As both Holy Family (22-7) and Legacy (15-12) baseball started their seasons slow at 4-4 and 1-6, their runs to the Final 4 (4A) and Final 8 (5A) respectively wrapped up their resilient and historical runs on the diamond.
For the Tigers, after a dominating 13-4 win over Cheyenne Mountain (22-6), an 11-7 loss to Silver Creek (27-4) put Holy Family in a bind with the double-elimination format of the tournament. Bouncing back with a 13-2 win of Erie (16-12) behind 13 hits, HF couldn’t surpass eventual champion Pueblo West (28-3) six days later at UCHealth Park in Colorado Springs May 31, 14-1. The Tigers accumulated just five hits against Cyclones’ senior pitcher Nate Denniston.
Legacy’s season ended the week prior, on May 25, with back-to-back defeats to Grandview, 4-1 and Rocky Mountain 6-1. Combining for only six hits in the two contests, the group that had been averaging 11 knocks in the previous two playoff games could never get the bats rolling the final two affairs.
