Viroqua heads to State while others come up short on Sectional Tuesday

Posted:
ALTOONA, Wisconsin (WXOW)  The Viroqua baseball team will make it's first trip to the WIAA State Tournament since 1985 thanks to a pair of wins Tuesday in the Sectional playoffs.
In the semifinals, Viroqua beat Ellsworth 2-0 behind 16 strikeouts from pitcher Mitch Stalsberg.
Then, in the Sectional final against Somerset, Viroqua brought out the big sticks and pounded Somerset 10-6 to advance to State.
 Tyler Gabrielson and Daltan Tryggestad had key runs-scoring hits in the 5th inning that broke open a close game.
Viroqua will play Ripon next week Wednesday at Fox Cities Stadium at 8 PM.

Elsewhere, in division one Holmen lost it's semifinal game against Reedsburg 4-2 in Middleton.
Andrew Shculenberg broke a 2-2 tie with a solo home run in the 7th inning. 
It was just Holmen's second loss of the season.

Also in Middleton, Central lost to Middleton 2-1.
The key play coming when Brent Kappauf hit what appeared to be a two-run double.
But the Cardinals appealed the play and the umpires ruled that base runner Jerred Ambrose missed third base and was called out.
So instead of a tie game, it was 2-1 and Central was never able to score after that.

In division 3, Westby, who made it to State last year, was shutout by Neillsville 8-0 in Muscoda.

In division 4,  Bangor got a complete game win from Canon O'Heron in their 6-3 win over Augusta in a Sectional semifinal in Wilton.
However, Bangor was eliminated in the final after losing 4-2 to Ithaca.
