What a ride. Sequim's 11- and 12-year-old Little League all-star softballers battled their way through three elimination games to come within a single win of a state berth, but finally dropped a 9-0 decision to host Bainbridge Island at Strawberry Park on Sunday afternoon.
Ah, home sweet home. The Wilder Baseball Club defended its home tournament, winning the 11th annual Dick Brown Memorial Firecracker Tournament in dramatic fashion with a 6-5 victory against the Seattle Braves.
The competition only gets tougher from here. Joe Hutchison and Ethan Hinton - both Sequim High School grads, wrestling teammates and multi-season state tournament qualifiers - are taking slightly different paths to one of the premier wrestling meets in the country.
