The Boy’s 3A Seamount baseball season is over and it turned out to be an interesting year.
Both Mt. Rainier and Highline High School did very well, along with Kennedy.
Tyee and Evergreen didn’t do so great though and so Highline School District evened out pretty well.
Mt. Rainer High School finished at the top of the standings at 10-1 in conference and a combined win loss record of 11-3.
Kennedy finished second with 13 wins and four losses in league play and a combined record of 14-6.
The Highline Pirates finished third with a 12-4 league play record and went 14-4 in combined play.
Highline School District’s baseball teams are some of the top in the state and many of the players will likely play college ball.
