4A: Jackson 16, Lake Stevens 2

With rain wiping out most of the the first day of competition Friday at Dwight Merkel Field in Spokane, Jackson High School was faced with the task of winning four games on Saturday to repeat as state champions. And they were up to the task.

Iyanla DeJesus pitched all four games for Jackson, including the 16-2 state title-clinching win over Lake Stevens as the Timberwolves rolled to a second consecutive 4A softball state title.

Jackson's day started at 8 a.m. with a 4-3 victory over Camas, then continued at noon with a 7-2 win over Tahoma in the quarterfinals. The Timberwolves held off Redmond 4-2 in the semifinals at 4 p.m. before taking on Lake Stevens in the championship at 7 p.m.

3A: Garfield 10, Yelm 4

Garfield defeated Yelm, 10-4, to win the Class 3A state championship on a rainy Saturday afternoon at the RAC in Lacey.

And the Bulldogs became the first Seattle metro school to accomplish that feat.
