Mount Si finishes fourth in Class 3A

PASCO – Mount Si’s season came to an end with a 6-1 loss to Kennewick in Saturday’s Class 3A third-place game, but first-year Mount Si coach Zach Habben said that didn’t sour his debut season.

“We came out and played hard all year and unfortunately we didn’t come out as well as we had this weekend,” Habben said. “But these guys still battled, and they never gave up. It’s been a great season as a first-year coach.”

Mount Si managed just three hits against Kennewick pitcher Clayten Ayres, who had a no-hitter through four innings before Zach Usselman’s double ended that in the fifth inning. Joe Done followed immediately with an RBI single that got the Wildcats on the board.

Connor Swift started for Mount Si and gave up three earned runs in six innings.

Ayres pitched a complete game for Kennewick.

Mount Si finished third in KingCo 3A in the regular season and lost the final three games of April, but the Wildcats clinched a spot at state by winning the KingCo 3A tournament..

“Everything just started clicking,” Habben said. “Pitching, defense, getting those timely hits, which unfortunately we weren’t able to do this weekend. We all came together as a team.”
