Rough start at state for North Whidbey / 11/12 baseball

The North Whidbey Little League 11/12 all-star team ran into a juggernaut in its first game at the state tournament Sunday, July 16, in Federal Way.

Auburn, fresh off a 14-3 drubbing of Bainbridge Island Saturday, whipped the Wildcats 21-0.

North Whidbey, which had a first-round bye, will attempt to bounce back when it faces Montesano at 3 p.m. Monday, July 17. Montesano fell 17-3 to PacWest of SeaTac Saturday.

Auburn used two home runs to fuel an 11-run first inning in the win over North Whidbey.

Meanwhile, the Wildcats were no-hit and struck out 13 times in the four-inning game. One hitter reached first after a strikeout on a wild pitch.

The only other North Whidbey base runners were Alex Jenkins and Brady Towsley, who walked in the first inning.
