Newport wins three, Saints get one at state | Prep sports news
Newport and Interlake both broke through to the state tournament on the softball diamond and finished their season among the state's best.
The Knights, which were at state for only the third time ever and first time in Class 4A, won their first game of the tournament 10-9 over Emerald Ridge to advance in the winners bracket.
A loss to Richland sent Newport to a loser-out game for its third game of the afternoon before a 7-3 win over Bellarmine Prep kept the season alive.
The Knights beat Todd Beamer 9-8 to move a step closer to the third-place game before falling to KingCo rival Woodinville 13-2 in the consolation bracket semi-finals.
Interlake lost its first game in the 3A state tournament 5-2 to Enumclaw before surviving an 8-7 game with Auburn Mountainview to advance to the late session on day one.
But it was a familiar foe in Juanita waiting and the Rebels sent the Saints home in an 11-3 game.
