The Independence/Gilmanton baseball team picked up one Dairyland Conference win and had a lead in another before the game was postponed due to rain.

The Indees scored three runs in the third inning of a 3-1 win over Augusta last week Tuesday. They scored three in the first inning as they led Blair-Taylor 3-0 in the third on Friday before rain came and pushed the rest of the game to Wednesday of this week.

I/G began this week tied with Eleva-Strum and Whitehall at the top of the Dairyland Conference with an 8-1 record, they were 8-3 overall as of Monday. Prior to finishing the B-T game on Wednesday, the Indees played at Cochrane-Fountain City on Tuesday of this week. They’re scheduled to host Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran on Thursday.

Where I/G finishes in the conference could be determined next week as the Indees host Whitehall on Monday and play at E-S on Tuesday.
