The Cadets claimed the school's first baseball title since 1961.  Chase Marini and Brad Stewart hit solo homeruns, and Al Pesto worked a complete-game on the mound to lead BC.  Pesto allowed only two unearned runs in the bottom of the first inning.

After raising the trophy many players rushed to centerfield to slide in the mud.  The game was in doubt for a few hours due to showers and thunderstorms.  The first pitch took place two hours and 45 minutes after the scheduled 1:30 start.

Head Coach Kevin Farmer returned to his Alma Mater after leading Calvary to a couple of State titles.  Pesto transferred in from Savannah Country Day and Marini from Savannah Christian.  The Cadets put together the puzzle and claimed the State Title... playing all playoff games at home at BC.
