Players from White River and Enumclaw high schools combined last weekend to advance to the title round of district play, thus earning a berth in the upcoming Washington State American Legion baseball championships.
Boasting a record of 24-11, the Plateau Baseball Club will begin state tournament play Friday in Walla Walla. The state tournament runs through Aug. 1.
The Plateau squad is coached by the father-son duo of Mike and Connor Williams. Taking the field are White River players Sean Klapperich, Nick Whitmore, Brandon Henke, Cody Cloud, Austin Hill, Trent Buchanan, Matt Salisbury, Mitchell Webster, Hunter Ford and Tyler Estes; Enumclaw players include Baker McCullough, Sam Rabb and Christian Sines.
The Plateau Baseball Club finished third in its league, won a play-in game against Gig Harbor and advanced to the district tournament at North Kitsap. The PBC opened with victories over host North Kitsap on Friday and Wilson on Saturday to qualify for state play. District play wrapped up with a 12-8 loss on Sunday to Olympia.
