Three Top of Iowa Conference teams punched their tickets to the Class 1A and 2A state tournaments last night.
In Class 2A, TIC schools represent the top two seeds. #1 Central Springs routed Osage, 10-0 in five innings. The Panthers will be the overwhelming favorites to bring home the title. Though, waiting for them on the other side of the bracket is #2 North Union, who beat Ridge View 9-4 to advance to state.
In Class 1A, Newman Catholic pulled the upset to reach the tournament again. The Knights went to #4 Collins-Maxwell and won, 4-2. Newman’s reward for the upset? A date with defending Class 2A champion, North Linn.
