Midseason roundup: Seamount League

Teams in charge

Too many to count.

OK, not really, but four teams are still unbeaten in Seamount League play – Mount Rainier (4-0, 4-0), Hazen (4-0, 4-1), Kennedy Catholic (3-0, 3-1) and Lindbergh (3-0, 3-1).

Kennedy is still the clear favorite, and I didn’t think much about it when the Lancers lost their opener to 4A Puyallup – but the Vikings are 0-3 since. Still, they’re the team to beat, in my book.

Mount Rainier is young, young, young with a bright future. But the Rams have their sights on right now.

Hazen and Lindbergh have stayed in position by beating Renton (1-2, 2-2), a team many thought would emerge as No. 2 in the league. Now the Indians will really have to battle for a playoff spot.

Teams in the playoff hunt (4 berths)

See above.

Really, it appears to be a five-team race for four spots, but Evergreen (1-3, 1-3) will be no pushover the rest of the way now that player numbers are up following some eligibility issues. And Highline (0-4, 0-4) is better than its record might indicate. Remember, the Pirates lost by only three to Lindbergh and one to Mount Rainier (and by 25 to Kennedy).

Big-numbers guy

L.J. Jennings of Kennedy has had a hot start, rushing for 430 yards on just 32 carries (13.4 yards a pop) in three games. Remember, one of JFK’s wins was a forfeit from Tyee.

Key games

Just about every game the rest of the way for the top five teams will be important, but here’s a few I’ll have my eye on:

Lindbergh @ Hazen, Friday, Oct. 2

Hazen @ Mount Rainier, Oct. 16

Mount Rainier @ Kennedy, Oct. 29

Prediction

This time, I think I’ll pick ’em out of a hat, but here’s a stab at how the top half of the league might look when all is said and done, in order: Kennedy, Mount Rainier, Lindbergh, Hazen. Renton could sneak in there, but those losses the last two weeks really hurt.
