It was worth the wait for Silver Lake. In a championship day delayed by overnight rains, the Eagles downed Wichita-Independent, 7-5, to claim the Class 3A state title.
It was Wichita-Independent's first loss of the season. Silver Lake earned the match-up by downing Central Heights, 4-3, in the semi-final earlier in the day. The Eagles advanced to Saturday's games by beating another previous unbeaten Friday, Lakin.
Tyler Roberts was the winning pitcher for the semifinal game. Brady Abrahams was the winner in the championship.
