State Baseball: Stratford advances, Athens falls in semifinal games

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The elements are having their way in Grand Chute, forcing a number of delays and even a rescheduling.

But before the rain forced all play to stop, a couple of local teams were able to take the field.

In the Division 3 semfinal, Stratford, in their first state appearance since 1989, beat Boyceville 7-5.

Lance Heidmann got the win, pitching 5 innings, and giving up five runs, three earned, on six hits.  Chandler Schmidt got the two inning save, keeping Boyceville off the board.

At the plate, Mav Licciardi went 2-2, driving in three. Riley Bauman went 2-3, driving in two and scoring a run.

They will face the winner of Markesan and Ozaukee–a game that state officials think will start around 8 p.m. due to the rainy conditions.

In the division 4 semifinal, two-time defending champion Athens fell just a couple of runs short, as lost to undefeated Webster 4-3.

Webster is the defending Division 3 champion, who moved down into D4 this season.

Cooper Diedrich and Javon Penney each drove in a run for the Blue Jays, who scored two in the bottom of the sixth to make it a one run game, but couldn’t complete the comeback.

Antigo in Division 2 has yet to play–their game could be played Wednesday night around 10-10:30, depending on the weather. No official decision has been made yet as to whether they’ll push the game to Thursday morning.
