North Kitsap has all the tools to be a favorite to win the Olympic League 2A title and make a deep run into the playoffs.

The Vikings just can’t overcome the one foe that seems to creep up every year — injuries.

North is currently without All-Olympic League first-team guards Olivia Selembo and Lauren Weins but they are expected back. That has forced NK coach Penny Gienger to tinker with her lineup, allowing more players to see court time. That could work in North’s favor come the second half of the season.
