It was great to see the baseball boys on the way to their double victories on Saturday morning…Coach Rich Warin (in photo with Kim, one of our favorite teachers at the elementary school) does a super job of keeping the guys focused on the game ahead, and the results have been good. The baseball team plays for seeding this week, then heads for state next week.
Here’s the word from FHHS AD Rod Turnbull about the entire spring sports playoff set up:
-Boys Soccer played at Lynden Christian on Tuesday, May 5, where they lost 7–0. Their season has now been completed.
-Boys & Girls Golf will be playing May 13 & 14, in the District 1 Qualifying event. The boys will be at Homestead golf course in Lynden on May 14th, and the girls will play at Similk in Anacortes on May 13. Individuals who qualify at this event will move on to the Tri-District event on May 19, at Eagle Pride golf course in Tacoma.
-Baseball completed the District 1 tournament on Saturday, May 9 winning the event by defeating Lynden Christian 7–1 and Meridian 10–0. They will now move on to the Tri-District Tournament as the District 1 #1 seed. By earning the #1 seed from District 1, they have also qualified for the first round of the Regional State Tournament. They will play Saturday, May 16 at Sammamish HS vs Bellevue Christian to determine seeding to the State Regional Tournament. The game will start at 10:00. A win against Bellevue Christian would have them play Chimacum, also on Saturday May 16 at Sammamish, 1:00 start. A loss in the first game would mean Friday Harbor would enter State regional play as the # 3 seed.
-Softball will host a play-in game on Friday, May 15, vs Coupeville at 4:45. With a win, they would play again on Saturday, May 16 in the District 1 Tournament held at Janicki Fields in Sedro Woolley. The game on Saturday would start at 12:00pm; win or lose on Saturday they play again at 2:00pm. Three teams from the Saturday tournament will advance to the Tri-District Tournament the following weekend, May 23 at Janicki Fields again. A loss in Friday’s play-in game or two losses on Saturday, would end their season.
-Boys Tennis will continue play from the fall for those that qualified. Our # 2 doubles team will play in a feeder game on Monday, May 18 at Coupeville. A win will advance them to the Quad-District Tournament at the Nordstrom Tennis Center in Seattle on May 22. Our # 1 singles and #1 doubles players have already qualified for the Quad-District Tournament.
-Girls Tennis completed their District 1 event on Saturday, May 9. Friday Harbor placed 1st in singles, 2nd in singles and 2nd in doubles. These players will now advance to the Tri-District Tournament being held at the Nordstrom Tennis Center in Seattle on May 21.
-Track will begin their post season at the District 1 meet held at Lynden Christian on May 13 and May 15. Here individuals will be trying to qualify for the Tri-District Track meet to be held at Kings High School on May 21 and 23.
