EVERETT — Marysville-Pilchuck is going to state, but Arlington needs to beat Meadowdale Saturday to do the same.

M-P qualified for state and the Class 3A Northwest District Championship Saturday by beating Meadowdale 9-1 Tuesday.

The Eagles are having to make their way through the loser’s bracket after being shut out 3-0 by Edmonds-Woodway Tuesday.

Arlington stayed in contention by beating Shorewood 7-2 Wednesday. It will place third at districts if it beats Meadowdale and advance to state that way.

M-P, 18-4, will play E-W for the title.

Owen Bishop combined with two relievers to limit Shorewood to seven hits. Bishop hit a single and Michael Tsoukalas a double to drive in runs for the Eagles.

“It took a couple of innings for us to get into the game and really focus up,” Arlington coach Scott Striegel told The Herald. “Later in the game, we started playing like we have been. We just talked about how we wanted this season to continue to go, and now we’ve got to go win ballgames.”

Tennis

SNOHOMISH – The Arlington doubles team of Ashley Kolbeck-Margarita Muro advanced to districts with a couple of wins Wednesday.

After earning a bye in the first round, they won their second-round match 6-0, 6-0 in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals they won 6-3, 6-4 to qualify for districts. They fell in the title match 6-0, 6-3.

In other doubles matches, Tristan Fetro-Autumn Perkins of MG defeated Hayley Dixon-Mariah Prater 6-4, 6-1, but were eliminated in the quarterfinals, falling 6-1, 6-1. In other matches involving locals, Hannah Jones-Abby Pfeil of MG won seven games, Dana and Taylor Bichel won four, and Emily Gonzales-Annika Hatfield of Arlington won two. Ellie Kikuchi of Arlington was the only local girl to win her first-round tennis singles match Wednesday at the Wesco 3A North Tournament at Snohomish High School.

She won in the first round 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, but lost in the second round 6-0, 6-3.

Meghan Zimmerman of MG won six games, while Arlington’s Faith Holden won two. Sofia Trujillo of MG won a game, as did Cheyenne Coe of M-P., while Paige Bramer of M-P was blanked.

Golf

MARYSVILLE – Cody Oakes of Arlington shot a 77 to lead local golfers at the Wesco 3A North Championships Wednesday at Cedarcrest Golf Course.

Josef Koznek of Everett was the medalist with a 3-over par 73.

Everett won the team title with 400, followed by Arlington 420, Snohomish 421, Oak Harbor 436 and Marysville Getchell 514.
