The summer is in full swing for all 5 teams. Highlights of the summer to date are the 15's winning the Palouse summer series championship for the second year in a row. The 16's have won the Seattle Elite wood bat invitational. The 18's are competing through the first season in the Seattle Premier League and working daily on communicating with college coaches to help give players opportunity at the next level. 

Excited to congratulate Nate Sadler on his hiring at the Head Coach at Juanita HS. This makes 3 Merchant coaches who are Head Coaches in the Kingco conference as Nate joins Derek Bingham (Lake Washington HS) and Craig Bishop (Inglemoor HS)

Also excited to congratulate 13U assistant coach Paul Falco on his commitment to Everett CC to return to his dream of playing college baseball
