Fayetteville’s Sisler, Valley’s Bird among Class A all-staters
A team winning four consecutive state championships is a rare feat.
This year’s drama only the beginning for area Class AAA baseball squads
It’s a shame that the state baseball tournament will begin next week at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston without an area representative from Class AAA’s Region 3. Following Independence’s run will be great, but when it comes to doughnuts, sandwiches, paychecks or area representatives in Charleston, the more the merrier.
East falls short of states
It wasn’t pretty, but it was historic: Riverside is heading to the state baseball tournament.
In their third regional final in a row, the Warriors finally broke through Thursday with a 9-4 win over Greenbrier East in the Class AAA Region 3 final at Eric J. Smith Field. That earned Riverside its first state tournament berth in its 15 years of existence.
If high school softball games lasted just five innings, Westside would be undefeated at the state tournament.
Patriots return to Charleston
Baseball has often been called a game of inches. On this night it was more like a millisecond.
Spartans a win away from states
After pulling out a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Shady Spring in 11 innings Tuesday to clinch a spot in the Class AAA Region 3 championship game, Greenbrier East (17-7) spent Wednesday waiting.
Westside hopes to showcase pitching, defense
Compared to many of the teams playing today in the state softball tournament in Vienna, Westside is not exactly an offensive powerhouse.
Dramatic win for Spartans
Standing on third base, Greenbrier East’s Ethan Boone watched as a Josiah Solak popup sailed high into the dark, rainy sky at Spartan Yards in the bottom of the 11th inning and the game knotted at 6.
PikeView has shot at revenge
PikeView owns a win over Independence this season. Somehow, Patriots coach Scott Cuthbert doesn’t suspect it’s enough to satisfy the red-hot Panthers.
Cavaliers look to finally advance
It’s been 11 years since Greenbrier West last played in the state baseball tournament.
