Special to the Reporter

Mercer Island High School (MIHS) fastpitch gave senior night fans a thriller of a contest on June 4.

The South Mercer field stands were packed with friends and family of the young fastpitch team as they celebrated their four graduating players. Team captains Chloe Larson and Michelle Lyon, both four-year participants, Lauren Majewski, a two-year participant, and Charlise Barokas in her first season were all honored before the undertaking.

Newport (4A) defeated the Islanders (3A), 8-5.

Newport came out strong and scored first, but the Islanders were quick to respond, bringing the score to 3-3 in the bottom of the first. MIHS took the lead in the bottom of the second and held a 5-4 advantage until Newport went ahead 8-5 in the top of the seventh. The Islanders responded with three consecutive hits in a two-out rally that ended the game with a tag-out at home plate and a heartbreaker of a loss.
