I couldn't be more proud of our boys and the way they battled through the cold & rain this last weekend at the Blaine Tournament!

After losing the first pool play game to Rogers 8-7, the boys knew they needed to play solid ball to earn the wild card & get back into the bracket play ... and that's exactly what they did! After holding their next two opponents scoreless (17-0 then 15-0), we came into bracket play as the 4th seed against the undefeated Menomonie team. But they didn't put on the breaks there, and won that match-up 15-1.

In the championship game, we met up with Rogers again, but this time ended with an exciting 5-4 victory to take the title and earn our final Minnesota State Tournament bid for Gopher State.

Every player contributed to this weekend (including our 47 unanswered runs) ... and it was exciting to watch them overcome adversity and rally as a team to make this happen. Way to go, boys! Thanks for a great weekend of ball.
