The Seagulls senior knocked in the game-winning run with a triple in the bottom of the seventh inning as Everett beat Sedr0-Woolley 14-13 to win the 3A District 1 championship.

A year after dropping the baton in the prelims at the bi-district championships, the Tomahawks 4oo relay team — Bri King, Mackenzie Nolte, Summer Cull and Charlee Pilon — won the event convincingly at this year’s meet, earning a spot at state. On a side note, they did it without one of the fastest runners on the team, Amanda Klep.
