Mountlake Terrace senior Jared Maxfield used his bat and his arm to lead the Hawks to a 1-0 victory over the Sehome Mariners Tuesday in a District 1/2 2A Baseball Tournament loser-out game played in Anacortes.
Maxfield hit an RBI single in the first inning off Sehome starter Alex Pitton for the game’s only run.
On the mound, Maxfield pitched a complete game two-hit shutout, striking out 10 Mariners and issuing just one base-on-balls.
With the win, Terrace keeps its hopes alive at snagging a spot in the WIAA 2A State Baseball Tournament later this month but will need to win two on Saturday, May 13. The no. 6-seeded Hawks will face the no. 5 seed Burlington Edison Tigers at 11 a.m. at Daniels Field in Anacortes. If Terrace is victorious, the squad will play later that day with a state tournament berth on the line.
