Fort Thomas Teams Win Multiple Knothole Championships

The Fort Thomas Stars, Class C Senior Champs. They have won back to back Knothole City Tournament Championships. 
Fort Thomas was guaranteed at least two Knothole World Series Championships this year after having five teams make it to three class finals.  

Each team played a best of three series in Blue Ash, including a double header to begin the series. In the end, Fort Thomas teams came away with two championship trophies.


The Fort Thomas Stars and the Omega Tigers both won city tournament championships, in the Senior and Junior C Classes, respectively.

The Omega Tigers, Class C Junior Champs. 
The Stars (11 and under) beat the Fort Thomas Pride, who had split the doubleheader. The Omega Tigers (10 and under) beat the Fort Thomas Bulls, who also finished the doubleheader tied at one game a piece. Both games were decided the next day.

The Omega Rockets lost in the finals after dropping both games of the doubleheader and finished as Class D (9 and under) runner up.

There are around 200 teams in each class, so having five of the 16 teams competing in the finals of all classes is an outstanding feat.

The Fort Thomas Stars claimed back to back titles after also winning the city tournament in 2014. The Omega Tigers redeemed themselves after coming in second last year. 

Congrats to all the teams. It looks like Highlands Coach Jeremy Baioni will have another state championship run coming down the pipe when these teams get to high school.
