The Mountlake Terrace High School girls softball team split their first two games at the 3A District Softball Tournament Tuesday, beating Lynnwood in their first game 4-1, then dropping their next game 6-4 to Sedro-Woolley.
The Hawks can still qualify for the state tournament later this month, but they must win three games, starting with a Thursday match-up with Shorecrest. Game time is 4 p.m. at Janicki Fields in Sedro Woolley.
If the Hawks beat Shorecrest, they play again on Saturday at 11 a.m. against the winner of the Meadowdale-Glacier Peak game. With a victory, MTHS would play one more time Saturday afternoon for the last spot in the state tournament.
The top two ranked teams in the tournament, Everett and Sedro-Woolley, meet for the district championship Saturday at 11 a.m.
