High-school baseball: West Seattle HS beats Lakeside

Last year, West Seattle High School’s baseball team went to state – this year, they’re off to a good start, reports Greg Slader, sharing the photo and this report (thanks!):

West Seattle wins over Lakeside 3-1. Sam Hellinger (top photo) pitched a complete game, giving up only one run on three hits and no walks. Solid defense and timely hits helped West Seattle to a 3-0 lead as they cruised to their first win. The Wildcats are 1-1 on the season and 1-0 in league play.

(Spencer Elder makes the play)
Next game is Thursday against Lakeside, before they head to Safeco Field this Saturday @ 4 pm.

ADDED 10:17 PM: Slider reports in comments that WSHS softball beat Lakeside today too, 9-1.

    Admission is free for the game this Saturday at Safeco Field between West Seattle and Kentridge.

    Additionally, The West Seattle High School Baseball Booster Club is selling tickets to the June 3, 2013 game between the Mariners and White Sox for $10 per ticket.

    These tickets are sold in order to allow the West Seattle High School baseball team to play at Safeco Field next year as well.
