White River sports news

The White River High Hornets continue its baseball season today, Wednesday, after splitting a pair of games in the opening round of the District 2/3 tournament.

White River takes on the Port Angeles Roughriders at 2:30 this afternoon at Franklin Pierce High. It’s a loser-out contest, with the winner slated to play Saturday, again at Franklin Pierce.

The Hornets’ postseason experience came on the heels of a second-place finish in South Puget Sound League 2A play. White River went 13-7 during the regular season, including an 11-3 mark in league  play.

White River opened district play last Saturday in Kelso, starting with a tough 3-1 loss to the Sequim Wolves. Facing elimination in the consolation round, the Hornets bounced back in fine fashion, beating Highline High 10-0.

The top six teams from the district field of 16 will advance to the regional tournament.
