Columbus Baseball Eyes Capitol North Crown

The Columbus High School baseball team is eyeing up a Capitol North Conference championship as we head down the homestretch of the season.  After dropping three of their first five games, the Cardinals have won five of their last six games and currently are 7-4 on the season. They sit on top of the league with a 5-1 record.

“We’ve turned the corner here and are playing good baseball and are looking forward to finishing up the end of the year.”  Cardinals coach Tim Stormer told  “We’re relatively young and I think our youth caught up to us just a little a bit (early in the season) and I think we have definitely got off to a lot better starts in games and that has made all the difference in the world playing good baseball.”

The Cardinals won back-to-back Capitol North crowns in 2017 and 2018 before finishing tied for 3rd in 2019.  2020’s season was cancelled because of the pandemic.

The Cardinals will host Lodi tonight.  The first pitch is set for 6:30pm.
