Panthers are Sectional Baseball Champs

The St. Croix Central baseball team beat Osseo-Fairchild and Park Falls last Tuesday to win the WIAA Division 3 sectional last Tuesday to earn a trip to the state tournament.

"It's a nice way for all the seniors to end their career at the state tournament," said Coach Mike Fern. "It's a good group of kids."

The Panthers (18-5) will face Marathon (21-3) on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. in the semi-final game at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute. The winner of the game will face the winner of a game between Aquinas (21-3) and St. Mary's Spring (19-4) on Thursday at noon.

The Panthers earned the right to play in the state tournament by beating Osseo-Fairchild 2-0 in the sectional semi-final and Park Falls 7-4 in the final.
