The W.C. East players celebrate their PIAA District 1 Class AAAA title win

In beating Council Rock North by a 6-2 score last week, West Chester East won its second district baseball championship in six seasons. The Vikings also gained revenge for a 6-5 loss to the Indians in 2003. East, though, softened the sting of that year's title-game loss by going on and winning the PIAA state championship.

Since 1983, W.C. East has won three district championships (in 1991, the Vikes knocked of Neshaminy, 12-1).

In 2006, the baseball playoffs switched from three classifications (A, AA, AAA) to four (A, AA, AAA, AAAA).

Below is a list of the results of the championship games at the highest enrollment classification since 1983.

Enjoy the state playoffs games...the Road to Altoona!
