GCISD: CHHS Panthers Win First State Championship
The Colleyville Heritage baseball team won its first UIL 5A State Championship with a 14-2 win over Georgetown in the title game at Dell Diamond in Round Rock on Saturday.
The Panthers (39-3) broke a UIL 5A title game record with 18 hits. Joey Koetting was named MVP of the game after going 2-for-2 with three RBIs and three runs scored.
