High School Baseball:
Camden Catholic Uses the Long Ball

There's a race for the title taking place and three teams, Seneca, Bishop Eustace and Camden Catholic are all in contention of claiming the Olympic Conference National Division title. Two of those teams met at Camden Catholic where the Fighting Irish was hosting the Crusaders from Bishop Eustace and both teams had the talent to win the big games when needed. Camden Catholic would use their home field advantage and belted four home runs to defeat their opponent. The Irish never trailed in this game and won by a 12-4 margin.

Teams have taken the field all season long in search of two titles, the conference and the state titles. There are other personal accomplishments that the teams put on their agenda, but those trophies look good sitting in their school’s display case. Both of these titles are a representation of a very successful season. Camden Catholic has been enjoying a winning season and they would get this game started off right by scoring two runs during their first at bat and take the early lead. The Irish’s fourth inning success clearly put this game out of reach when they scored six times to take a commanding 8-1 lead. Matt Moceri would hit two home runs in this game, Dan Angelo and Matt Potts also hit homers for Camden Catholic.
