Pac West Juniors advance at state

By Tim Clinton

VANCOUVER--The Pac West Junior Little League baseball all-star team may not have had a District 7 tournament to play in to tune up for state, but that does not seem to matter.

Pac West's team of age 13-14 players opened state action at the Cascade Little League complex in Vancouver by posting a 14-7 victory over West Plain on Saturday, then followed that up with a 13-3 win over Salmon Creek on Sunday.

Now the Burien-based team gets two days off before playing in a winner's bracket semifinal at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Pac West will play the representative of tournament host District 4.

A win there would give Pac West another day off going into the winner's bracket final scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Championship action awaits Friday's winner -- and the loser's bracket survivor -- with the first game at 11 a.m. Sunday.

The if-necessary championship game would follow if the winner's bracket champion loses the first.
