Big round of applause for the Barbe Bucs Baseball team. They are now officially the national champs!

We're all very proud of the Barbe Bucs. They've played their hearts out and all their baseball program is considered one of the best in the country.

On Monday of this week,  Barbe was officially named the high school team of the year by Baseball America. Then yesterday, they were named National Champs by MaxPreps.

Barbe captured the Class 5A state title in May, the seventh state title in program history. The Bucs (39-2) also won 27 straight games to end the season.
