Wolves qualify for state tournament / 14 Babe Ruth baseball

The Coupeville 14-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team qualified for the state tournament by finishing second in the district tournament this week in Burlington.

Sedro-Woolley completed a sweep of the best-of-three series with Coupeville with a 12-1 win Tuesday, claiming the district title and the top seed going into state.

The Outlaws broke open a close game with a flurry of late runs.

Coupeville starting pitcher George Dailey gave up only one run and struck out six over the first three innings to keep the Wolves in the game.

Dailey also helped with his bat. His double down the third-base line scored Scott Hilborn, who had walked, to tie the game a 1-1 in the third inning.

After the double, Dailey was drilled in the back in a pick off attempt at second base and “wasn’t the same on the mound after that,” according to coach Steve Hilborn.

Sedro-Woolley tacked on a run in the fourth and three in the fifth.

In sixth, Gavin Knoblich took over on the mound and was a victim of sloppy defense as the Outlaws ran away for the win.

The state tournament begins July 10 in Ephrata.
