Waupun Legion Opens State Tourney Play Tonight

The Waupun Post 210 American Legion baseball team heads to Viroqua today for the Single-A American Legion State Tournament.   Post 210 (19-4) will face St. Mary’s Springs (22-2) in their tournament opener on Friday night.   Springs swept a pair of games this year from Waupun winning 9-1 on June 22nd, and 7-3 on June 29th.

For Waupun it’s their 9th trip to state in the last 10 seasons with 2015 being the only non-COVID year they didn’t make it over the last decade. 

“Winning just breeds winning.  I think that’s what we got going here.” Coach Derrick Standke told DailyDodge.com.  “That foundation was laid long before I became the head coach so hats off to past coaches and the way they set the program up.”
