With the June 2 completion of the state baseball tournament, another year of high school sports is in the books in West Virginia.
In the Class AAA championship Sunday at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston, St. Albans logged a 5-0 win over defending champion Hurricane to capture the Class AAA crown, its second in three years.
In Class AA, the Bridgeport Indians toppled Frankfort 5-2 in the championship outing. It marked Bridgeport's sixth straight double-A title.
Moorefield defended its 2018 championship by registering a 4-2 victory over Charleston Catholic in the Class A finale.
In one of two Class AAA semifinals, Hurricane's Jonathan Blackwell, son of John and Tammy Blackwell, struck out nine, yielded just two hits and walked one in hurling a complete-game shutout over Hedgesville. The Hedgesville starter, Chase DeLauter, also allowed only two hits and fanned eight during his team's 1-0 setback.
Blackwell, the grandson of Beech Glen residents Junior and Shirley Grose and Tom and Sharon Blackwell of South Charleston, was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Brenden Lewis and Joel Gardner.
Blackwell has signed to pitch for Coastal Carolina.
