Playoff Seeding Finalized

Playoff Brackets: [ 4A Tournament ] [ 3A Tournament ]

Just one game remains on the KingCo regular season schedule, but with both Mount Si and Lake Washington having locked up the #1 and #2 seeds respectively, it will not impact the playoff seeding. One game and one coin flip yesterday determined the #3 - #6 seeds in the upcoming 3A tournament.

Thursday 3A Recap
Liberty 12, Sammamish 2 - A nine-run first inning helped the red-hot Patriots cruise to a 12-2 win over Sammamish. The win locked up the #5 seed in the KingCo playoffs, with Sammamish sliding in at #6. Senior Ryan Maio was 2-for-2 with a double and a home run, with Scott Zerda (3-for-4, RBI) and Harrison Diemert (2-for-3, run) also contributing to the offense. Junior Ben Wessel was the winning pitcher, helping Liberty complete a 5-2 second half. Senior Aaron Lawrenson and junior Ryan Hashimoto each had two hits for the Totems.

Bellevue earns #3 seed - The Wolverines and Islanders didn't play a game on Thursday, but their seeding in the playoffs was determined by a coin toss. Bellevue won and will enter as the #3 seed, with Mercer Island taking the #4.
So, the first round tournament matchups are finalized:

Tuesday, 5/10 - Bannerwood Park
