High school baseball
3A Narrows League tournament championship game
North Thurston vs. Timberline – The RAC – 4:00 PM
4A Narrows League tournament championship game
Olympia vs. South Kitsap – The RAC – 6:30 PM
The Narrows League tournament at The RAC comes to a close today with a pair of championship games featuring three Olympia area teams. The action kicks off at 4:00 PM when North Thurston and Timberline meet for the third time this season and continues with Olympia and South Kitsap at 6:30 PM.
North Thurston and Timberline both swept through Narrows League play undefeated until the two teams met on April 19th. The Blazers swept the two game series, winning 5-2 at Timberline and 2-0 at North Thurston to claim the regular season title. The two teams are unquestionably the class of the league. The Rams outscored their league mates 129-10 through 13 games while the Blazers outscored their opponents 113-9 in 12 games. The winner today claims the Narrows League title and the #1 seed to districts while the winner claims the #2 spot.
Olympia suffered just one loss in the 4A Narrows League regular season and that came to South Kitsap in Port Orchard, a 10-0 loss on April 16th. The Bears won the first meeting between the two teams in March, 10-4. The Bears finished 11-1 in league while South Kitsap was second place at 8-4. The Wolves knocked off Bellarmine 5-0 on Wednesday to get to the title game. Again, the winner gets the #1 seed to districts while the loser gets the #2 seed.
Saint Martin’s vs. Northwest Nazarene (DH) – Saints Baseball Field – 1:00 PM
The last weekend of a highly disappointing Saint Martin’s baseball season starts today when the Saints take on Northwest Nazarene in doubleheader action starting at 1:00 PM. The Crusaders took both games in Nampa earlier this season coming from far behind in the final inning of each of their four games.
