The Miami Marlins drafted Lake Washington High baseball standout first baseman Torin Montgomery in the 35th round of the 2019 Major League Baseball first-year draft on June 5.

The Boise State commit and first-team 3A KingCo player was the 1,041st player drafted overall.

USA Today High School Sports ranked the state-champion Kangs 23rd in the country in its Super 25 Baseball Rankings on May 27. The Kangs finished their season 26-2.

Lake Washington won the state title with a 3-2 victory over O’Dea on May 25 at GESA Stadium in Pasco. Montgomery singled in the Kangs’ seventh consecutive elimination-game victory.

“This program has welcomed us all in with open arms and has tailored us into better ball players,” Montgomery said in a Reporter story. “We’re just drilling in the idea to our guys that we gotta earn everything, we gotta work for everything that comes our way and I think that’s part of our success.”
