On Thursday, May 15th the West Geauga Varsity Baseball team battled CVC rival Chagrin in the the first round of the OHSAA State Tournament. The Tigers jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, but at the top of the 3rd inning West Geauga battled back with back to back homeruns to take a 6-4 lead. The two teams toughened it out and came into the 7th inning tied 13-13. Although West played some of their best ball, they could not pull out the win and lost 15-13. Stellar performances were turned in by Joe Leonette, Taylor Crawford and Steve Shipitalo who stole the show with two homeruns and a beautiful throw to second from his catcher position to get the runner out. Good season guys and thank you seniors for your contributions over the past four years.
