The Campbell County High School baseball team enjoyed an impressive run at the state championship this year, but that ended Saturday with a 1-0 loss to Louisville’s St. Xavier high school.
2016 marked the third consecutive year that a high school team from Northern Kentucky has made it to the state final. Last year, the Highlands Bluebirds were defeated by West Jessamine High, and St. Xavier beat Simon Kenton in the 2014 final.
CCHS coach Scott Schweitzer expressed pride for his Camels team.
“I can definitely smile from what these kids did,” Campbell County coach Scott Schweitzer said after the game. “That’s the first runner-up trophy that I’ll ever gladly take back to school with me, you know. St. X was great (Saturday) and I thought we were great. They were just a little better. So I can walk away with my head high, knowing we did everything we could as coaches and players to win a state championship. It was an awesome experience, and expect to see us back.”
