Congratulations, Conference Champions!
October 3, 2018
Baseball Champs
On October 3, the baseball team traveled to Prairie Home to compete against the Bunceton Dragons in the CCAA Tournament Championship Game.  It was a close game throughout and the Eagles were down by 1 going into the bottom of the seventh inning.  As the home team, they had the final at-bat of the inning.  The Eagles rattled some bats and were able to get two runners on base.  Thanks to a single by Mack Sorrells and some great base running, both runs scored and the Eagles clinched the victory and the Championship title with a score of 9-8.
Congratulations, Eagles!
