Surprise Tigers prepping for State Title run

Last year's U-E Tigers baseball team was THE team to beat. A Section IV Title was a certainty and a State Title was a distinct possibility. Led by 12 seniors, the season was progressing just as it was supposed to until a heartbreaking 16-3 upset loss in the Section IV semifinals. A year later, the Tigers started the season 1-7, the Tigers caught fire and finished the regular season with a 6-9 record. They took down 7-time Section Champ Maine-Endwell in the Section semis and then dispatched Vestal on Friday for the Section Title.

For a team that won two state titles in three years in 2001 and 2003, but none since, they're happy to be a part of the U-E baseball tradition and back in the state playoffs. But, now, they have their eyes on a bigger prize.
