White River girls punch ticket to state tournament | Fastpitch

The White River girls split two games – one a rout, the second much closer – to open the West Central District fastpitch tournament.

The Hornets ended the tournament by beating Kingston 12-0 Sunday to earn the fifth spot to the state tournament.

After rain washed out Friday’s competition, the tourney kicked off Saturday.

The Hornet girls made their tourney debut with a laugher, beating Tyee 16-0. That put White River against Fife and resulted in a 5-2 loss.

The opening day split meant White River would need a pair of victories Sunday to grab the district’s fifth and final spot into the upcoming Class 2A state tourney.

The team will play the first round of state against WF West from Chehalis at 10 a.m. Friday at Carlon Park in Selah.
