Olson scored three times in the second while Dylan Masi had two goals. The defense and goalie Bryce Stevenson did the rest, keeping Curtis scoreless for most of the second half.

In the fifth inning, Eldan Ball got on board when he was hit by a pitch, then stole second, advanced to third on a ground ball, then scored on a passed ball.
The boys soccer team didn't get the breaks it needed as they lost to Mercer Island 2-1 in a winner to state game.
Dylan Tucker-Ganges scored in the eighth minute off a pass from Kyle Scoble, but the Islanders tied it up, then in the 48th minute, Derek Johnson put one in after goalkeeper Alex Bolt collided with a Bainbridge defender as all three were going for the ball.
