News from the diamond, featuring young and old….

Mount Si High School grad Connor Swift had a triple and drove in a pair of runs, but it was not enough as his select baseball team, the Washington Athletics U18’s, fell 5-4 to Easton Baseball last night in Seattle. Fellow recent Mount Si grad Austin Hall also had a hit to aid the A’s, who are now 8-12 on the season.

Little League postseason tournaments underway
The District 9 Little League all-star tournaments got underway this past weekend, and continued last night with a game in the tournament for nine and 10-year old boys between the Falls and Sno-Valley North Little Leagues. Quinn Patterson went 3-4 and also was the winning pitcher for Falls as they won 7-4 in a loser-out game at Big Finn Hill Park in Kirkland. Falls advances to another loser-out game Thursday, while SVNLL is out of the tournament.

Meanwhile, the Snoqualmie Valley Little League’s entry in this event is into the winner’s bracket semifinals and will meet Bellevue West tomorrow. SVLL defeated SVNLL Saturday and Sammamish Sunday to advance into the game tomorrow, and a key factor for the SVLL team in both games was Logan Garwood, who on the weekend went a combined 4-5 (2-2 Saturday, 2-3 Sunday). Garwood and his teammates will look to advance to the winner’s bracket final with a win in tomorrow’s game.

That contest tomorrow night is at 6:00 p.m. at Big Finn Hill Park, and admission is free.

The District 9 Majors softball tournament is also underway, but none of the Valley leagues have a team representing them in this year’s tournament. Most other District 9 all-star tournaments will begin next week, and we will have all those highlights for you here.
