The South Winn baseball team continued its stellar season last week as it won its ninth game in the last 10, going 3-1 on the week.

The Warriors opened the week Tuesday, June 18, at Wapsie Valley and took a 2-0 lead in the second inning. The rival Warriors retaliated in the bottom of the third as they tied it up, but then went on to score in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings to win by a score of 6-2.

“We knew going in (that) we would face quality pitching and a good offensive lineup,” said coach Alex Smith following the loss. “Wapsie cape up in the clutch, scoring all of their runs with two outs in the innings. Our guys knew we did execute well in the facets of the game and look for an opportunity to see them again in the playoffs.”

 The TigerHawks broke out in front with solo runs in the first and third. However, Kee tied the game in the bottom the third, scored the winning run in the fourth, and added a pair of insurance runs in the sixth.
