Chapman High School
Seneca High School
Thanks to a hot start offensively, led by a Jack Fassino grand slam in the bottom of the 2nd, and a solid start from Tristen Hudson on the mound, your Seneca Bobcats are the 2017 District 1 Champions. After Fassino’s 2 out, full count bomb, the Bobcats found themselves sitting pretty comfortably in the lead at 6-0. However, the offense was stalled a little bit from that point on. Hudson, with probably his biggest lead of the season, kept the Chapman offense at bay in his 6 innings of work. Hudson scattered 5 hits, 2 walks, and 2 earned runs while striking out 5 in his 6 innings of work. Coleman Smith, came in in the 7th and struck out the final batter of game to seal the victory for Seneca. Smith also had two hits on the night.
The Championship win makes that back-to-back District Championships for the first time in program history. The boys will travel to Woodruff for their first game in the Upper State Tournament on Thursday, April 4th, weather permitting. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 pm.
