Shorewood joins the District’s No. 1 and No. 2 teams, Mountlake Terrace and Kamiak, in State play, Sixteen teams from around the State will play in four four-team regional tournaments next weekend, with the four winners meeting the following weekend for the State 4A championship.

Shorewood (16-9) will play Saturday at Heidleberg Park in Tacoma.

Shorewood went into the District tournament as the last team to qualify for the tournament. The Thunderbirds finished fourth in the Wesco South and defeated Oak Harbor to qualify for District. After losing an opening-round game to eventual runner-up Kamiak, they had to win three straight games to qualify for State.

In the final win over Jackson Saturday, Trevor Mitsui had two home runs and four runs batted in. Christian Heideger had a double, a home run and two RBI. Blake Snell, Thomas Vincent, Connor McKeever and Jeremy Edwards each had two hits for Shorewood. Kevin Moriarty, the winning pitcher struck out 10 batters in five innings.

The game was moved to Snohomish High School because of flooding in the outfield at Everett Memorial Stadium, where the sprinklers were left on all night.
