A pair of Sumner Spartans – Preston Fullington and Nathan Harrell – found themselves east of the mountains over the weekend, participating in the all-state baseball series.

The games, played Saturday and Sunday at Parker Field in Yakima, brought together many of the best players from all corners of Washington. The series is limited to seniors and includes athletes from schools of all sizes, from the largest Class 4A programs to the small B schools.

In all, 72 players were divided among four teams.

The all-state series had the Spartan duo playing for Team Adams, under the guidance of Hall of Fame coach Paul Moody. Their regular-season numbers showed why they earned invitations to the all-state series.

Fullington, a pitcher, finished his senior campaign with a 9-2 record. He posted a 1.84 ERA, recorded 60 strikeouts and was a first-team, all-SPSL 3A selection.

Harrell is a two-time selection to the all-league first team. He finished his senior season with a .429 batting average that included four home runs; he drove in 19 runs and recorded 13 stolen bases.

Fullington and Harrell helped Sumner High to a Final Four appearance in the Class 3A state tournament.
