A softball game at Olympic High School between Port Angeles and Olympic was suspended in the bottom of the third inning and the score tied 2-2 “due to an incident involving the Olympic coaches and spectators. The umpires left the field, ultimately ending the game,” according to coach Morgan Worthington.
The Olympic League athletic directors, umpire association and potentially the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association are expected to make a determination on how to proceed with this game.
