AURORA — The Class 5A District 8 baseball championship game started out promising for Columbine.
The Rebels plated a pair of runs with a walk of junior Mikey Griebel, followed by a pair of RBI hits by senior Tommy Gillman and junior Chase Anderson to give the No. 11 seed an early 2-0 lead on host and No. 6 seed Grandview.
Unfortunately for Columbine, it would be the only runs the Rebels could muster in what would eventually materialize into a season-ending 5-2 loss on the Wolves’ home field.
