South Winn baseball improved to 2-0 on the season as the team picked up a 6-1 win over Decorah on Wednesday evening (June 18).

“This was a great game for our guys to play in with a large crowd and several big-time situations in which we executed extremely well on defense,” said coach Alex Smith after the game. “Decorah did a great job at the plate of putting the ball in play and our guys were up for the challenge, making several great plays while committing zero errors.”

After 2.5 scoreless innings, the Vikings were first to strike on the scoreboard as they were able to score on a sac fly. 

In the top of the fourth inning, the Warriors got revenge as they batted in three runs in a rally that included a two-out RBI triple by Noah Tieskoetter.
