Wa-Hi Slowpitch Softball Team Honored

In 2018-2019 Walla Walla Public Schools started a new tradition of honoring state champion individuals and teams at a board meeting. Students and teams qualify for this recognition by finishing in the top three at state for athletics, music, drama, FFA, FBLA, debate, JROTC and any other state qualifying activities.

This is an opportunity for these outstanding students to be recognized by the Superintendent and School Board.

During the November 21, 2023 school board meeting, the students and coaches from Walla Walla High School’s Slowpitch Softball Team were honored. Congratulations to the Walla Walla High School Girls Slowpitch Softball Team for placing third in the 2023 Washington Interscholastic Activities Association tournament.

The Blue Devils opened tournament play by defeating Juanita 15-5. In the next round, the team faced off against the Mount Spokane Wildcats, who had been ranked #1 in the state for most of the season. The Blue Devils fell by a score of 20-17 in what coach Bill Plucker described as a championship caliber game played by both teams. Wa-Hi defeated Lake Washington 16-5 to advance to the 3rd/4th place game where the ladies overwhelmed Columbia River by a score of 31-8.

Congratulations to Coach Plucker and his team for a fantastic season. With a team philosophy ‘I am because we are,’ the Blue Devils finished with a record of 21-5.” The team finished 4th in 2022.

“On behalf of the school board and our entire school district, congratulations again to all of these outstanding students, said Superintendent Smith. “Your efforts and dedication model our Vision of Developing Washington’s Most Sought-After Graduates.”
