The one-game Conference Championships took place earlier today in the Nor-Am High School League, and the results are in: The best teams won and now advance to the best-of-three High School World Series!
Over in the Independent Conference, Dallas Sports Academy Bats (26-16) squared off against the Niagara Academy Fighters (31-11), with Niagara the clear favorites heading into the game, having beaten the Bats 2-1 during the season.
But big bat RF Ben Price was the hero for Dallas knocking a 2-run homer and going 2-for-5 with 6 RBIs in the game, a 10-8 win for the Bats.
Over in the International Conference, the Guadalupe High School Slashers obliterated the Anguilla Prep School Oceans 16-9, with RBIs coming from right through the Mexican team’s lineup, but in particular 1B Jim Dudley, who was 4 for 5 with 3 RBIs.
Guadalupe and Dallas square off on April 20 for a best-of-3 High School World Series.
