Cottonwood romps to 5A baseball title

News

OREM, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – The Cottonwood High Colts, a once dominant baseball program, are state champions again.

Hayden Rosencrantz pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just 2 hits in the run-shortened 5-inning game, as Cottonwood rolled past Lone Peak, 11-0.

The Colts blew the game open with a 6-run third inning. Jeff Borquez had three RBI, while Hunter Blunt had two hits and two RBI.

Cottonwood had scored a total of 10 runs in its first four wins of the playoffs, but erupted for 11 today as they won their first state title since 2008.

“There’s no way to explain it,” Borquez said. “We show up to the field everyday, we trust the process, we trust one another, and we know any single one of us can get the job done at any point.”

“It’s awesome,” added Rosencrantz. “I’ve dreamed about doing this my whole life, and to finally be able to make it come true is awesome, and I’m humbled to do so.”

“I don’t know if I can put it into words or I’d start crying,” said head coach Jason Crawford. “I’m very proud of our team, and they really represented our school. It’s awesome, we needed it.”

Hunter Huegly had two hits and scored two runs, while Daniel Gonzalez also scored two runs with one run batted in.
