A-A baseball makes sub-state

Determination propelled the Alta-Aurelia baseball team to what coach Ryan Burkhart described as a “t-shirt game” against West Sioux July 17 in the class 2A sub-state battle.

The Warriors got their sub-state spot with a 3-2, nine-inning win over Unity Christian for their district championship July 14. The A-A and West Sioux winner moved on to the state tournament and had the t-shirt print order duty.

The Warriors trailed 1-0 and 2-1 but kept battling to earn their 19-4 record.
