T-Birds have playoffs in sights

By Milo Kabigting - Staff Reporter



If the Lady T-Birds fast-pitch team can remain healthy, it just may make the playoffs, the coach said. 

Head Coach Jason Evans said the high number of games scheduled in a very short time frame is concerning.

The Thunderbird's will have played 12 games within a 10-day span.

"The health of the team these last two weeks is going to be our main concern," said Evans. "We as a staff have to be fully locked in to their well-being. That's my main job as head coach moving forward into playoff time."

Most recently, Highline beat Olympic on April 24, in the first game 19-10, then won the second game by forfeit. 

Highline's Chass Balagso-Baqui and Kiana Kingsley were all over the stat sheet, both having five RBIs, while Jenny Hovland added three hits for the team.

Highline now sits in fifth place in conference play with a record of 8-12, and 14-17 on the season.

They are three games behind Bellevue and Everett, who are tied for third at 15-9.

The top three teams in each region make the tournament, with seven more teams added by rating percentage index, a measure of a team's overall performance. 

Highline finishes its regular season facing the top three teams in the North Region, and two games against Pierce.

The Lady T-Birds traveled on May 2 to Bellevue to play the Bulldogs. Results from the game were not available at the time of publication. 

Highline travels to first place Edmonds (21-1 league play) this afternoon for a doubleheader at 2 and 4 p.m. 

Saturday, the T-Birds host seventh-place Skagit Valley (6-14) at noon and 2 p.m.

Highline next plays Pierce in a pair of home (May 8, 2 and 4 p.m.) and away (May 10, 4 and 6 p.m.) doubleheaders. 

Highline will look to add wins against last-place Pierce (4-16).
