The Central Catholic Eagles’ baseball team has been on the cusp of a state championship the past two seasons, falling in the Class 1A title game.

Third time’s the charm?

Case and the rest of the Eagles look to cap their season with a Class 1A state title this weekend at the Class 1A State Tournamenti in Sulphur. The Eagles will be making their third straight semifinal appearance and will be looking to advance to the state championship game for the third straight year after finishing as state runner-up the past two seasons.
