The White River High girls find themselves among a dozen teams participating this week in the West Central District fastpitch tournament, hoping to be one of five clubs advancing to the state tourney.

District competition will take place Friday and Saturday at the Sprinker fields in Spanaway.

White River opens WCD play at 10 a.m. Friday against Tyee. It’s a loser-out game, with the winner advancing to a 2 p.m. contest against the tough Fife Trojans. The winner of the second game advances to the tourney’s Final Four and is assured a state berth; the loser would need two victories on Saturday to advance to state.

The Hornets earned a trip to the district tourney by winning two of three games Friday during the subdistrict tournament at Enumclaw’s Boise Creek Sixplex. White River opened with an 8-4 loss to Orting, but bounced back with a pair of lopsided wins – 15-0 over Lindbergh and 20-6 over Tyee.
