The White River High girls find themselves among Washington’s fastpitch elite, having made the Sweet 16 and landing a berth in the Class 2A state tournament.

The Hornets’ state journey begins at 10 Friday morning, paired against Granite Falls in the tourney’s double-elimination bracket. If White River wins, the team will play again at 4 p.m. Friday against the victor of an opening-round contest between Cheney and Tumwater. If White River drops its opener, the Hornets would play at 2 p.m. against the Cheney/Tumwater loser.

All tournament games are slated for Carlon Park in Selah.

The Hornets had guaranteed their state berth with May 18 victories at the West Central District tournament. Needing two wins to assure a spot in Selah, White River pounded Washington High 12-2 and slipped past Sequim 5-4.
