The Arlington boys baseball team took on the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors in the second round of the 3A District Tournament on May 8.

From the first pitch both teams had trouble at the plate and extraordinary performances from the mound. The Eagles were able to get a couple of hits early on but couldn't string them together in order to put runs on the board. Through the first five innings, Arlington did not allow a single hit, but also scored zero runs to keep the score at 0-0.

Over the last two innings the Warriors got on a roll, scoring once in the sixth and then twice more in the top of the seventh. The Eagles looked to pull out a late rally as they were able to fill the bases in the bottom of the seventh, however, they couldn't convert for runs. Edmonds-Woodway walked away with the 3-0 victory.

"We have to score runs. Plenty of times we were able to get guys on base but we just couldn't get the bat off the shoulder. We've been here before and we know what we have to do to make it to the State Tournament. This is just an opportunity to play some more baseball," said Arlington Head Coach Scott Striegel.

Arlington's starting pitcher, junior Cameron Smith, had an incredible outing as he pitched for six innings while only allowing two hits and one run. He also earned two strikeouts, one hit from the plate and a double.

Jack Sheward, junior catcher, and Owen Bishop, sophomore outfielder, both contributed to the Eagles' performance from beginning to end. Sheward went one for three at the plate, while also adding on a double and playing a key part in the strong pitching performance. Bishop contributed with a hit, a walk, one double and also came in at the end of the game to throw a strikeout.

After losing to the Warriors, the Eagles closed out their last two games in Districts against the Shorewood Thunderbirds, 7-2, and the Meadowdale Mavericks, 5-4. After earning third-place in Districts, they will go on to play the Eastside Catholic Crusaders in the State Tournament at Sherman Anderson Field in Mount Vernon. The game will be on Saturday, May 19, at 10 a.m.
