The 2019 softball regular season came to a rough end for the Mountlake Terrace Hawks on Tuesday as the squad committed six errors in an 11-2 home loss to the Everett Seagulls.
Everett took advantage of the Hawks’ fielding errors, scoring seven runs in the first two innings to take control of the contest and then coasting to the win.
Terrace’s Jamie Bingaman slugged a solo home run while teammate Jenna Maxfield went 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI double, but it wouldn’t be enough to overcome the Seagulls’ early advantage.
The Hawks finished the regular season with a 9-5 2A/3A Wesco League record, 10-10 overall, likely landing them at no.5 in the 2A District 1/2 RPI final rankings that will be released on Wednesday. The ranking will give Terrace a home game to open the District 1/2 2A Softball Tournament on Saturday, May 11, against either Sehome or Lynden.
