The Baseball team put together an exceptional performance this weekend to walk away District 6 Champions. In game one against Longmont, Daniel Butler threw a complete game three-hit shutout with eight strikeouts to lead the team to a 9-0 victory. On offense, Butler also led a team effort with a home run and three RBIs. In game two against host team Delta, the Eagles scored in every inning as they overwhelmed the hometown Panthers, 15-0 in five innings. Butler and Hayden Gerlach hit two home runs in the game combined for seven RBIs. First baseman Marco Castilla had two hits and four RBIs as well.
This week the Eagles move into the double-elimination State Tournament Series. Their first game is against Montrose at Cherokee Trail High School Friday at 12:30pm. If they win, they will play again at 3:00pm at Cherokee Trail. If the Eagles win both, they play on Saturday at 3:00pm at All-Star Park. If they lose the first game, they play at 10:00am at All-Star Park.
