Semifinals (District Championship Games):
Elkhart Tri-State d. Scott County
Paola 9, Baxter Springs 7

State Championship Game:
Paola 16, Elkhart Tri-State 13 (TITLE)


Summary:

Paola survived an 11-run first inning onslaught, then rallied to beat Elkhart to win the Kansas state title. After Elkhart scored 11 in the top of the first, they managed only two runs the rest of the way; Paola tallied 16 in its comeback win.

Paola's semifinal win over Baxter Springs was a mirror image of the title game: Paola jumped to a 9-0 lead after 1-1/2 innings, but managed to hold on as Baxter scored one in the second, one in the third, and five in the fifth inning. Paola capitilized on five Baxter errors to jump to the early lead.
