Scott City champs

Saturday, June 7, 2008

Scott City High School's baseball team recently completed one of the most dominant hardball seasons in recent memory. On their way to winning the Class 2 state title in Springfield last week, the Rams compiled a 23-1 record under second-year head coach Lance Amick.

What an impressive run. Congratulations to Scott City on a well-deserved championship.

The Rams were one of three local teams to make it to the final four in different class sizes. Oran, which has established a wonderful baseball tradition with several appearances in the final four over the years, came up a bit short, and Notre Dame Regional High School had one bad inning in the state semifinals.

But the point is this: We love our baseball in Southeast Missouri. And our boys in Cape Girardeau and Scott counties showed they can play with the best.
