Red Oak wins Class A baseball state championship with win vs. Canute

Red Oak celebrates the Class A state baseball championship over Canute at Shawnee High School in Shawnee, Okla., Monday, May, 9, 2022.

SHAWNEE,OKLA – Red Oak defeated No. 1 seed Canute in the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association Class A baseball state championship, winning 7-6 Monday at Shawnee’s Memorial Park.

“We knew going in how good Canute is,” Eagles first-year coach Cody Pair said. “They can really really hit. Our kids, we got beat in the quarters in the fall and they wore it.

“They took it hard because they said, ‘We’re going to get better’ and our kids have worked tirelessly this spring to be better hitters. And we knew we could pitch it.

“We’ve got a pretty good pitching staff; we know that. That team can hit, but we knew we could kind of hold them at bay enough to where if we could go score, we had a chance to win.”
