Bob Thomas has guided the Chambersburg baseball team to 676 victories in his 40 years as the Trojans' head coach.
Three of those wins stand out from the rest. And none was bigger than the last.
Chambersburg capped the 20th anniversary season of its first PIAA Class AAA state championship by winning its third state title. The Trojans, state champions in 1984 and 1999 and runners-up in 1979, knocked off Peters Township 12-5 in the championship game Friday at Commerce Bank Park.
"It's just as nice as the others," Thomas said. "But this one was easier because we were so far ahead."
Clinging to a 2-1 lead, Chambersburg (25-4) broke open the game by sending 14 batters to the plate and scoring nine runs - more runs than they scored in their other three trips to the finals combined - against three Indians pitchers in the bottom of the fourth inning for a commanding 11-1 advantage.
