White River baseball ends season in regional tournament
An outstanding season came to a disappointing close Saturday morning for the White River High baseball team.
Having secured a spot in the 16-team Class 2A state tournament, the Hornets couldn’t advance to the Elite Eight. The end came when White River wound up on the short end of a 3-1 decision, falling to the highly-regarded squad from Tumwater High.
The first-round state game was played on the campus of W.F. West High School in Chehalis.
Backing by the pitching of Zach Rohrbach, White River remained in a scoreless tie for four innings. Tumwater added single runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, however, to register the victory and advance.
During the shutout loss, the Hornets were held to just three hits, two by Trent Buchanan.
Tumwater added a second victory Saturday and plays this weekend in the 2A’s Final Four.
For the season, White River went 19-6 overall. That included a 12-2 record and second-place finish in South Puget Sound League 2A play.
