The single-game elimination is a rematch of the 2017 neutral-site best-of-the-three series which the Eagles dominated 17-2 and 9-5 during a raucous playoff run that resulted in the program’s 24th state championship, second in four years with head coach Ryan Lousteau, and capped a sizzling two-year stretch of 64-7-1.

Eagle Baseball is seeking its fourth Final Four with Lousteau since 2014 and eighth in nine years dating to the five-year tenure with Astros Hall of Fame icon Craig Biggio that included state titles in 2010-11. The Eagles began the postseason defeating Addison Trinity Christian 8-2 and 12-3 at Fr. Wilson Field to clinch the set after dropping the series opener.

Antonian disposed of Plano Prestonwood Christian Academy 6-1 to open the state tournament.

Eagle Fight Never Dies!

    There have been a few comments made recently that even though the team is again vying for its 25th state baseball championship, that at 25-12 thus far, that the team is having an overall record thus far that doesn’t match up with previous years of 35-40 wins. I think that there are many teams in the area/state that would take 25 wins in ANY sport! At STHS, we don’t re-build, we just reload! Congratulations to the entire coaching staff for another great job of developing players and teams who meet and surpass our high standards of success. The Class of 2018 STHS Sports HOF includes 2 former baseball players whose achievements surpassed our highest standards of achievement. Richard Kristine-Class of 1957, went on to play at Rice University, and won the old SWC batting title in 1961. Jeff McCurry, Class of 1988, pitched in the major leagues for several teams, including the Pittsburg Pirates, and 4-5 other teams in the mid1990’s-early 2000’s. There are also a dozen or more outstanding baseball players already inducted into the STHF, and there will be others in the future who will follow. STHS is recognized by many experts as having one of the most successful high school baseball programs in Texas and the nation, rivaling our great opponent Bellaire among others, including both private and public schools.
