Eaton wins back-to-back 3A baseball state championships

The Reds defeated University 10-4 in the Class 3A state title game on Saturday.

GREELEY, Colo. — The Eaton baseball is adding some more hardware to its trophy case.

Eaton successfully defended its Class 3A state crown on Saturday, defeating University 10-4 in the title game at Butch Butler Field to repeat as state champions.

The Reds have captured back-to-back state titles and now have 13 in program history.

"It's a good feeling to go back-to-back with my best friends," junior Tate Smith said. "That dogpile -- it's everything we've worked for and I just threw my glove as high as I can, looking for my boys. It was a great feeling."

Eaton caps off its championship season with a 28-2 overall record, which included a 12-game winning streak through the title game.

University finishes 24-6 overall as runner-up.
