Last Sunday, the Newark Catholic baseball team won their seventh OHSAA State Championship in school history. The Green Wave rolled through the postseason, outscoring their opponents 110-8. They capped off their Division IV title with a win over Middletown Springfield, 2-1 in Huntington Park.
Chase Evans sat down with three members of the coaching staff, head coach John Cannizzaro, and assistants Xavier Cook and Ed Clark, to discuss another historic milestone for the program.
Coming into the 2013 state finals, the Newark Catholic Green Wave hadn't won a championship since 2006. That wait finally ended on Sunday.
Behind a dominate performance by Mitch Cox on the mound the Green Wave got just enough runs to earn the school's seventh state championship. Cox gave up one run in the first inning and from there on out was in control. He scattered eight hits while striking out seven but until the third inning he trailed 1-0.
