The Ballard High School baseball team just finished their best regular season ever, and are entering the King County playoffs as the #2 seed this weekend. Their first match-up will be against Bothell, at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Woodinville High School.
Head Coach Doug Montgomery says they finished the regular season with an 11-4 conference record, which is their best season since they joined the 4A division in 2003. Their 15-5 overall record earned them the #2 seed. Montgomery says some notable wins include a two-game sweep of both Roosevelt and Garfield and a win at Safeco Field over then-undefeated and #1 ranked Kentwood.
“It’s been a long time coming for this program,” Montgomery writes. “This group broke onto the scene last year, and now we plan to reach new heights. Making state has been our goal since day 1. We’re finally getting everyone healthy, we’ve learned from our mistakes this year, and now it’s time to put it all together. We’re playing to win, and we’re playing for Ballard Pride.”
Good luck boys!
