High school sports roundup for May 16, 2023


The Mountlake Terrace Hawks softball team advanced to the district championship game and qualified for the state tournament with two victories Tuesday.

The third-seeded Hawks started out the tournament by defeating the sixth-seeded Marysville Getchell Chargers 10-0 in five innings. Ellie Gilbert threw a five-inning two hitter while the offense took care of the rest, including a seven-run fifth inning to close out the game with a 10-run mercy rule victory.

The Hawks then played the second-seeded Cascade Bruins in the semifinal game, with the winner clinching a state berth. The Hawks appeared to be on their way to an easy win after scoring two runs in the top of the sixth inning to take a 5-0 lead. Cameron Dunn and Mya Sheffield each homered to help build the lead. The Bruins, however, came back to tie the game at 5-5 with a five-run sixth inning that was aided by three Hawks errors.

Neither team scored in the seventh inning and the game went to extra innings. The Hawks scored two runs in the top of the eighth inning and then had to hold on for the win as the Bruins pulled within one in the bottom of the eight. Gilbert pitched her second complete game of the day and closed out the Bruins for another win.

The Hawks will face top-seeded Snohomish in the district championship game Thursday, May 18 at 6 p.m. at Phil Johnson Fields in Everett. Both teams will then move on to next week’s state championship tournament.
