Mark Morris tuned up for the playoffs and extinguished Woodland’s postseason hopes with a 7-1 victory in the Greater St. Helens 2A League baseball finale for both teams Friday at Mark Morris.
Woodland’s promising young roster will compete in the Southwest 1A Trico Division next season, following reclassification. The Beavers finished 7-12 overall and 4-8 in league, almost doubling their win total from 2011.
The Monarchs (16-3, 11-1 in league) enter the Southwest 2A District playoffs as the GSHL 2A No. 1 seed and will host the No. 4 team from the Evergreen 2A Conference at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Woodland’s loss Friday clinched the third and final district playoff berth for R.A. Long.
MM’s Kalani LaFave started and scattered three hits over four innings to earn the win. He surrendered two hits in the first inning but coaxed an inning-ending double play, and Mark Morris scored five runs in the bottom of the first to take control of the game.
