Watch out for the Sevastopol Varsity Baseball team. In a rare #4 over #1 seed upset, the Pioneers topped Gresham 12-7 Tuesday. The Division 4 regional final is set for this afternoon between N.E.W. Lutheran and Sevastopol in Green Bay.
Coach Jason Marggraf said, “I think this is really a preview of things to come for this team. We pounded the heck out of the ball. The bottom of the line up was absolutely clutch, stringing hits together when it counted. Our seven hitter, Nathan Stenzel, was five for five. It was awesome watching this line up play up to its potential. Brent came on in relief and was nails, and the defense played a very mature game behind him.”
Ethan Kroll added four hits in the win. Jacob Pflieger also had a multi-hit performance Tuesday afternoon. Brent Haberli accounted for 3 RBI and Zach Christiansen added two.
