The North Mason fastpitch softball team was eliminated from the Class 2A State Tournament at Carlon Park in Selah Friday night. Othello knocked off the Bulldogs in a third round loser out game 13 to 9. The girls from Belfair jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first inning, batting around and getting a grand slam home run from Marissa Brown. Kimber Bolin added a sacrifice fly that scored Emily Younkin.
