The Camas-Washougal Lightning Junior Babe Ruth baseball team beat Pasco 13-12 Friday to advance to bracket play in the Southwest Washington Babe Ruth state tournament, at Wheeler Field in Centralia.
The Lightning lost to Hazel Dell Metro 11-5 Saturday. On Sunday, Hazel Dell defeated Centralia to win the state championship. The victory springboards the team from Vancouver into the regional tournament in Kennewick.
The shorthanded Lightining still made their hometowns proud. The 10 players from Camas and Washougal included Connor Stevenson, Dan Holmes, Alex Kuhn, Maxx Samuelson, Spencer Riggins, Matt Quintana, Adam Kretzschmar, Colin Biggs, Zach Hausinger and Nick Costa-Stange.
