On Thursday, we published news that the West Seattle High School fastpitch softball team is headed for the playoffs after winning the division championship (remember their Walking Taco Night event tonight) … this morning, we have news of the WSHS varsity baseball team also taking its division and preparing for the playoffs. Here’s the report from Assistant Coach Scott Meaker:
West Seattle High School Varsity Baseball has concluded their regular season by sweeping West Seattle rival Chief Sealth H.S. 10-0 on Monday May 3rd, and 13-3 on Wednesday May 5th. West Seattle finished the season in first place in the Metro League, Sound Division with a 13 – 4 record. This marks the 12th time in 13 years that West Seattle has won the Sound Division title under long-time head coach Velko Vitalich, a West Seattle Alum from the class of ’73.
West Seattle opens the Metro League Tournament by hosting Seattle Prep Monday at Hiawatha Sports Complex at 3:30 PM. The Metro League Tournament runs through the week ending on Friday at Southwest Athletic Complex (SWAC) on the campus of Denny Middle School. The first and second place teams earn an automatic berth into the state tournament of 16. The 3rd place team will play the 2nd place team from Kingco 3A for another berth in the 16 team state tournament. That tournament begins Saturday May 22nd in four venues around the state. The final 4 teams will play in Safeco Field May 28th & 29th.
