Jackson defeats Mount Si in loser-out playoff game on the diamond

Wildcats finish the 2019 season with nine wins.

Mount Si Wildcats head baseball coach Brent Lutz couldn’t had been prouder of his team despite a setback in the final game of the 2019 season.

The Jackson Timberwolves defeated the Wildcats 8-2 in a loser-out Wes-King 4A district baseball tournament playoff game on May 2 at Everett Memorial Stadium. Mount Si finished the season with an overall record of 9-12.

Lutz, who was in his first season leading the program, credited the senior class consisting of Trace Halverson, Spencer Marenco, Cole Bostwick, Trevor Clem, Frankie Cepeda and Levi Jorgenson for their resiliency throughout the duration of their high school baseball careers.

“What I love about these seniors is that they never made any excuses. They never got to play a home game because as sophomores we lost our home field (Mount Si High School renovations). We battled all year. We finished 9-9 in league (4A KingCo). I thought that was a really great accomplishment. It was a great group of kids,” Lutz said. “They gave me everything they had. I couldn’t ask for a better set of seniors for my first year as head coach. I really appreciate them supporting me and helping me make the changes I wanted to make in my first year.”

* In softball action, Mount Si’s season ended with a pair of losses at the 4A KingCo tournament on May 3: 11-7 to Inglemoor and 22-5 to Bothell.

Kate Gotts had two hits in each game, Hope Bostick homered against Inglemoor, Willow Westbrook had two hits against Inglemoor and Jackalyn Gates and Vera Harrison had two hits each against Bothell.
