St. Andrew’s Episcopal Wins First District Title Ever

The 2017 2A-4 champion St. Andrew’s Episcopal Lions.

Courtney Brooks doubled to drive in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning on Friday, as St. Andrew’s Episcopal completed an improbable journey by winning 5-4 over City of Life to earn the 2A-4 district title. Competing in district play for the first time this season, the three-year old program wasted no time in adding its first district trophy to its display case.

“I’m absolutely thrilled for our school, our families and our kids,” Lions first-year manager Andy Wells said. “It’s absolutely amazing; this might be a first. Our Athletic Director and Pitching Coach, Jason Fletcher, started the program three years ago and he put together a great plan. He deserves enormous credit for this.”

The Lions (23-3) have been an offensive monster all season, scoring 271 total runs at an average of nearly ten runs per game. But in Friday’s championship it was the pitching that stepped up as well, as starter Lee Kubitschek carried his club into the seventh inning before turning things over to Brendan O’Shea to record the final four outs that earned him his seventh victory of the season.

St. Andrew’s only had three hits on the night, the other two coming on singles from O’Shea and Matt Gustin. But, just as the team has all season, it capitalized on every base runner to push runs across the board.
