Stamford Bulldogs have been a powerhouse in this part of the state in baseball, and a big reason for that has been their head coach Lannie Templeton.

They are coming off their 2nd straight appearance in the championship game. Head coach Lannie Templeton is a big reason for the school's success in the sport in the last few years.

The Bulldogs leader, Templeton, just won his 300th career game as a head coach. He's proud of the accomplishment, but he won't take all the credit.

"It's very humbling. Obviously we've had kids that have stepped out and competed every time we've put them on the field, and that's made my job so much easier. It's a big milestone, and obviously that's what you shoot for. Those 100, 200, and 300 wins, but there's guys out there with 500 and 600 hundred wins, I know. Their hard to come by," said head coach Lannie Templeton.

"This will be my fourth year with [Templeton] being my head coach and we've had, I don't even know how man wins we've had, but for that to be his 300th it really set the path for the season. It was pretty special for all of us," said Gus West.

The Bulldogs wasted little time getting Templeton's 301st win after defeating Roby in their first district game of the season by the count of 12-0.
