FORT MYERS, Fla. — Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has another Florida state baseball championship to celebrate.
The school from Parkland, Florida — with a roster that includes some players who were at the school on Feb. 14, 2018, when a shooter took the lives of 17 students, teachers and staff — won the Class 7A state crown Saturday by defeating Spruce Creek High 5-1.
The Eagles took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning, only to see Spruce Creek tie the score in the top of the sixth. But the Eagles scored four times in their half of the sixth, then shut the door in the seventh to capture the title.
It’s the second state championship for Stoneman Douglas, which went 28-2 this season. The Eagles also won the title in 2016.
