It was a cold day for baseball on Thursday night. How cold? Shorewood coach Wyatt Tonkin told the Everett Herald that his game with Mariner was “the coldest game I’ve ever played in.”
But near-freezing temperatures in March didn’t seem to effect the guys in Oak Harbor. There, Oak Harbor beat Cascade 11-10 in a game that had 19 hits (more than the runs scored), had eight pitchers and eight runs scored in the seventh inning.
It ended with Cascade scoring three runs in the top of the seventh to take a 10-6 lead. Things looked good, until Oak Harbor came right back. With two outs, Oak Harbor’s Danny Lura saved everyone from extra innings in the cold with an RBI single to give Oak Harbor the win.
The fans at the Edmonds-Woodway vs. Meadowdale game weren’t so lucky to get out of the cold in seven. But they did see another great game (better if they were there for the E-W.) Meadowdale tied it at four with a run in the bottom of the seventh, but Edmonds-Woodway broke away in the top of the eighth with four runs. That includes Tyler Lange’s two-run home run.
-The rosters for the East-West Football All-Star Game are out, and you can find them right here.
-Speaking of football, Archbishop Murphy has found a new coach. It’s Dave Ward, who won a state title two years ago at Oak Harbor.
-Also, as I write this, Gonzaga freshman Steven Gray — our state player of the year at Bainbridge last season — just put down his sixth three-pointer.

2. Dani Jackman, Jackson, softball. Threw a one-hitter in five innings with 13 strikeouts — in other words, only two outs were not strikeouts.
3. Kevin Babcock, Ingraham, baseball. Went 4-for-4, with three runs and three RBI, which came on a three-run home run in Ingraham’s big 8-3 win against Seattle Prep.
