SPORTS BRIEFS: Peninsula College Rainbow Six team wins

State parks announces winter schedule

PORT ANGELES – The Pirates Rainbow Six team defeated Barton Community College, out of Great Bend, Kan., 2-0 on Monday to highlight Peninsula College esports action this week.

The Rainbow Six team improved to 2-2 in National Junior College Athletic Association Esports play.

“After the two losses to Hawkeye (Community College), they adjusted their play style to be more aggressive and it looks like it’s paying off,” head coach Charlie Morrow said. “I’m very impressed with how they played, especially Connor West, who clutched the match point for game two! Yay Connor!”

In Fortnite play Monday, Jake Coulson led the way for the Pirates, capturing fourth place in a field of 50.

The Smash Bros team, however, had a rough Tuesday, as all five Pirates fell to their opponents.

State Parks goes to winter schedule

OLYMPIA — Washington State Parks today announced its 2020-21 winter schedule, with more than 100 parks remaining open for camping or day-use activities.

The winter schedule is available online at www.tinyurl.com/winterparks. More than 100 parks will remain open during the winter, while about 22 parks are closed until dates in March, April or May.

State parks offer ample opportunities for those who enjoy camping in the winter months. Campgrounds that remain open are less crowded, and more campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, most parks offer offseason rates.

Reservations for 2021 are accepted for arrival dates between May 15 and Sept. 15. The following parks accept year-round camping reservations:

Bay View, Belfair, Cape Disappointment, Dash Point, Deception Pass, Dosewallips, Fort Casey, Fort Worden, Grayland Beach, Ike Kinswa, Kanaskat-Palmer, Kitsap Memorial

Lake Chelan, Millersylvania, Ocean City, Pacific Beach and Rasar.

For parks that are open in winter but don’t accept reservations, campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis only.

For those who aren’t keen on camping in the winter but like the idea of getting away to the outdoors, many state parks cabins and yurts are open and available by reservation. Cabins and yurts have heaters and electric lights. Some have bathrooms. Guests bring their own bedding.

Reservations may be made online, or by calling 888-CAMPOUT (888-226-7688).

Even though most of Washington’s state parks are open year-round, some parts of the park may need to close temporarily due to inclement weather, repairs or other reasons. People can check on current park conditions on the State Parks Online Alert Center at tinyurl.com/winterparks. People can also sign up to receive e-mail alerts for the parks of their choosing.
