BH-BL Spartans celebrate first state title in baseball

Flint led a balanced Spartan offense with three hits, three runs scored and three RBI. Sullivan tripled and doubled, and Bret Dennis added a pair of hits.

"It was not about one or two guys hitting. It was about the whole team," said DeLuca.

The Spartans breezed into the state final with a 7-1 semifinal victory over Saugerties (Section IX) Saturday. Sullivan and Heck each hit two-run doubles, and pitcher Corey Parks limited the Sawyers to four hits in a complete-game effort.

BH-BL graduates 12 seniors including Parks, Flint and Dennis.

"This is bittersweet because I have 12 seniors ... and they've been together since Little League," said DeLuca.""
