EvCC Baseball Wins NWAACC Championship Title
EVERETT, Wash. – Everett Community College’s baseball team won the Northwest Athletic Association of Community College’s championship title Friday, defeating Pierce College 4-1.
The title is Everett's first in baseball since 1966.
Coach Levi Lacey told The Herald, "It's the best ride I've been on." He took over as the Trojan's head coach in 2002. "I won a national championship as a player, but that doesn't compare to this. Twelve years of support from (athletic director) Larry Walker - the ring means a lot for the team and the program from where we started."
Pitcher Gunnar Swanson, who allowed just four hits during the game, was named the tournament MVP.
