Viroqua Wins Class A State Legion Baseball Title

By Adam Roberts – 8/4/2021

There are two things I personally associate with the Viroqua community: Wild West Days and baseball excellence.

The former is coming up in two weeks, while the latter was on display once again yesterday. The Class A Legion baseball title went to Viroqua courtesy of a 4-2 win over second-ranked Denmark. The runs all came in the bottom of the third with Griffin Olson, Evan Hubatch, and Braden Lendosky coming up big. Pitcher Clayton Slack was also dominant, throwing a complete game four-hit effort.

Next up for Viroqua is a trip to the Division 2 Central Plains Tournament; their pool includes La Crescent, and the two teams will face off on Friday afternoon.

Additionally, La Crosse Post 52 opens their national regional tonight in Sioux Falls, South Dakota against the hosts. Ace pitcher Dylan Lapic will be unavailable to throw until at least Friday.
