Plato takes third in Crow River South

The Plato Blue Jays finished the regular season as the third-place team in the Crow River Valley League (CRVL) southern division following a 9-3 loss at South champion Green Isle in their final pre-playoff contest on Sunday, July 26.
The loss snapped a season-best six-game winning streak for the Blue Jays, who fell just short of claiming the division title for themselves. 
Plato wrapped up the regular season with a 19-6 overall record and was 16-5 in all CRVL games — 10-4 in the southern division. 
All four of the Blue Jays’ divisional losses came against the two teams that finished ahead of them in the South, Green Isle and Brownton. Like Plato, the Bruins were also 16-5 in all league games, but posted a 12-2 mark in the division.
The Blue Jays begin the postseason at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday with Game One of a best-of-three matchup against Young America, the sixth-place finisher in the South, at Norwood.
