BELLEVUE – Filling the KingCo-Metro Crossover slot at the recent 2018 3A KingCo Baseball Tournament, the Bainbridge High varsity boys baseball team bested Juanita in Game 6 on May 12 to earn second place overall — and further cement their shot for the state playoffs.
The Spartans were slated for the matchup after a loss to Lakeside in the 3A Metro League tourney on May 8.
It was a loser-out affair against Juanita, with the winner snagging the District 2 No. 5 seed at State.
The ultimate tournament winner, the KingCo champion bound for State play, was Mercer Island.
The 2018 WIAA 3A State Baseball Tournament begins Saturday, May 19 at various schools around the region and will culminate in the title game at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 26 at Gesa Stadium in Pasco.
First for the Spartans: Kennewick High School in Game 8, a loser-out affair, at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at Pasco High School.
The winner advances to Game 12, at a time TBD on the very next day, also at Pasco High.
