Summerville baseball beats J.L. Mann, wins 4A state championship

LEXINGTON, S.C. – The Summerville Green Wave lost the heart of their team before the season. Tripp Rabon was a senior at Summerville, set to play first baseman before a one-car accident took his life before the season. The Green Wave dedicated every at bat, every practice, and every game to Tripp.

They might have lost the heart of their team, but they never played without the heart Tripp exhibited on a daily basis.

Friday night, the Wave knocked off J.L. Mann, 2-1 in game 3 of the AAAA state championship. The victory gave Summerville it’s first state title in baseball since 2003 and it’s fifth overall.
