Two teams battling for GSL crown


It seems like the Greater Spokane League baseball race is going to come down to two schools: 3A Mt. Spokane and 4A University.

Those two put some space between themselves and the rest of the field Thursday when the Titans rallied to defeat Mead and the Wildcats defeated Ferris. Mt. Spokane is two games up on U-HI, with the Titans another two ahead of Mead.

In other sports' action Thursday, the Shadle Park Highlanders, ranked 21st in the nation, won again, and the rout of Mt. Spokane is included in this roundup.

From Idaho, Jenna DeLong struck out 12 in Coeur d'Alene's 18-1 victory over Post Falls.

• There are a couple of big invitational track meets on the West Side this weekend. UPDATE: There is also one in Kitsap County.

• Monroe's softball team remained undefeated behind the pitching of junior Jordan Birch.
