Races to watch down the spring stretch

Some leagues are less than two weeks away from the postseason, and many are far from decided. Here are four conference races I’m watching down the stretch.

Metro Mountain baseball. It doesn’t get much better than this. Eastside Catholic and Bishop Blanchet are each 13-0 in the league, and they’ll play each other — according to our schedule — on Monday and Wednesday. Monday is at Lower Woodland, and Wednesday is at Eastside Catholic. Should be two great games.

KingCo 4A softball. Four teams have a better than .700 record, but the other three are all trying to knock of Woodinville, which has started 11-0. The Falcons play the other three — Eastlake, Juanita and Lake Washington — down the stretch. Devan McComb and Kaaren Hatlen combined for a no-hitter of Ballard last night to keep Woodinville undefeated.

WesCo North boys soccer. Both Snohomish and Marysville-Pilchuck have been ranked in the top 25 in the most recent adidas national poll, and two points separate those two teams, which split their two meeting this season. But don’t forget about Cascade, which is right up there, too. In WesCo South, Shorewood is 11-1-1, with two wins over second-place Shorecrest.

KingCo 3A baseball. Skyline took the league lead Thursday with 10-5 win against Newport, but this league’s far from decided. Six teams are just three games off the division lead, including last year’s state champ, Issaquah, Newport and Liberty.

Morning stars

1. Mark Sleighter, Nathan Hale, baseball. Hit a grand slam and finished with 5 RBI in an 18-8 win against Cleveland.

2. Brittany Tri, Lake Stevens, girls track. Won four events — the high jump, long jump, triple jump and 100 hurdles — in one meet.

3. Doug Earley, Rainier Christian, baseball. Had two home runs, two of five for Rainier Christian in an 11-3 win against Quilcene.
