Grayson Baseball Wins JUCO World Series

5-30-08 -- Six days ago, the Grayson Vikings took the field for their first game of the 2008 Junior College World Series. Tonight they leave Grand Junction as the new National Champions for the first time since 2000.

Grayson took on the Shelton State Buccaneers, a team they beat two days ago in a run rule. The Vikings finished with a perfect 5-0 record at the tournament.

The Vikings took the lead early going up 3-1 in the first inning. Then in the third, Grayson's Alex Johnson hit a three run homer to left center to put the Vikings up 6-2.

Grayson kept the runs going and pitcher Conrad Flynn threw a complete game, allowing only six hits and two runs. They beat the Buccaneers 13-2 and claim the National Title. The Vikings are the JUCO World Series Champions for the third time in Grayson baseball history. They won back to back titles in 1999 and 2000.
