Wow. What a year 2019 was in Northeast Kansas. We are blessed each and every year with some of the top talent in the state of Kansas which delivers some of the highest sports moments throughout the year.

We have tried our best to put together the top 10 high school sports moments of the year and each day leading up to the start of 2020 we will reveal our top moments with No. 4 revealed today and No. 3 on Sunday.

#4 Sabetha Baseball and Golf Goes Back-to-Back

What a run it’s been for high school sports in Sabetha the last two years with six combined state championships including back-to-back in football, baseball and golf.

This year “Title-town” continued to produce state championships as the Bluejays’ baseball and golf teams each captured state championships earning Sabetha the No. 4 moment on our countdown.

The Bluejays’ golf team captured the Class 3A State Championship in Emporia as a team for the second straight and even had an individual state champion as David Pierson won the individual title with a 76.

Jesse Burger also finished one stroke behind to take second, as he won a playoff against four other golfers.

Sabetha was rounded out by Marcus Funk who shot an 85 to take 22nd, while Riley Lierz was 36th with an 89.

Just a few days later the Sabetha baseball team capped off back-to-back state titles with a 10-4 win over Rock Creek in the title game.

It was nowhere near an easy road to the championship for the Bluejays who had to erase a 3-0 deficit in the semifinals before coming back to take down Minneapolis 9-5.

It capped off a magical 21-3 season for the Bluejays’ baseball team who won their second state title in just their third year of existence as a sport.

Senior Joe Gruber earned Class 3A Player of the Year honors in the process by the KABC along with head coach Aaron Frey being named the Coach of the Year.
