The high school baseball season ended Tuesday for Issaquah and Liberty high schools as both were eliminated in loser-out tournament games.
It was a disappointing end for both teams, who had high hopes of qualifying for the state tournament.
Issaquah fell to Lake Washington 7-2 in the 4A KingCo Conference tournament at Woodinville.. The Eagles ended the season with a 17-6 record.
Liberty, which led the 3A/2A KingCo Conference for most of the season, lost to Sammamish 4-1 in the first round at Bellevue’s Bannerwood Park.
Skyline soccer takes second
The Skyline High School boys soccer team lost to Garfield 4-1 on Tuesday in the 4A KingCo Conference championship game at Seattle’s Memorial Stadium.
Garfield advances to the 4A state tournament while Skyline still has a chance, too. The Spartans host the Greater St. Helens League’s No. 2 team Saturday in a bi-district contest. The winner of that game advances to next week’s state tournament.
Travis Strawn accounted for Skyline’s goal against Garfield.
In other tournament action, Eastlake ended Issaquah’s season with a 3-0 victory. Trevor Seliber, Nick Rudella and Renato Bandeira scored Eastlake’s goals.
Eastlake received the league’s No. 3 berth. The Wolves play at the Greater St. Helens League No. 1 team Saturday for a state tournament berth.
