The Titans beat Frontenac 5-1 in the regional championship Tuesday.

GALENA, Kan. – (WATCH) Columbus tops Frontenac 5-1 to claim a 3A regional championship Tuesday, and earn a spot in the state tournament for the first time in program history.

“It’s wonderful. It’s wonderful for me, but I’m so happy for these kids,” says Columbus head coach Mick Tedlock, “The community and the parents, they’ve helped so much. These kids have done a great job and they deserve it. The motto the whole year was to finish every game, one game at a time. These kids played their hearts out all year long and they finished, but we’re not done yet. We’re going to go to state and we’re going to represent our region.”
