In one game the Whitehall baseball team was able to pull away late, but in the other their offense was quiet in the final two innings. The Norse had a big lead early against Alma Center Lincoln, but they needed a big inning late to put the game away last week Monday. On Wednesday, they fell behind...

Another split of Dairyland Conference games rounded out the week for Blair-Taylor baseball, as they maintained an even record on the season.

The first loss came to a team that has beaten several opponents by similar scores as the Norse lost to Blair-Taylor 23-0 last Thursday (see story elsewhere in Sports). On Friday, the...
