The Capac baseball team poses for a photo after winning a Div. 4 district title last Saturday. It was their first top district finish since the 2013 season.

CAPAC — Capac saw to it that their tournament path would continue a bit longer, rolling to a convincing 16-1 victory over host Genesee in a Division 4 baseball district last Saturday.

It marked Capac’s first district title since the 2013 season and improved their overall mark to a school record-setting 21 wins in 34 contests.

With the result, Capac advances to today’s (Wednesday, June 5) regional semifinal where it will host Marlette. That matchup lists a 4 p.m. starting time.

“I am beyond proud of this group,” Capac Coach Nick Geliske commented. “We worked hard all year, went through a lot of ups and downs but never stopped believing in each other,” he noted.

“I feel super blessed to be a part of this group who are district champions.”

In the title game, Trenton Tice led Capac with a pair of singles. He was backed by Carlos Uribe-Arce, Wiley Roose and Alan Uribe-Arce (a double each) along with Brody Tesnow, Aaron Coltson, Austin Howard and James Meadows (a single apiece).

Alan Uribe Arce was the winning Capac pitcher. He allowed no hits over three innings, struck out six and walked none.

Capac reached the district championship game with a 3-0 victory over Clarkston Everest Collegiate.

Tesnow paced Capac’s offensive attack with a double. The Chiefs also received a single each from Tice, Roose and Howard.

Capac’s winning pitcher was Tesnow. He gave up three hits over seven innings, struck out eight and walked two.
