Chapmanville Boys Make it to States

The boys downed Sissonville Thursday night to make a trip back to states for the first time since 2001.  The Tigers won 10-1 over the Indians.  Jordan was the winning pitcher on the mound.  He gave up one earned run while giving up 6 and striking out 7.  Ellis says Jordan keeps his fast ball around 83 miles per hour, but was a little under that Thrusday night.  However, he still gave an ourstanding and strong pitching performance.  Both Tyler and Jordan had homeruns in the game giving Chapmanville a lift of energy while killing the Indians.  "They flat-out beat us," Sissonville Coach Kenny Harper said. "We knew coming in that they could pound the ball. We thought we were prepared for it, but obviously we weren't. That one inning they pounded it, what can you say? "It got out of hand and there was nothing we could do about it." Chapmanville has won only 2 state titles falling in the years of 1987 and 1997.  Ellis says he is excited to be back to be back.  The players are ready to play and hopefully they bring home another state title.  Chapmanville is scheduled to play the winner of Braxton County and Frankfort on Friday at the Power Park in Charleston.  Everyone come support and we wish them the best of luck.
