CRESTVIEW — Davis Champion lived up to his last name Thursday night.

Crestview High School's senior pitcher went the distance on the mound and Dakota Dean had a pair of hits and scored a run as the Bulldogs beat Mosley 3-2 to claim the District 2-6A baseball title.

The district title was the second in three years for the Bulldogs who won the District 2-5A championship in 2011.

Crestview (21-5) will host Tate on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Class 6A region quarterfinals.

"It feels great to get our second championship in three years," Dean said, "especially since I'm a senior."

Champion earned the win the hard way scattering 11 Dolphin hits to go along with just four strike outs. But Champion made the Mosley batters work to reach base as he didn't allow a walk.
