Blue Jays seize state berth once again

With a pair of victories during the opening rounds of play in the Region 7C Tournament last week, the Plato Blue Jays have once again punched their ticket for the upcoming Class C state tournament.
In front of record crowds at Lions Park in Waconia, top-seeded Plato rolled to an 8-1 win over No. 8 Cologne in the regional opener on Thursday, Aug. 2, before rallying twice to overcome fifth-seeded Green Isle 5-4 in a state-qualifying matchup on Saturday, Aug. 4.

Bruins remain alive for state tournament spot

Four outs away from clinching a trip to state, the Brownton Bruins still have some work to do to fulfill dreams of making an appearance in the Class C tournament.
Brownton was delivered a hard dose of heartache in the second round of the Region 7C Tournament on Sunday, Aug. 3, at Lions Park in Waconia. The seventh-seeded Bruins, fresh off a 6-0 triumph over No. 2 seed Watertown one day earlier, were clinging to a 1-0 eighth-inning lead on third-seeded Young America.
