Congratulations Little Leaguers
September 4, 2013
If folks in Sammamish have become jaded about their sports teams – considering a state title or three at every high school every year has become the norm — then they were likely shaken from that attitude last month by Eastlake’s Little Leaguers
The boys captured the attention of the city and, indeed, the entire state during their tremendous run; first as state champions, then as regional champs and finally finishing third in the nation.
Let’s not forget the girls, who won a state title in little league softball.
While ending the season with a loss is never easy, “our” boys have plenty to be proud of. They played their hearts out, notching more than one come-from-behind victory. They were perfect gentlemen and good sports on the field, even when frustrating moments struck.
They represented their hometown with dignity, and made us all proud. Congratulations, boys, and thank you for your hard work.
We can’t wait to see what Eastlake High School’s baseball team will look like in a few years when you add your skills to the team!
