Chapin beats Airport for 4A state baseball title


For the first time since 2002, the Chapin Eagles have won a state baseball championship.

In game 2 of the 4A state title series, Chapin defeated the Airport Eagles 2-1 on their home field to claim the coveted trophy.

"They're telling me to calm down," head coach Scott McLeod said of the final moments, right before his team drenched him with a Gatorade celebration.

"It's cold!" McLeod said of the Gatorade bath. "But it's worth it!"

Sophomore pitcher William Privette was outstanding in the final game of the season pitching a whopping 10 strikeouts to help lead the Eagles to the state championship.

"In the final inning, I was really nervous," Privette said. "That's probably the best feeling I've ever had in my life, and I've been looking forward to that day for a very long time."
