Eagles Earn Trip to State Baseball Tournament

Update (6/3/17) - CJ lost in the state championship game, 4-0. Congratulations on a great season, Eagles!

"It's a dream come true."

Head baseball coach Mike Barhorst '85 spoke for the entire team after the Eagles clinched a spot in the state semi-finals. The baseball team won their regional final game on Saturday, May 27.

"It's been a tremendous season," Barhorst said.

This is the first time the Eagles have been in the state baseball championship in more than 40 years. The team last won state in 1970 and their last trip to state was in 1975.

"The team has known it's been a long time," Barhorst shared. "It's time for us to make the run; it's pretty exciting."

Team captains Mark Barhorst '17 and Garrett Wissman '17 were freshmen when the team last made it to the regional finals in 2014.

"I'm just really happy," Mark said. "I always knew it was possible and I'm just ready to keep playing."

Wissman agreed, "It's hard to put it in words. We knew we had the team and had the talent. To see it all pays off means a lot."
