I’ll continue to update at the top throughout the day.
In Class 4A, the final two state qualifiers are Jefferson and Emerald Ridge. Both won a pair of loser-out games today to advance. Jefferson eliminated Beamer (8-7) and Central Kitsap (10-5). Emerald Ridge — which came in as the 10th and final seed out of the South Puget Sound League — knocked out Tahoma (10-5) and South Kitsap (13-2).
SK was the No. 1 seed out of the Narrows and ranked 10th in the state.
The semifinals are scheduled for 3:15 (Puyallup vs. Rogers and Stadium vs. Kentlake), with the game for third and sixth places (semifinal losers) at 5 p.m. and the championship game at 6:45 p.m.
In 3A, Bonney Lake, Union, Capital and Franklin Pierce have clinched state berths. Capital upset third-ranked Prairie, 3-1.
Eight teams (including Prairie) remain in contention for the remaining four state berths.
Kennedy and Mount Rainier are squaring off right now in a loser-out, winner-to-state game. Same for Auburn Mountainview and Enumclaw.
