MONTGOMERY – Garrett Farquhar ignored his coach’s instructions.

“He’ll run tomorrow,” Hoover coach Adam Moseley joked.

Farquhar called a team meeting at the hotel after dropping Game 1 of the Class 7A state baseball finals to Auburn on Friday night. Instead of heading straight to bed, the team met to regroup.

“We said we didn’t play our best game, and we still know we have confidence that we’re going to come back on top,” Farquhar said.

It worked, as the Hoover High School baseball team overcame a loss in Game 1 and won both games on Saturday at Montgomery’s Riverwalk Stadium, topping Auburn twice to claim the school’s second state baseball championship.

Adam Moseley and the Bucs won the school’s first baseball title since 2008. In his third season at Hoover, the Bucs finished off a playoff run that saw them go 8-1 over the last four weekends.

“Coach (Matt) Cimo and his team and his staff did a great job,” Moseley said. “That’s a tough team to beat. The difference in the whole series is maybe two total runs. They’re a really well-coached team, and we feel very fortunate to be here. We also feel very much like these kids earned it. It’s a special thing for our kids and they’ve worked really hard and we’re very proud of them.”
