  Bucs clinch Pheasant Conference title  

The Border West baseball team split a pair of non-conference games last week, losing at home to Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunberg, last Monday night (7-2), but coming back to win at home against Breckenridge, Friday (6-2).

The Buccaneers, who improved to 11-2 overall and are 9-0 in the Pheasant Conference, have given up just 26 total runs this season in 13 games.

With only three more league games to play, Border West has already clinched another Pheasant Conference title as Ashby (6-4 in league play) and Brandon-Evansville (7-5) are tied for second, and Hancock (5-5) and West Central Area (4-5) are behind them.

Border West also appears to be a lock as the top seed in the upcoming Section 6A Tourney, set to begin Saturday, May 28. With only seven teams in the Buccaneers’ half of the section, Border West will have a first-round bye past the elimination round, and would play the winner of Hancock and West Central Area later Saturday, May 28.

New York Mills (12-2), Brandon-Evansville (12-5), Ashby (7-7), and Parkers Prairie (7-10) are the top teams in the other half of the draw.

The Section 6A Tourney continues May 30, June 4, 6 and 7, if needed, with the final rounds at Minnewaska Area High School.
