GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (WQOW) - A 5-run third inning helped the Denmark High School baseball team defeat Rice Lake High School 10-3 in the WIAA Division 2 state semifinals.
Rice Lake had more hits than Demark, but did not score until the sixth inning when Easton Stone drove in Joe Kroeger.
In the seventh inning, Nolan Rowe and Kroeger drove in runs. However, it wasn't enough for Rice Lake to come back and defeat the Vikings.
"There was no quit, that's probably what I'm most proud of," Rice Lake head coach Steve Fisher said. "Didn't have anyone down on the bench, everyone's head was up, just kept hitting the ball. Even that last fly ball, that guy made a great catch on a 360-foot ball."
Denmark went on to defeat Jefferson in the championship game on Wednesday evening at Fox Cities Stadium.
