The storied LWHS softball and baseball programs, led by Head Coaches Jodee Hull and Derek Bingham, have graduated countless collegiate student-athletes with a handful being drafted and playing at the professional ranks. This year’s programs are living up to their sterling reputation as they head toward the KingCo 3A Playoffs with both teams ranked in state with aspirations of adding to the trophy case. 

Kirkland's rich history provides an inspiring backdrop for the young athletes at Lake Washington High School. The achievement of the 1982 team in the Little League World Series featured on ESPN+ “30 for 30” highlights just how deep these roots go. Plus, the ongoing tradition of hosting the annual Juniors Softball World Series at Everest Park in late July further cements the area's commitment to nurturing top-tier talent of future Kangs.

The success of these foundational experiences has undoubtedly contributed to the legacy and accolades earned by the LWHS Diamond Club teams. With multiple state championships and numerous KingCo & district titles, the commitment from past and present community members, coaches, and players continues to make a significant impact for the LWHS Softball & Baseball programs. 

For anyone passionate about fostering local talent through team experiences, getting involved with the LWHS Booster Club is a great step. Thank you for sharing this exciting news and for supporting the diverse range of programs at Lake Washington High School. Go Kangs!

Special thanks to all the 2024 Diamond Club Sponsors.
