(ABC 6 News) – Thanks to not just one, but two big innings, for a fourth-straight season, the Hayfield Vikings are Section 1A softball champions.
The Vikings, who have reached each of the previous Class A state softball tournaments, topped Wabasha-Kellogg in Thursday’s Section 1A Championship in five innings, 14-0. The Vikings scored seven runs in the 2nd and 4th innings to help engineer the title win.
The Vikings only needed one win to claim the Section 1A title. With the win, since 2015, the Vikings are 19-1 in Section 1A softball tournament play.
The Class A state softball tournament opens play at Caswell Park in North Mankato on Thursday, June 7. It is still yet to be determined who the Vikings will play in the state opener.
