Columbus High’s baseball team is three outs away from making its first trip to the state tournament since 1953. 

The Discoverers were leading Lincoln East 6-4 in the top of the 10th inning Saturday night when the A-3 district final was suspended by lightning and rain.  The two teams will resume the game at Den Hartog Field in Lincoln today at 4:30 with CHS batting with the bases full and two outs in the top of the 10th. 

Earlier on Saturday, the third-seeded Discoverers edged number-2 seed Creighton Prep 7-6 in the district semifinals.
