EHT wins Campbell title
Egg Harbor Township won the Bill Campbell Memorial Tournament at Eastern High School, beating Holy Cross 10-3 in a semifinal and rallying to beat Eastern 6-5 in the championship game.
EHT's Connor Agostino hit a three-run double with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to give his team the championship.
Agostino was named the tournament MVP. The Eagles were the home team against Eastern in the final.
"They (Eastern) were 12-0 and Holy Cross was 9-2, so we beat two very good ballclubs," Egg Harbor Township coach Bryan Carmichael said. "The week didn't start off real well because we lost two conference games, but they were two huge wins. It was a total program effort."
EHT's Mike Lahoud was 5 for 8 on the day, and Agostino went 4 for 8.
