In a baseball game moved from Glacier Peak to Shorecrest High School due to foul weather, the Scots lost a hard-fought battle that was tied into the final inning.

Starting pitcher Tyson Main and a tight defense had the Scots leading until the 5th inning. Glacier Peak sophomore Zane May battled at the mound under stormy skies as the Grizzlies fought back to a tie, and the game was a battle of defense at 4-4 until the 7th inning, when Glacier Peak, playing as the home team, bunted. Shorecrest senior catcher Tim Swan made the throw to first baseman Ted Weber for what looked like a clear out. With a controversial call from the field umpire, the batter was ruled safe and became the go-ahead run for a 5-4 Shorecrest loss.

The Scots’ 5-4 home loss followed losses against Glacier Peak Tuesday at home and Wednesday at Glacier Peak.  

The 5-4 loss dropped Shorecrest's Western Conference 3A record to 1-11 (2-13 overall).

The Scot junior varsity lost a home game to Glacier Peak, 8-2, Friday to drop its Wesco 3A record to 0-12 (1-14 overall).

The Shorecrest varsity next plays a home game with Mountlake Terrace Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Shorecrest High School, with junior varsity teams from the two schools meeting at the same time at Mountlake Terrace.
