A cloud of dust around second as the Vultures try to get an out.

Jr. Legion wins title; hosts tourney

The Minneota Jr. Legion Vultures won the  District 7 South Division Championship with their win last week over Cottonwood.
They were 3-1 in the Division and had a 7-4 overall record, winning their last five games in a row.
Minneota will host rounds two and three on Saturday, July 28 at Kompelien Field.
“Since we are hosting Rounds Two and Three of the Sub-State Junior Legion Tournament in Minneota, we will need some parent volunteers to run concessions,” said Coach J.D. Pesch.
Gate fee and other fund raising activities that day will need volunteers.
Minneota plays at 11 a.m.,  Saturday, July 28 against the winner of Cottonwood and Madison.
In the final regular season game at Cottonwood, the Vultures won, 13-3.
Cole Sanow got the win pitching four innings and Grady Moorse got the save pitching the fifth inning with strikeouts and a ground out.
“Pitching has been good the past month and hitting has been good all year,” said Coach J.D. Pesch. 
Minneota finished 3-1 at the top of their division.
“We went 7-4 on the summer, winning the last 5 games!” added Pesch.
“They are really starting to play as a TEAM and it is showing with the solid games they are having.”
