Triple Play: Final softball notes for 2013

The state tournaments were something else! Congratulations to all of the champions – Arlington (4A), Kamiakin (3A), Selah (2A), Connell (1A), Toutle Lake (2B) and Colton (1B).

I’ve got some comments from him, and a few career highlights. I then will focus on the 4A and 3A state tournaments. I checked in via e-mail with the coaches of a few of the local teams who fared well, and will share their thoughts.

I’ll link to the tournament brackets in each classification, then wrap up with the latest national rankings one last time.
