Once again, as I’ve often said when introducing Chapin’s teams during their visits to the State House, You can’t spell Champion without CHAPIN!
The baseball team became the school’s third State Championship squad this year – with boy’s soccer and cheerleading winning titles earlier this year.

Chapin baseball moved to No. 1 in the Class 4A rankings early in the season and stayed there.
The Eagles capped off their impressive season Wednesday night with a 2-1 victory against Airport to sweep the best-of-three state championship series. It’s the program’s 11th state title, but first since 2002 when the Eagles won it in Class 2A.
“It’s about time, huh,” Chapin coach Scott McLeod said. “Somehow, we were ranked preseason No. 1 and we stayed with that the whole time. We never faltered. The kids kind of liked it. I like to be in the back and try to sneak to the front, but to be in the front the whole time was challenging for us, but the kids embraced it.”
