Pittsburg advances to 5A state tournament
The Dragons beat DeSoto 8-3 Tuesday
PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Pittsburg Purple Dragons are heading to the 5A state tournament.
The Purple Dragons beat DeSoto 8-3 on Tuesday night to win a regional championship and earn their spot at state.
“We’ve been so close the last two or three years,” says Pittsburg head coach Keith Matlock, “A lot of these guys have had the opportunity to do it in basketball, and in football and maybe a different sport if they played that. But to be able to do it in baseball for the first time in their high school career is definitely special. You could see by their reaction that it was really special to them.”
