Congrats to MIHS Varsity on a successful season

After a 16-4 regular season, MI's  season ended with a pair of heart breaking losses in KingCo tournament losing 1-2 to LW and 10-12 vs Liberty.  There were many fantastic plays and competitive baseball.  A huge thanks to our many fans who supported the team all season.  A huge thanks to our volunteers who made game day the best time around -- with a special shoutout to DJ Rob, Bernadette and Eric for incredible game day food, Mak and Mike our announcer and scorekeeper, Tom and Ray our game changers, Justin for MaxPreps, Jeff our video streamer, Kym our photographer extraordinaire, Lloyd our everything game-day guy, Ed our play by play video man, Erin for signs, Kym and Les for the media guide, Sarah for the Auction, Lisa, Mindy, Robyn and Erik our special event planners and Rich for pre-season workouts. A huge thanks to our booster club donors and community advertisers and sponsors who made our special events like senior night, LL night and alumni / fan appreciation night possible.  A huge thanks to our incredible coaches and dedicated players for making the season one to remember.  Until next year, GO ISLANDERS! 

MI beats Liberty, advances to Kingco Championship

Facing Liberty in the first game of the KingCo playoffs, MI's pitcher Jack Beebe and Liberty's Terry Hayes dueled and kept the game scoreless until the 6th inning.  Liberty scored two runs, and at the bottom of the 7th inning, the Islanders rallied back to score 2 runs, tying the game.  In the top of the 8th inning, pitcher Charlie Seneker and Islander defense held the Patriots scoreless. In the bottom of 8,  Cutter Werdel got things started with a lead-off triple, followed by two intentional walks and then a bases loaded walk-off single by Marques Abulhosn to win the game, 3-2.

The KingCo championship game Wednesday 5/10 at 7 pm is sure to be a competitive match up between MI and Lake Washington. Winner goes to state, loser plays on Thursday for the other KingCo opportunity to go to state.  Let's go MI!! Thank you fans for coming out to support the team!
