Five selected for All-State Baseball Series

Five West Sound baseball players were selected for the All-State Baseball Series this weekend in Yakima.

North Kitsap’s Kole Milyard, Bremerton’s Zane Zurbrugg and Anthony Amicangelo, Klahowya’s Jakob Wittig and North Mason’s Daulton Geyer were named to the series Sunday.

The five players were nominated from the 49th Senior All-Star Doubleheader that was played Friday at the Fairgrounds.

WCD 3A/2A/1A softball tournament postponed until Monday; SK in 4A resumes Sunday

The Class 3A/2A/1A West Central District softball tournaments at Sprinker Fields in Spanaway have been postponed until Monday due to rain.

The Class 4A West Central District tourney at Kent Service Club Ballfields was also postponed, but that tournament is slated to resume Sunday. South Kitsap, which survived after beating Olympia 15-5 in a loser-out game on Friday, will play Tahoma Sunday at 11 a.m. If SK wins, the Wolves will play a winner-to-state, loser-out game at 2 p.m. A coin flip would decide the fifth/sixth seeds.

Tournament officials at the 3A/2A/1A spoke with coaches at about 8:30 Saturday morning to inform them games would be played Sunday with an hour later start time. However, that was changed hours later when it appeared the weather will not cooperate Sunday. The forecast for Monday in Spanaway is for clouds with only a 20 percent chance of rain and a high of 63 degrees.

Games that will be played are elimination games only. Teams that have already secured state berths are now seeded into their respective state tournaments. In 2A, Port Angeles is the second seed.

All Kitsap teams are facing elimination. Central Kitsap plays Capital in 3A at 11 a.m. If the Cougars win they would play at 1 p.m. in another loser-out game and then 3 p.m. for the fifth-seed/loser out. Seeded teams are No. 1 Enumclaw, No. 2 Columbia River, No. 3 Auburn Mountainview and No. 4 Prairie.

In 2A, Olympic plays at 11 a.m. against Orting while North Kitsap and Kingston play at 1 p.m. Sequim also plays at 11 a.m. against Steilacoom. Winning teams advance to a winner-to-state, loser-out games at 3 p.m.  A coin flip will determine the fifth/sixth seeds. Seeded teams are No. 1 Fife, No. 2 PA, No. 3 White River, No. 4 Forest Ridge/Bear Creek.

In 1A, Klahowya plays Chimacum at 1 p.m. in a winner-to-state, loser-out game for the No. 3 seed. Seattle Christian is the No. 1 seed, followed by Bellevue Christian at No. 2.

The WCD has updated brackets for 3A, 2A and 1A here.

Class 3A West Central/Southwest District

Bracket: here

Who: Central Kitsap (10-4-2) vs. TBD

When: Thursday, 5:30 p.m. at Stadium HS

Berths to state available: Six

Outlook: A three-game winless skid toward the end of the regular season cost Central Kitsap the Narrows League 3A title.

The Cougars face the winner of Tuesday’s game between Shelton and Peninsula.

Class 2A West Central District

Bracket: Here

Who: Kingston (14-1-1) vs. Lindbergh (15-0-1)

When: Thursday, 7:30 p.m. at Highline Memorial Stadium

Berths to state available: Six

Outlook: Kingston won the Olympic League 2A title. The Buccaneers are assured of a berth to state for the fourth consecutive year. Seeding is the remaining question mark. Kingston could take first, second, third — which would all mean a home game in the first round of state — or sixth.

Who: Sequim (11-5-0) vs. Foster (5-7-3)

When: Thursday, 5:30 p.m. at Bonney Lake HS

Outlook: Sequim placed second in the Olympic League 2A. The Wolves would clinch a berth to state with a win over Foster and face the winner of Kingston-Lindbergh for seeding. A loss to Foster and Sequim’s season is done.

When: Thursday, 7 p.m. at North Kitsap

Outlook: North Kitsap placed third in the Olympic League 2A and faces a loser-out game between winner of Tuesday’s game between Sammamish and Clover Park. The Vikings need two victories to secure their seventh state berth in the past eight seasons.

Who: Port Angeles (9-6-1) vs. Washington (7-8-0)

When: Tuesday, 5 p.m. at Silverdale Stadium

Outlook: Port Angeles took fourth in the Olympic League 2A and needs to win three loser-out games in order to reach state for the first time since 2012.

Bracket: Here

Who: Klahowya (14-1-1) vs. Vashon (9-2-4)

When: Tuesday, 7 p.m. at Silverdale Stadium

Who: Port Townsend (9-6-1) vs. Charles Wright (10-3-0)

When: Tuesday, 6:30 p.m. at Harry Lang Stadium, Lakewood
