No Wisconsin softball team has won the state championship
with an unbeaten record since 2008....2005 is the
last time a Division three team did it.
29-and-oh Arcadia going this afternoon for the program's
first WIAA state title.
Laconia the only thing standing in the way....
...from the number-one ranked Raiders finishing out
a perfect season.
Taylor Haines nearly-perfect on the mound...striking
out the first 13 batters she faces.
Laconia ends the no-hit bid in the 5th inning....Haines
then strands a runner on third with another strikeout.
Just like their state semifinal game.
it's 0-0 going into the 7th.
Michaela Brueggen singles to right...in comes Hillary
Filla for the second straight day as a pinch runner
in a scoreless game.
Filla steals second base...and advances to third off
of the throwing error.
And Alyssa Pronschinske gets her home with the sacrafice
Arcadia is bringing home the program's first W-I-A-A
state championship...winning one-nothing.
