Crosspoint baseball claims district title; soccer teams aim for state

Crosspoint’s baseball team used a three-run first inning to propel itself to the Class 1B West Central / Northwest Bi-District championship Thursday at Valley Ridge Park in Seattle.

Sam Dykstra finished with three hits – including a two-run home run – and three RBI as the Warriors knocked off Mount Vernon Christian 7-5. Dykstra’s two-run shot in the bottom of the sixth inning provided the winning margin for Crosspoint (19-1). Silas Stenerson added three RBI while Thunderr Doty picked up the victory after allowing four runs on seven hits through five innings. He struck out six and walked two.

State tournament seeding committees are scheduled to meet Sunday, at which point Crosspoint will learn its next opponent. Teams qualifying for state must win a pair of regional games May 21 in order to advance to the final four. The state semifinals are May 27 and championship games are May 28.
