Wildcats’ softball team heads to state
May 23, 2012

The Mount Si High School softball team is heading to state this year, but the path getting there included two polar opposite days in the 2012 Sea-King District Softball Tournament.
The Wildcats faced off against West Seattle at the Lower Woodland Park ballfields May 16 and came away with a 10-0 win.
That win put the team up against Seattle Metro’s undefeated Bainbridge High School.
The Wildcats delivered the Bainbridge Spartans’ first loss of the year, 6-3.
The second day of tournament play on May 17 did not go so well for the Wildcats.
Mount Si lost, 8-6, against Lake Washington, and then 8-2 against Liberty High School.
The losses won’t prevent Mount Si from going to the State 3A Softball Championship beginning May 25 at the Regional Athletic Complex in Lacey, but it will affect who they go up against.
The draw, held May 20, pits Mount Si (17-6) against Kamiakin (22-0) in the first matchup at noon May 25.
The last time these two played in March, the Kamiakin Braves won, 13-2.
