Mossyrock looking to end 1B tenure on a high note


Mossyrock finally got past Naselle on the diamond last spring, topping the Comets in the district title game a year after falling to them in the same game.

But it was Naselle that came away with its second-straight state title, while the Vikings fell one game shy of a trophy in the state tournament.

Before making the jump back to 2B next season, the Vikings will look to make one final leap in the state tournament, one that would put them into the final four and give them a shot at a state title.

Gone is all-area first baseman Keegan Kolb, but back is an experienced group led by Easton Kolb, Hunter Isom, and Peyton McClure.

Easton Kolb and Isom are off to nice starts at the plate this spring, as Isom is 3 for 5 through two games and Kolb is 2 for 4 with a home run.

Kolb also had a nice bounceback win on the mound over Rainier, striking out 10 after Toutle Lake got to him in the season opener.

Freshman Mason Atter has also made a nice early impression on the bump, pitching an inning and a third in the win over Rainier, allowing just an unearned run.

Over in the Coastal League, the Acorns from Oakville are looking to build off a 5-10 campaign, and through five games, they’re 2-3.

Skyler Davis is in his first year at the helm of the baseball team, and he steps into a dugout that features six returning starters from last year’s squad. That list includes the Rodas brothers, Gio and Daniel, who have already combined to throw a no-hitter this spring.

Naselle still has plenty of firepower to its name, including Jacob Lindstrom and Jake Strange, and the Comets are likely a safe bet to be there come playoff time.
