Bainbridge won their state regional, but lost twice during state championship weekend to finish 4th in state. Mercer Island of Kingco 3A went on to win the 3A state championship game over Shorewood.

Metro Senior All-Star Game (Feeder for All-State Game)

It had been over a decade since the last Metro 3A all-star game was held. With some new blood in the Metro league, a decision was made to bring it back. Ballard coach Doug Montgomery organized the 2015 game and invited seniors from the all-conference teams to participate. The Bulldogs had a couple players selected for the game while coach Chris Moedritzer was chosen as an assistant. David Brinkley pitched three innings in relief in the conference all-star game, allowing one run. Third baseman Henry Freed was hitless in three at-bats, but had a sacrifice fly to deep center field.

2014 marks the end of an era for Garfield athletics, with the school dropping down to 3A for the upcoming school year. As a result, Bulldogs sports teams will move from the Kingco 4A conference to the Metro 3A conference, which the school left back in 1997 along with rivals Roosevelt and Franklin. Ballard moved up several years later with Franklin dropping back down not long afterward. Current members Ballard and Roosevelt will also move back to 3A next season, putting all 10 Seattle public high schools in the same athletic conference along with the 6 private school members of Metro 3A. The divisional alignment of the 16 teams has yet to be announced by the athletic directors, but it should make for less travel and a renewal/revival of rivalries among the city schools. Garfield had a 3-1 record against Metro opponents in 2014 nonleague games (win at Chief Sealth, win at West Seattle, loss at Blanchet, win vs Hale). We look forward to an exciting 2015 baseball season!

Kingco 4A Postseason Recap

Last month’s Kingco tournament saw the Crest division dominate the Crown division similar to how the divisions fared against each other during the regular season. Roosevelt was the lone Seattle school to qualify, making its first and only appearance in the Kingco 4A postseason tournament. Eastlake defeated Woodinville in the championship game, with both teams locking up the automatic state berths. Redmond came in 3rd place in the conference tournament to earn a spot in the district playoff game, but would lose in the final inning and narrowly miss making the state tournament. Eastlake lost in the state regionals, while Woodinville went on to place 4th at state in Pasco.


2014 Kingco All-Star Game

One player was selected to represent the Bulldogs in the Kingco Senior All-Star Game at Woodinville HS on June 5th. The 4A team defeated the 2A/3A team 4-2 in the afternoon game and then held on for a 6-4 win in the nightcap to sweep the doubleheader. Garfield’s Derek Billey went 1 for 4 with a stolen base and a run while playing right field in the second game.


Thanks to everyone for supporting, watching, and following Garfield Bulldogs baseball throughout the 2014 season!
