SPORTS: Roughriders no-hit, lose 8-0 to Kingston

PORT ANGELES — Kingston’s Tyler Sullivan was nearly perfect against the Port Angeles baseball team Tuesday.

The right-hander, who will be playing for the Washington Huskies in the future, dominated the Roughriders in an 8-0 Olympic League win.

Only four walks were between Sullivan and a perfect game.

The ace pitcher threw a complete-game seven-inning no-hitter, striking out 11.

The Kingston defense held up its part for a perfect game with no errors.

“Sullivan was as close to unhittable as you can be,” Port Angeles coach Bob Withrow said.

The Buccaneers scored all of their runs in the third inning to blow it open.

Kingston had 14 hits as the Riders fell to 3-4 in league and 3-5 overall.

The bright spot for Port Angeles was relief pitcher A.J. Konopaski, who scattered three hits and gave up no runs in the final four innings.

Konopaski struck out five with four of them looking.

The Riders turn around and play Kingston again today starting at 4 p.m.

Tuesday’s contest was a makeup game.

Girls Golf: Sequim 93, Port Angeles 89

SEQUIM — The Wolves held off the Roughriders in a nonleague match held at SkyRidge Golf Course on Tuesday.

Sequim normally plays at Cedars at Dungeness.

“Honestly, I think Port Angeles is a little bit stronger than we are,” Sequim coach Garrett Smithson said.

“And they are a little bit older. We had a good day of golf. Both teams played well.”

Sequim’s Zoei Zbaraschuk, last year’s female golfer of the year on the North Olympic Peninsula, earned medalist honors with a gross score of 41 on the nine holes.

She led everybody with 31 Stableford points.

Runner-up honors went to Emily Cook of Port Angeles, who had 26 Stableford points, her best score of the year.

Third place went to Sequim’s Kim Duce, who scored 22.

In other Sequim scores, Lisa Doan had 19 Stableford points, Ashley Morton had 11 and Hayley Estes 10.

Lauren Coventon of Port Angeles captured fourth place with 21 points, followed by teammates Tracie DuPuis with 18, Ev Grier with 14 and Madison Baumann with 10.

It was windy for the match but otherwise almost perfect conditions with sunny weather, Smithson said.

The two teams will play for real in a league showdown May 5 at Peninsula Golf Club in Port Angeles.

“That match probably will determine the league title,” Smithson said.

The Wolves, 1-0 in the Olympic League and 2-0 overall, next plays Kingston at Cedars at Dungeness on Thursday.

The Riders play Klahowya at Gold Mountain on Thursday.
