Trojans win section championship!

After scoring a combined eight runs in the first four games of the Section 1AAAA tournament, the New Prague Trojans erupted for 10 runs Wednesday, June 5, in a 10-3 win over Lakeville North to win the section championship and earn a trip to the state tournament.

Joe Becker started and pitched five strong innings to get the win. Luke Tupy pitched the final two innings. Drew Picka went 4-for-5 and Becker had a couple RBIs early in the game to help New Prague's cause.

The Trojans ended a six-year streak of North going to the state tournament. More importantly, it ended a 39-year drought for New Prague, whose only other appearance came in 1980.

The state Class AAAA baseball tournament is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, at CHS Field in St. Paul (home of the St. Paul Saints). The Championship game will be played at Target Field in Minneapolis on Thursday, June 20.

Pairings for the state tournament will be determined this weekend and will be posted at when they are announced. Read more in the print edition.
