Resurrection Catholic baseball wins first-ever state title
There’s a new state champion of the 1A baseball world and for the first time ever that champion is Resurrection Catholic.
Let the dogpile commence at Trustmark Park in Pearl as the Eagles put the finishing touches on a 4-0 complete game shutout in game two over North State champion Biggersville.
RCS put up single runs in the second, fourth, sixth, and seventh innings en route to the school’s first state crown in baseball.
Senior pitcher and infielder J.T. Schnoor was named MVP of the series as the Eagles get their redemption for last year’s South State championship team in the form of a gold ball. Schnoor said, “Awesome. Us seniors have been working at this for six years now, and we were here last year obviously, and to be back here and come out on top is an amazing feeling.”
Head Coach Johnny Olsen said, “We didn’t play our best two games. But our pitching just speaks for itself. To hold this bunch in check like we did. We’ve done it the last month or two with our guys on the mound. They just gut it out and I can’t say enough about them. We were fortunate enough to squeeze in a couple of runs, and I knew if we got four or five runs, we would win. Our guys are just too good on the mound.”
The Eagles finish with an overall record of 33-5 and only one loss all season long to an MHSAA team.
