When all the counting was done, the Marysville Little League program's record revealed 10 titles in 15 post-season tournaments, including two state competi- tions. Head coach Hay Ewing's Marysville- Pilchuck High School Tomahawks were the trend-setters. With their backs to the wall, the Hawks shook off a five-game los- ing streak to clinch the third and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with four straight wins. Cascade Bruins and Mariner Marauders took their lumps as the Tomahawks claim- ed two-game sweeps from beth clubs in their stretch drive to post-seasen play. The Tomahawks then went on to finish second behind league champion Oak Har- bor Wildcats in the district tournament -- that merely setting the stage for a confron- tation with defending state champion Newport in the Regional tournament at Kent. Marysville nipped Newport 3-2 and halted Bremerton 5-3 to earn the Tomahawks' first berth in the state tour-, nament in nine years.
