    Glacier Peak's Nina Kim (11) slides into home to score a second run for the Grizzlies as Ferndale catcher Drew Westford looks on in the third inning of their 3A district 1 championship game Thursday at Phil Johnson Field. GP won 3-2.

Snohomish isn't the only school from that city to qualify for a state softball tournament. The Panthers' crosstown rival Glacier Peak will head to the 3A tournament for the first time in the school's history.
And the Grizzlies aren't content to just look around and take in the sights at the 3A state tournament that gets underway Friday at the Regional Athletic Complex in Lacey.
“We're excited. We're trying to stay sharp,” said Glacier Peak head coach Caitlin Nies. “We're going in with the mindset that we're not just happy to be there. We want to go there with the mindset that we're going to play well.”
Glacier Peak opens the tournament at noon against Prairie, which finished second in last year's tournament. Nies hopes her team can keep the “same fire and enthusiasm” it had after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Ferndale on May 22 to win the first district title in the history of the Grizzlies' softball program.
Glacier Peak hopes to continue that success as it makes its state debut, where Nies and the Grizzlies have high hopes.
“I want to win it,” Nies said. “That's our mindset. It's our first time, and we don't have any players with experience being there. I'd really like to see us get off to a good start in that first inning and get that under our belt. Then I think we'll be acclimated and ready to go forward and play.”
