Duluth Marshall baseball claims Section 7AA crown, South Ridge wins 7A
For the fourth time in five seasons the Duluth Marshall baseball team will be headed to the state tournament.
On Thursday second seeded Duluth Marshall toppled fourth seeded Proctor 8-4 to claim the Section 7AA title at Superior’s NBC Spartan Sports Complex.
"We were up and comfortable and they fought back and gave us some adversity," Hilltoppers head coach Nick Garramone shared. "We teach these young men that if we’re going to accomplish anything we need to believe in each other, we need to believe in what we’re doing, and we have to love the person that we’re with and who we’re doing it with, and love ourselves.
"Obviously the championships come and go, but knowing that we have the blueprint for the future and we’re handing the torch off to these guys, I’m confident that they will do it again," senior Mason Boos shared.
Additionally, in Section 7A top-seeded South Ridge held off third seeded Ely 3-2 at Mesabi East to punch their fourth straight ticket to state.
The Minnesota state baseball tournament runs from June 14th-17th.
