South Whidbey's Elizabeth Donnelly qualifies for second national meet

  • Jul 22, 2015 at 4:00PM

Before 8:50 p.m. on Sunday, Elizabeth Donnelly wasn’t going to the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics in Jacksonville. Not because she hadn’t qualified — Donnelly finished fifth in the 800-meter race in the 15-16 age group at the regional meet in Portland — but because she had family obligations in Maine. But by the 9 p.m. deadline to register for the meet, she was in. And now, the South Whidbey High School sophomore will compete for a national title once again, having qualified for the meet in 2014.

Drew Fry doesn’t get nervous during the big moment in a game. Well, maybe just a little bit, the pitcher and shortstop says. That’s because Fry’s mind is elsewhere. It’s focused on the next pitch, the next strike. And after South Whidbey’s 11/12 Little League All-Stars defeated Sedro-Woolley 3-1 in the second of two championship games in the District 11 tournament Thursday night, it’s on to the next game. South Whidbey will face District 4’s champion at the 2015 Washington State Little League Baseball State Tournament at 11 a.m. July 25 in Bothell.
