Eastlake wins Kingco baseball title; Issaquah and Skyline out | Prep sports news

The Wolves will take the top seed to the state tournament in their first trip since 2003

Eastlake is home to the 4A KingCo baseball champions, after coach Kevin Agnew’s squad earned a 3-1 win over Woodinville May 15 to capture the league crown and take the top seed from the district to the 4A state baseball tournament.

The Wolves opened with a 3-0 win over Skyline, before beating Bothell 5-1 in the semifinals to earn the program’s first state tournament berth since 2003.

Four errors undid the host Falcons in the title game, as Eastlake ace Mick Vorhof again took the ball in a critical game with impressive results, sending his team to a 1 p.m. May 24 first round state tournament game against the fifth seeded team from Districts 3 and 4. Kentridge, Tahoma, Union and Gig Harbor will decide the final three bi-district playoff spots May 17 to set that matchup.

Issaquah ended its season one game short of a winner-to-state crossover, surrendering five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning in a 7-5 loss to Redmond in the third place game of the tournament.

The Eagles, which were dropped 6-1 by the Mustangs in the opening round, bounced back with a 4-3 win over Newport and 13-3 victory over Bothell to keep their season alive before falling in their third straight loser-out game.

Skyline was knocked out by Redmond in a 13-3 loss and finished the tournament with one win.
