By Tim Clinton

In the case of the West Seattle girls fastpitch softball team, hopefully it's alls well that begins well.

The Wildcats leapt into the Metro League tournament with a vengeance, edging Eastside Catholic, 7-6, Monday and earning the right to advance into a second round game Wednesday, May 8.

West Seattle will pay a visit to Holy Names of Seattle for a 4 p.m. game that day as it continues its quest for a berth into the upcoming Sea-King District tournament.

The game joins an already busy spring sports postseason dockett for that day.

The Metro League track and field meet opens at 4 p.m. at the Southwest Athletic Complex located by Chief Sealth High School. (It will conclude at 3:30 p.m. Friday at the same site).

Chief Sealth is still alive in boys soccer and plays a 5:30 p.m. match against Lakeside at Interbay Stadium on Wednesday, with those playoffs taking place every day through Saturday.

Both the West Seattle and Chief Sealth baseball teams are alive for a playoff double-header at Mel Olson Stadium in the Steve Cox complex in White Center on Thursday, May 9.

Chief Sealth plays Nathan Hale at 4:45 p.m. and West Seattle takes on Ingraham at 7:45 p.m.
Evergreen of White Center will play in Friday's 2A fastpitch sub-district tournament starting with a 4 p.m. game against Fife at the Boise Creek Six Plex in Enumclaw.
