After leading Duluth Marshall to their first State AA baseball title last season, former Hilltopper head coach Joe Wicklund has been hired to lead the Duluth Denfeld baseball team.

Wicklund led Duluth Marshall to a 26-1 record overall and the program's first State baseball title. He spent six seasons leading the Hilltoppers. 

Tom Pearson, the Athletic Director at Denfeld, announced the hiring in a Tweet Wednesday morning. Wicklund confirmed to WDIO that he is "100 percent excited" and that it was a "100 percent hard decision."

Wicklund replaces Cal Fouger who left to pursue a college assistant job in North Dakota.
