Congratulations to our De La Salle Collegiate Varsity Baseball Team, winners of the MHSAA Division 1 Baseball Championship.
The Pilots beat Saline 7-6 in the title game on June 18 at Michigan State University. Photos online.
The Pilots reached the title game with a stunning win in the semi-finals over nearly unbeaten Traverse City West, and a quarterfinal win over CHSL rivals U. of D.
The championship is the fourth baseball title for DLS. The Pilots won the championship in 1993, 2000, and 2009, and reached the title game in 2012 against Hudsonville.
The win was Coach Matt Cook’s first championship as head coach, since taking over the job in 2011.
The Pilots finished the 2016 season at 28-13, and had a 10-10 record in the CHSL.
