North Schuylkill wins back to back District titles

It was expected to be a great matchup between two teams playing their best this time of year and it was exactly that.

On Sunday afternoon, defending District XI 4A Champion Northwestern (21-3) went head to head with defending District XI 3A Champion North Schuylkill (20-3) for this years 4A title.

The Tigers loaded the bases in the top of the first inning but MLB Prospect Reggie Crawford struck out the side to end the threat. Crawford would strike out 8 batters and was the winning pitcher as North Schuylkill beat Northwestern 3-2 getting two runs in the bottom of the 7th inning to win the title.

The Tigers will continue their season and will take part in the state play-in game on Friday against District 4 runner-up Selinsgrove/ Danville.

North Schuylkill improves to 21-3 in the year and will face the District 12 Champion in the opening round of states on June 3rd.
