The Paonia Eagles baseball team defeated Sargent’s Farmers and the Las Animas Trojans at the Region 4 baseball tournament last Saturday in Pueblo. The Eagles (15-5-1) now head to the final four segment of the 2A tournament. They face No. 3 Resurrection Christian Cougars (18-3) Friday at Englewood High School in Denver.
The last time Paonia made the final four in baseball, this year's seven seniors were sophomores. They were blanked in the semifinals by a bigger, more experienced Resurrection Christian Cougar's team.
