Baseball and Track Districts finish in style

The Clay Eagles celebrate a Division I District Championship.

Local teams and athletes were looking to keep their hopes alive of being the best in the state at what they do. In baseball at the first District I final , Maumee took on Ashland at Bowling Green. The Panthers would go up 8-1 in the game, only to see that lead vanish and eventually fall to Ashland by a score of 11-8.

In the other Division I final, Clay was up against Southview at Mercy Field. Southview scored first to go up 1-0 but the Eagles would get two in the third and two in the seventh to seal a 5-2 victory. Clay now plays Ashland in Regionals next week.

Division II was Defiance versus Sandusky Perkins at Memorial Field at Archbold High School. After jumping out to a 5-0 lead thanks to some good base running, the Bulldogs hold on to win 5-2.

The Division I Track and Field District Tournament was at St. Francis High School. Big names like Chris Wormley, Jody Webb, and Brianna Scott-Glover were in action, looking to advance to Regionals in Amherst next week.
