Norwalk High School’s baseball team enjoyed the spotlight on Saturday, as the city honored their recent state championship – a first in school history.
Earlier this month, the Bears defeated Westhill 1-0.
First-year head Coach Ryan Mitchell says he challenged his team to compete at a high level day in and out.
"Things can be accomplished if you just work your tail off and I think now with all of this, they finally understand what I was talking about back in January," he told News 12.
After parading around town they made their final stop at the Norwalk Green. There, Mayor Harry Rilling proclaimed June 26, 2021 as “Norwalk High School Baseball State Championship Day” in the city.
Coach Ryan Mitchell says they're not looking to be a one hit wonder --- but want to stay on top for a long time.
