CHS is tied for first in the conference on defense, allowing an average of just 2.5 runs per game. The team is tied for second in the conference with a record of 2-1, behind Wesclin (3-0) with their sole conference loss coming to Carlyle — who is also second in the conference.
The baseball Eagles are now ranked No. 1 in the Republic-Times Local Rankings and are No. 2 in the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s Metro Rankings for small schools.
Congratulations Eagles, keep up the good work!
