APPLETON, Wis. - Mitch Stalsberg's final start on the mound in his high school career will be one that's remembered for a while.
Stalsberg's pitching performance of 21 strikeouts in Viroqua's state semifinal game set a new WIAA State record. His nine-inning complete game was also the second longest outing at State in Division two history.
"He's the Player of the Year for Wisconsin High School Baseball so it's well deserved and boy that doesn't come around very often," said Viroqua head coach Pete Swanson.

"I think my high school career went pretty well with pitching," said Stalsberg. Throughout the years I kept getting better and that's what you want to do."
"120-some strikeouts (this season). He brings it every game. Always throws hard and he's going to do great," said teammate Dalten Tryggestad.
Viroqua finished the season as WIAA Division 2 state runner-ups in their first state baseball appearance since 1985.
