White River gears up for postseason play

Baseball, softball, and track are still going strong, while their soccer team has ended their season.


The season will be on the line today, Wednesday, when White River takes on the Orting Cardinals. Each has a loss in the West Central District 2A tourney and the winner will be done until next year. The winner will play Saturday for a berth in the state tournament.

White River had a first-round tournament bye and opened May 4 against North Mason High. Despite being the higher-seeded club, the Hornets dropped a 6-0 decision to the Bulldogs of the Olympic League.


The No. 5-seeded girls from White River opened the South Puget Sound League 2A softball tourney Monday with a 9-8, home field victory over Foss High.

The White River girls will take on Orting at 4 p.m. today, Wednesday, in a winner-to-district, loser-out contest.


The Hornet track and field athletes will join their peers from throughout the South Puget Sound League 2A for the league championship meet on Friday, May 10.

The league meet will be staged at Franklin Pierce High School.

The White River girls head to Friday’s action following a regular season in which they won every dual meet on their schedule. The boys were just a step back at 6-1.


The South Puget Sound League 2A tournament was a two-and-out affair for the Hornets.

The postseason was not kind to White River. The team’s league tourney started with an April 26 match at Highline Memorial Stadium in Burien, which resulted in a 3-1 loss to the Tyee Totems. Forced into a loser-out contest on April 29, the Hornets fell 1-0 to River Ridge at South Sound Stadium in Lacey.
