Jack DeGroat threw a four-hit complete game Saturday as Loudoun Valley High School's baseball team defeated Poquoson 9-1 in the 3A state final at Liberty University in Lynchburg.

The state championship was the Vikings (24-3) first in baseball since 1972 when they captured the Group AA title.

Loudoun Valley led from the start in pounding out 11 hits overall. The Vikings scored five of their runs in the fourth inning to lead 9-0. 

Sam Urban finished 2 for 3 with an RBI and Trey McDyre was 2 for 4 with two RBI. 

The Vikings defeated Poquoson (18-10) in the regional final 5-3. Poquoson won state titles in 2001, 2009 and 2010.
