Montgomery, Ala. (al.com) - It took a game longer than they would have liked, but the Madison Academy baseball team defended its state championship and made history in the process.
The Mustangs bounced back from a series-opening loss Thursday to defeat Geneva 7-2 an 14-2 (five innings) for the Class 3A state title today at Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery. The victory makes Madison Academy the first AHSAA member to ever win baseball, football and boys basketball championships in the same school year.
Second-ranked Madison Academy (29-13) took advantage of Geneva (26-11) pitching problems to jump to a 6-0 lead in the first inning of Game 3. Geneva starter Scott Stough (10-2), a Troy signee, was pulled after he walked two, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch before recording an out. He also started Game 2 and was pulled after walking three in 1/3 of an inning.
