1980 Winfield Baseball State Champs honored

The 1980 Winfield baseball team was honored at midfield before the Warriors’ football homecoming game against Orchard Farm on Sept. 18 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the state championship run. 

Coach Paul Behle, who was in his first season at the time, was accompanied by nearly all of his former players during the celebration, and said back in 1980, “God sent me this team, said ‘if you can’t win with these boys, you should be fired.’ This team was just packed with talent.”
