The Hornets beat both league-leading Decatur 4-2 at home Friday and Bonney Lake 9-4 Thursday on the road.

There have been some ups and downs for the Hornets this season, but during the closing weeks the boys have been picked up some important victories, including a 6-4 win over Auburn Mountainview April 15.

The Hornets will be playing Hazen in the subdistrict tournament opener that begins at 7 p.m. Friday at Auburn Mountainview.

The game is a loser-out affair, with the winner getting the No. 5 spot into the West Central District tournament.

The Hornets finished fourth in the SPSL 3A with an 8-7 record.

Leading the league is Auburn Mountainview  and Decatur at 11-4.

Tyler St. John picked up the win against Bonney Lake, striking out eight in five innings, giving up two hits and two earned runs.

Bryce Peterson went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. St. John went 3-5 with a double and two RBIs.
