Sectionals on Tuesday!
Last Tuesday, Madison Memorial (#6) defeated Stoughton (#11) 6-2 and moved on to face the ‘Cats in Regional Finals last Thursday. With their 5-4 win over the Spartans, Verona earned a spot in Sectionals on Tuesday to take on Elkhorn (#7).
The Elks defeated Milton (#10) 4-0 last Tuesday and then surprised Madison West (#2), fighting back from a 7-2 deficit to win the Regional Final 8-7.
VAHS is hosting all three sectional games, so the ‘Cats have a chance to leverage home-field advantage into a state playoff berth. If they defeat the Elks at 2 pm, they will play for the Sectional Championship and a trip to the state tournament at 5 pm against the winner of Janesville Craig (#1) v. Beloit Memorial (#4). That matchup kicks off the day at 11 am.
