Bulldogs Win State ... finally!

For the first time in school history, the Judge baseball team won a state championship.

They sealed the deal this weekend, with a stunning undefeated appearance in the state 3A baseball tournament. With amazing pitching the games were won with 3 complete games (In the three games Pond, Carman, and Walker each started and closed their games), a rare achievement by any high school.

However the championship game against Juan Diego was a nail-biter for the Bulldogs until the bottom of the third inning. The Bulldogs went into the championship undefeated but with a struggling AJ Carman on the mound, things looked bleak, until in the bottom of the third, when one of the star seniors stepped up to the plate. Batting .000 in the tournament, senior Tyson Moll got himself into an 0-2 count (no balls, two strikes). But then it happened, the pitch Moll had been looking for all tournament long. Fastball down the pipe. Tyson Moll went yard; home run, 3-2 Bulldogs. After the bulldogs gained that lead, they went on to win 6-2. AJ Carman fought through a day where he did not have his best stuff, and came out with a complete game, and the state win.
