Mountain Vista captures 5A baseball championship

The Golden Eagles defeated Valor Christian 3-2 in the Class 5A state title game on Friday.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Mountain Vista baseball is back on top.

The Golden Eagles defeated Valor Christian 3-2 in the Class 5A state title game on Friday at All-Star Park to capture the championship. It is the second title in program history for Mountain Vista, and first since 2018.

"This is one of the best teams I've ever played with. Good group of guys," first baseman Tyler Mejia said. "We love battling. Valor, we love battling with them, have played them twice before. But we came out, did our thing."

It is the second state title this week for Mountain Vista, which also won the 5A boys lacrosse championship on Tuesday.
