Tantasqua Wins Two Day State Championship

"The dream that never ended"

After the first game of the 1977 season, Coach Mike Dube dreamed that his baseball team won the State Championship. In June of that year, the dream actually came true. Tantasqua defeated Drury 9-8 to take the state crown. The rain delayed game took two days to play.
