The Chattanooga State signee scattered seven hits, struck out nine and walked just two batters -- both in the bottom of the sixth to load the bases with one out. Swindoll the calmly pitched out of the jam with back-to-back strikeouts.

"The coaches were calling good pitches and I just had to settle down and do what I've been doing all season," Swindoll said, "We've got a good defense back there and I knew if they hit it -- our guys would make a play."

DH Austin Godwin led off the second innine with a double down the leftfield line, then scored when Tanner Martin drilled a double to the gap in leftcenter. Martin came around to score on Gunner Osborne's single for a two-run lead against Silverdale starter and loser Joey Szollosi.

FCS picked up a pair of insurance runs in the top of the sixth on an infield error, a wild pitch and a single by Osborne.

Caleb Snider, Swindoll and Osborne each had two hits for Friendship. Josiah Green paced the Silverdale offensive attack with a pair of singles.

Silverdale finished the season 29-4 while FCS pickedup itsTSSAA state title -- the first coming in 2007.

Over the past two academic years, Friendship Christian has notched back-to-back state championships in Class 2A football, back-to-back Class A volleyball titles and a 2012 Class A boys basketball championship.
