Titans return to State

The Tea Area Titans Varsity Baseball team punched their ticket to the Class A State Baseball Tournament last Thursday afternoon,  after sweeping the Sturgis Brown Scoopers in a three-game series held at the Tea Area Sports Complex last week.

The Titans, who came into Super Regional play as the #8 Seed, will return to the “Birdcage” in Sioux Falls, almost one year after being crowned the Class B State Champions last season on the same field. 

In Game #1 of the Super Regional versus Sturgis, the Titans bats started hot and never let up, scoring seven runs in the second inning and six runs in the third, en route to a 15-0 victory over the Scoopers.

Seven Titans collected hits on evening including four with multi-hit efforts.  Leading the way was Ethan Vis with three hits and two RBI’s, Mason Schramm with two hits and two RBI’s, Cole McKinney with two hits, including a triple, and Nate Christensen with two hits. Sam Werdel and Carter Turek each added extra base hits with a triple and double respectively.

On the mound, Boston Willemssen made quick work of the Scoopers,  going the distance, giving up just one hit, while striking out four.

In Game #2 on Thursday afternoon, Clayton Schwebach controlled the game on the mound for the Titans, pitching six innings, giving up no runs, on one hit, while striking out a career high 14 batters, leading to a 9-1 victory.

Offensively Mason Schramm and Cole Mckinney lead the attack with two hits each, Schramm drove in three of the Titans runs, while, McKinney drove in two.  Nate Christensen and Schwebach each added hits in the contest.

The Titans will be the #6 Seed in the State Tournament, matching up against the #3 Seed, Brandon Valley Lynx.  

First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. this Friday night, May 24 at the Birdcage in Sioux Falls.
