Chugiak Legion A wins state title over No. 1 Kenai

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Aug 6, 2016

Chugiak delivered a 12-3 victory over Kenai Post 20 in the championship game at Bartlett High School.

The teams came into the title game as the top two seeds - Kenai No. 1, Chugiak No. 2.

Smith had the hot bat, going 2-for-4 with a walk, two doubles and six RBIs.

Cambridge flirted with a complete game, going 6.1 innings and giving up only one earned run. 

“The win was a great team victory, with contributions by all,” Chugiak coach Bill Smith told me.

Chugiak finished 17-7 and was the only team in Alaska to beat Kenai this year. The Twins won 28 of 30 games, with both losses coming to Chugiak.

The Mustangs also won 5-2 in the title game of the Chugiak Wood Bat Invitational in early July.

“Coaches Mike Gullett, Steve Hall and I are really proud of the way the boys fought all season,” Smith said.
