De Jesus, a senior, tossed a no-hitter and struck out 15 batters in the Timberwolves’ 2-0 win over Eastlake in Saturday’s 4A Wes-King Bi-District title game. In her team’s four bi-district contests, the right-hander posted 60 strikeouts and allowed just four earned runs and 10 hits in 28 innings.

Kwak, a senior bound for Columbia University, claimed medalist honors at the 4A Northwest District Championships on Tuesday at Snohomish Golf Course.
