SB-L won its first game at state, before falling in the semis.
DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -
Heading into the 3A semi-finals, Sergeant Bluff-Luton was 8-1 in one-run games this season, including their 2-1 opening round victory over Algona. But, the Warriors season came to an end Friday with a 2-1 setback to unranked Dallas Center-Grimes.
Senior lefty Bryce Hanson struck out 10 batters and drove in the only run of the game for the Warriors.
SB-L had it's chances, but left seven runners on base, and stranded the tying run at third, twice.
Making their third trip to Des Moines, the Warriors finally won their first game in school history at state.
Despite Friday's setback, they're hoping to become a staple at Principal Park.
"You know, they really wanted to win a state championship. That's what it was about for them," Head Coach Rick Admire said following the loss on Friday. "They weren't here to just win that first game at state, they wanted it all. They were a team that was capable of doing that but, there's about four (teams) that are capable of that."
"We're happy about it. It's exciting for us. It's exciting for the community," senior Thomas Wisecup added on what the team accomplished at the tournament. "Hopefully we'll start seeing that consistently out of Sergeant Bluff, and I think we should with the younger classmen that we have."
Sergeant Bluff ends it's season with a 25-12 record.
