The Markesan baseball team heads to Viroqua today for a WIAA Division Three Sectional that features three of the best teams in the state. The 6th ranked Hornets will face off with #4 Mineral Point at 2pm in a Sectional Semifinal. Markesan (18-2, 9-0) won the Trailways North this season while Mineral Point (25-3, 14-0) won the SWAL.
Both teams are looking for a return trip to the WIAA State Tournament this year after reaching state title games in 2019. Markesan dropped the D4 State Championship Game to Stratford in 2019, while Mineral Point settled for a runner-up finished behind Webster the last time the title games were held.
The 2020 season was cancelled because of COVID-19.
The winner will face either 3rd ranked Aquinas or Marathon in the Sectional Final at 5pm.
