Great Bridge wins Va. state high school baseball championship

I covered South County High School (Fairfax County, Va.) for the second half of their baseball season, writing a feature about how the team meshed once all the players entered middle school and began playing together instead of against each other (as they had in little league).

I followed the Stallions through the playoffs, which included a Patriot District title, a Northern Region title and a pair of wins in the state playoffs.

They reached the title game against Great Bridge with a 28-0 record and were looking to cap their season with a victory. But South County, a team known for its great hitting, went cold in the championship game and lost, 5-3.
