Raider baseball competed for a state berth until the very last moment possible Saturday, finishing sixth in the district tournament.

The Raiders had defeated Kittitas on the May 11 to stay alive in the tournament. In the first game Saturday, the Raiders faced the Warden Cougars. Lake Roosevelt and Warden played a tight game. The final score favored Warden 5-4.

LR was not yet done as they still had one more shot at the state tournament. District 5-6 was allotted five spots to state this year.

The Raiders had to get past the Liberty Bell Mt. Lions in the afternoon game to move on to the first round of state at Anacortes May 23. LR split the season series with Liberty Bell, but LR did not have enough gas left in their tanks for a comeback Saturday when Liberty Bell won 4-2.

LR finishes the season with a 17-9 overall win-loss record, looking to having another winning season next year.
