Mount Si junior Hanna Houser gets an intense look on her face while watching an Ingraham batter during the May 15 district matchup. Mount Si beat Ingraham 10-0.

Mount Si’s fastpitch team will not be going onto state, despite an incredible showing during district tournament play.

During the Sea-King 3A tournament May 15, Mount Si faced off against Ingraham at Lower Woodland Park in Seattle.

There the Wildcats put a whoopin’ on Seattle’s Ingraham, beating them “officially” 10-0. In reality, the Wildcats scored two more runs that didn’t count due to the mercy rule.

Mount Si played a couple hours later against Holy Names. And despite a five-run Wildcat fifth inning, Holy Names won 7-6.

The Wildcats had one more chance to qualify for state semi-finals, when they went up against Bainbridge May 16. They lost that battle 5-4.

Coach Larry White was not able to comment on the team’s season because his son was getting married this past weekend, he said in an email.
