The Cashmere High School baseball team rebounded from a 3-0 semifinal loss to South Whidbey Friday to win the bronze medal game the next day at the 1A State Championships in Yakima.

The Bulldogs beat Freeman 4-1 in the third-place game.

The Cashmere team came into Yakima believing they would win the state championship, Cashmere coach Jeff Carlson wrote. The 3-0 loss to South Whidbey crushed the Bulldogs' spirits, he added, and "I had concerns about how we would rebound from that loss in less than 24 hours."

Tyler Chipman tossed a complete-game two-hitter against Freeman, with Justice Frazier breaking a 1-1 tie with a two-run single to right-centerfield in the fourth inning. Parker Landdeck tripled and then scored on an error in the sixth inning.

"I was really proud of how we responded on Saturday to bounce back and beat a very good Freeman team," Carlson wrote.

Cashmere's Kert finishes seventh at state tennis
Tyler Kert battled the heat and a hefty bracket to come back with seventh place at the state tennis tournament at the Yakima Tennis Club.

In the first round, Kert beat Kiona Benton's Leonard Gileman 6-2, 6-4, then lost to Seattle Academy's Zamir Birnbach 2-6, 3-6.

Birnbach went on to finish second.

Kert rebounded to beat Deer Park's Niamh Lakewolf 6-1, 6-0.

A loss against Lakewolf would have meant the end of the tournament for Kert. instead, he qualified for the medal round.

In the match for fourth and seventh place, he lost in three sets to last year's fourth-place finisher Michael Hamilton of Spokane's Saint George's School, 2-6, 7-5, 2-6.

"The two played an epic three-set match entertaining the crowd with power and grace," Cashmere coach Ted Smith wrote.

In the final set, both players struggled to hold serve, feeling the effects of two days under the punishing Yakima heat.

Cashmere Track and Field makes state finals in nine events
Led by Luke Simonson's third place in the triple jump and Elli Kimes' fourth place at the pole vault, Cashmere's track and field team placed athletes in nine competitions at the state championship meet in Cheney last weekend.

Simonson jumped 43 feet, 0.75 inches to earn third place, a remarkable comeback after a lackluster showing in the preliminaries.

"Luke barely qualified for the finals, finishing in a tie for ninth with another boy," Cashmere Head Coach Jeff Kenoyer wrote. "Luke's second best jump in the prelims was better than the other boy's so Luke got to jump in the finals."

Simonson finished seventh in the 110-meter hurdles with 16.40 seconds and ninth in the long jump with 21 feet, 0.75 inches. Both his triple jump and long jump mark became new personal records for Simonson.
