Eagles tripped three times by Fort teams

The holiday weekend proved to be busy and challenging for CCHS’ baseball team, dropping a trio of games to Fort Wayne Northrop and Dwenger. The squad started the stretch Friday night with a home loss, 7-3, against Fort Wayne Northrop. This game also was a chance to formally recognize the nine seniors, with many of them playing together since they all began in Little League. The Eagles’ entire senior line-up came out strong with Justin Stout on the mound and runs in both the bottom of the first and second innings to take a 2-0 lead. However, the top of the third would prove difficult for the Eagles. The Bruins would score six runs, including a three-run homer by Colin Brockhouse. The third inning is when the Eagles and the Bruins scored their last runs of the game. To read the rest of this story, see the May 28 issue of The Post and Mail. Don't have a subscription?
