CCHS baseball heading back to the playoffs

Update (May 19, 11:30 a.m.): Our esteemed fishing columnist Sean Wilkes has confirmed that the CCHS baseball team qualified for sectionals every year from 2002-05.
I talked to two coaches, the athletic director and a number of parents who all said it had been over 10 years. All apologies for the error.
