the regional round of the state tournament.

Grace Johnson was a second-team all-league pick for North Kitsap, along with Kingston freshman Ellee Brockman and sophomore Kylee Walker. Brockman and Walker were the Bucs’ top two scorers this season.

Klahowya’s Katie Cooper, a sophomore forward, was the lone Eagle picked for the Girls 1A all-league team.
