Not sanctioned at the WIAA level as a season sport, but popular among high school kids, nonetheless, is lacrosse. Boys and girls teams are littering our area and are all over the state. They include Bellevue, Kent, Tacoma, Burien, Thomas Jefferson and Seattle, even Silverdale and over the mountains, in Wenatchee, too, in the 33-team club girls league. "Lacrosse is a lot of fun," said Kennedy Catholic coach Natalie Merrill, who is in her first year coaching the Lancers along with her assistant, Ashton Woodcock. But Merrill has auspicious roots for the sport.

"I started the high school lacrosse team at Kennedy when I was a sophomore in 2008," said Merrill, who graduated as a Lancer two years later. But she didn't graduate in 2010 until she led the entire WGLA (Washington Girls Lacrosse Association) in scoring and was the MVP. Now, having just gone to Washington State University for four years, playing college level lacrosse there, getting a B.A. in psychology, graduating in 2014, she is back from the Palouse, coaching the sport she loves and founded for the Lancers.

Chief Sealth jumped out to a 9-0 lead and then coasted to a 15-5 victory over Ingraham in Metro League girls fastpitch softball action Monday.

The Seahawks ran their record to 8-5 with the win in a game that was stopped in the midst of a bottom of the sixth rally by a 10-run rule.
"These girls work hard at their sport," said Chief Sealth head coach Mike Depew after the dust on the Southwest Athletic Complex field had settled.

Julia Stewart won on the mound for the Seahawks, throwing the first three innings and striking out five as the team built its 9-0 lead.
Stewart allowed only one base runner -- on a leadoff single to start off the top of the first -- and she was quickly erased to allow Stewart to face the minimum nine batters.
Melanie Ochoa threw the final three innings, striking out three.

Livvy Boyd led the Chief Sealth hitters on what was a sunny and mildly breezy afternoon, hitting 3-for-4 with a triple and two singles. Sister Sophia Boyd hit 2-for-3 in the leadoff position on a triple and a double.

For Seattle Christian, it was more fun in the sun under blue skies.

Sophomore Carlee Ronish crafted a four-hitter with 10 strike outs and only one walk as the Seattle Christian softball team completed a sweep of three games for the week in a 9-1 nonleague 1A victory at Klahowya (Silverdale) on Fri., April 17.

The visiting Warriors systematically took control of the event, beginning with a three-run first inning. Klahowya's Eagles soared briefly to put together enough offense to score their only run of the game in the home half of the first.

Seattle Christian earned runners on base in the second inning on the way to another three-spot run production and a 6-1 lead.

As their defense held tough, the Warriors notched two additional runs in the fourth inning plus a lone counter in the sixth inning.

In their nine-hit attack over seven full innings, the powerful Warriors were led by shortstop Kelli Ronish who batted 3-for-3 with double and four runs scored.

Highline High School graduate Ryan Brett was set to make his Major League Baseball starting debut Tuesday night as the second baseman for the Tampa Bay Rays.

Brett and the Rays are hosting the Boston Red Sox this week, after he made his first plate appearances at home against the New York Yankees this past weekend.

"He's a prospect for the Majors starting at second base," said Brett's agent, Nik Lubisich of the Northwest Sports Management Group. "It's a big accomplishment."

Brett flew out to left in his first at-bat in the Majors against the Yankees, then walked his second trip to the plate.

Brett then doubled off the wall for a double in his third plate appearance, giving him a .500 average (1-for-2) going into Wednesday's first start against the Red Sox.

"His parents and myself went down to Tampa for the debut over the weekend," Lubisich said. "So it's a big deal for the family."

Brett has been with Lubisich and his Northwest Sports Management Group since he signed with the Rays in 2010, which was also the year the business.
