American Legion baseball
The Olympic American Legion baseball team, coached by Olympic High School baseball coach and athletic director Nate Andrews, finished in second place in the North Division with a 10-5 record, behind North Kitsap (13-2).
Olympic faces Bonney Lake, which took second in the East Division, at 9 a.m. today at Capital High School in Olympia. The team would advance to the state tournament with a win today and an additional win tomorrow.
American Legion Baseball is a summer league designed to promote baseball interest in all young players, regardless of skill level and experience.
“It’s really a neat thing,” Andrews said. “This is for all youngsters in Kitsap who want to improve their baseball skills.”
