Seaside's return to the state playoffs was a short one, as the Henley Hornets defeated the Gulls 12-0 May 22 in a Class 4A baseball first round game in Klamath Falls.

Henley scored a run in the first inning, then tacked on five in the second for an early 6-0 lead.

The Hornets finished with 12 hits off four Seaside pitchers, including doubles for Blake Loney and junior Heith Rasica, a triple by senior Hayden Rasica, and three home runs — two for Heith Rasica and one by John Tacchini.

Hayden Rasica pitched all seven innings for the Hornets, allowing four hits with 11 strikeouts and no walks.

In the first year under head coach Dan McFadden, the Gulls finished 11-13 overall, 5-7 in the Cowapa League.
