Napavine, Onalaska, Tumwater all have five players make WSFCA All-State Team

Previously, the Associated Press compiled all-state teams, but hadn’t done so since the 2019 season.

The Tigers and Onalaska both earned five honorees at the 2B level, sharing the lead for area schools with Tumwater, who had five at 2A.
