Jamborees, Non-League Games on the Horizon

We are now two weeks into the baseball season, which means it is jamboree time for many of the KingCo 3A and 4A teams. A couple 4A teams got a head start on things, opening their non-league slates on Friday. It would appear that pitching is definitely ahead of hitting at this point in the season, with both games involving KingCo teams turning out to be low scoring contests.

Friday's Scores
Roosevelt 1, Bishop Blanchet 0
Eastside Catholic 3, Skyline 2

Monday starts a heavy non-conference week chock-full of 3A/4A crossover games. 13 games will be played next week pitting 3A schools against 4A schools. Five of those games are on Monday, highlighted by a matchup between two 2010 KingCo champions, when 3A co-champ Mount Si travels to Hartman Park to take on defending 4A champion Redmond.
