Playing on Thursday, July 19, the Whitman County Cougars lost 14-0 to Northern Lakes in the first round of the Washington Class A American Legion baseball tournament.

The Cougars then dropped into an elimination game against the Lewis and Clark Tigers.

Playing again at Spokane July 20, Lewis and Clark led 13-11 in the fifth inning when the game was called on account of darkness. The Tigers first led 9-0 before Whitman County put together a comeback.

The next day the game resumed. Whitman County tied it in the sixth inning before Lewis and Clark scored two runs in the seventh to win 15-13, ending the Cougars’ season. Leaders at bat for the local boys were Kian Ankerson, Jackson Meyer, Josh Greene, Elliott Lee, Anthony Becker and Kyeong Lim.

Whitman County began the district tournament with an 11-10 win over University July 18, when Nick Strenge and Marcus Hill hit two-out singles in the top of the seventh to lead a rally.

The Cougars finished the summer with an 18-18 record.
