Three area baseball teams entered state regional action Saturday -- and all three came up short of getting out.
Kennedy Catholic came the closest, playing in the Class 4A tournament.

The Lancers defeated Bothell in their first regional game at Foss High School in Tacoma Saturday morning, 7-4, then returned to face division rival Kentwood in the second game.

Kennedy came up short by a 3-2 score to see its season end. Had the Lancers won, they would have gone on to the state final four.

Seattle Christian also split its regional games in the Class 1A tournament played in Anacortes.

The Warriors edged Meridian, 6-4, Saturday morning before losing to Cedar Park Christian that afternoon, 5-2, to end their season.

Highline made it to the first regional game Saturday morning in the 2A regionals, playing at Wheeler Field at Fort Borst Park in Centralia.

The Pirates came up one run shy against Columbia River of Vancouver, 4-3.
