Coupeville accepts invitation to regional tournament / 15U Babe Ruth

It seems the Coupeville 15U Babe Ruth baseball team’s results at the state tournament were more of a check swing than strikeout.

Columbia Basin defeated the Wolves 2-1 in a best-of-three series to win the North Washington title and a berth in the regional tournament.

Columbia Basin, however, does not have enough players available to participate in the regional tournament, so second-place Coupeville was invited to attend.

The Wolves accepted and will now extend their season with a trip to Portland for the Northwest Regional Tournament July 23-28 at David Douglas High School.

Coupeville will begin pool play at 4 p.m. Monday, July 23, against Alberta.

Tuesday, the Wolves meet host Portland at 4 p.m. and then have a bye Wednesday.

Thursday, Coupeville faces South Washington at 10 a.m., and Friday the Wolves conclude pool play at 1 p.m. against Montana.

The other pool includes the Wyoming, South Oregon, North Oregon and Idaho champions as well as an at-large team from the Portland area.

The top two teams from each pool advance to the championship round Saturday, July 28.

Coupeville has started a GoFundMe page — https://www.gofundme.com/5tvx6bs — to help cover the costs of the trip.
