SEATTLE LUTHERAN HS BASEBALL TEAM @ STATE: Also at 10 am, state-tournament play begins for Seattle Lutheran High School. The preview is from Joe Puckett:
On Saturday, Seattle Lutheran will continue the quest for its third 2B state baseball championship in the last 5 years. The first game is at 10 AM in Adna against Toutle Lake. If Sealu prevails, they will face the winner of the game between Napavine and Tri-Cities Prep later in the afternoon. A win in the second game would mean that the Saints would move on to the 4-team finale on May 31. Here is a link to the entire bracket for the 16 teams remaining in the hunt for the championship.
