Prep softball: Hawks win one, lose one in District Tournament play

The Mountlake Terrace Hawks went 1-1 during the first day of competition at the District 1/2 2A Softball Tournament in Sedro-Woolley on Wednesday and will be back for more tourney play on Friday, May 18, hoping to land a berth in the 2A state tournament later this month.

The Hawks will take on the Lynden Lions at 4 p.m. on Friday with the winner earning a spot at state; the winner will also play in the district tournament’s 3rd/4th place contest later on Friday evening against the winner of the Sedro-Woolley / Cedarcrest loser-out game.

Terrace, the no. 5 seed in the district tournament, prevailed in their first game on Wednesday 10-6 over the no. 4 seed Sedro-Woolley Cubs. The Hawks jumped out to a 7-1 lead after three innings and coasted to the victory. Sammy Ruiz led the Terrace attack with three hits, a walk and two RBI in the contest.

The Hawks didn’t have as much success in their second game on Wednesday, falling to the tournament’s no. 1 seed Sehome Mariners. Sehome scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and went on to snatch the come-from-behind win. Ruiz had two more hits and two more RBI in the Terrace-Sehome match-up, but it wasn’t enough against the top-seeded Mariners.
