• High school title games moving to SafeCo: The Class 3A and 4A state high school baseball championships will be decided at Safeco Field in Seattle this year, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association announced Thursday.

Previously held at Everett Stadium and Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, the WIAA executive board of directors approved the move for one year.

This year’s semifinals and finals are scheduled for May 26-27.

“The Mariners have wanted to host the WIAA State Baseball Championships in Safeco Field since the ballpark first opened in 1999,” Mariners President Chuck Armstrong said in a news release. “It will be a wonderful event as high school athletes, coaches and staff will have the opportunity to compete for the Washington state baseball championship on the same field that major league players have regularly picked as one of the very best ballparks in the world.”

South Kitsap last played in the Class 4A title game in 2003, beating Federal Way 6-3 in Everett.

The Wolves have won two other state titles in 1983 and 1986 and finished second in 1994 all under former head coach Elton Goodwin.

“The association is excited about the opportunity to provide a unique venue for our high school athletes and also to provide visibility for all the programs the association offers,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said in a statement.

“The WIAA Executive Board is pleased that the Seattle Sports Commission and the Mariners came to the association with the concept of partnering because of the benefits to all high school students.”

McMahon paced the Wolves with a high game of 211 while Sadie Flerx recorded a series of 324 that included a high game of 207. Ariel Wagg of Bremerton posted the match’s high series with a 365.

The Wolves, now 5-2, faced Central Kitsap late Tuesday night and are at Shelton Thursday.
