The Tiger baseball team pulled off the unthinkable on Saturday, winning a pair of games to take the 2011 GPAC Tournament Title. The wins were not hard to believe but the fashion in which the Tigers did so was impressive.
Doane took down Hastings College 11-3 in an elimination game, sparked by a six-run, sixth inning. Then in the championship game, the Tigers won 14-2 over Midland using an eight-run, sixth inning. Combined, Doane plated 14 runs in the sixth inning of the two games.
The championship gives the Tigers their first-ever berth into the NAIA National Tournament. Hastings goes as well in their first-ever berth.
