Meridian holds on to 1st place in Class 1A

Meridian scored four runs in the sixth inning in a 5-1 Northwest Conference win against Bellingham on Thursday, April 28, at Joe Martin Field.

The Red Raiders struggled with bunt defense as they committed two of its three errors leading to four runs and the difference in the game. Meridian is in first place among 1A schools with just two games left in the season.

“It was a big game for us,” Meridian coach Steve Slesk said. “We’re fighting to keep that first place seed.”
