(WSB photos by Patrick Sand)

6:47 PM: Meet the champs! The Chief Sealth International High School slowpitch softball team won the Metro League title this afternoon, 16-4 over Cleveland, at Southwest Athletic Complex. More photos and info to come.

8:23 PM: (corrected) Leitu Faga pitched a complete game for Sealth. She also hit a 3-run homer in the second inning. Sealth was so far ahead, the game was called after 5 innings because their lead surpassed 10 runs.

This was Sealth’s first league-championship game in any sport in eight years. The team has non-league games left in the regular season – here’s the schedule.
