State Championship Roundup: Baseball 5/15

Get ready for yet another meeting between District 12-AA powerhouses Spring Hill and Christ Presbyterian Academy on Wednesday.

Both the Raiders and the Lions won their initial games in the Region 6-AA tournament on Monday.
Spring Hill improved to 34-3 by downing Waverly, 4-1.

The win moves Spring Hill, the defending Class AA state champion, to 34-3 on the season and sets up a fourth meeting this season with CPA.

CPA edged Creek Wood, 3-2, on Monday to improve its season record to 27-8 and punch its ticket for the region championship game on Wednesday. The Lions have now won five straight games since being upset by Page in the opening round of the district tournament on May 7.

Two of the Raiders’ losses have come courtesy of the Lions this season. The teams split their two regular season meetings, and Christ Presbyterian tossed a 3-0 shutout against Spring Hill to win the district tournament championship.

In Region 6-AAA, both Williamson County teams emerged victorious as well.

Brandon Johns and Chris McIlvain had three hits apiece as the Spartans routed Hillsboro, 11-1. Blake Money earned the victory on the mound for the Spartans. Summit, now 24-11 and hoping to return to the state tournament for the second straight season, will face District 11-AAA rival Brentwood in the region championship game on Wednesday.

The Bruins edged Overton, 4-3, thanks to a seventh-inning three-run rally that erased a two-run deficit. Jacob Scott smacked a two-run double with one out in the seventh to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs for the Bruins, who improved to 25-9 and earned a Wednesday date at Summit for the region championship.
