STEVENS POINT, Wis. -- The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Board of Control reviewed and approved committee recommendations for winter sports and a baseball pitch count restriction at its June meeting today.

The only score of the game came at the 4:26 mark of the first half. Amanda Durst converted on a corner kick from Emily Crevoiserat to provide all the scoring the Dashers needed.

The Panthers grabbed the lead in the top of the next inning with the aid of two Comets’ fielding miscues. With runners on the corners and one out, a presumptive double play grounder near the bag at second was bobbled for an error to score Jake Whitbeck, who singled to lead off the inning. The next batter grounded back to the pitcher with what appeared to be another made-to-order double-play, but that resulted in an errant throw to second to score Braxton Ghelfi from third.
Prairie du Chien 2, Markesan 0
Prairie du Chien (25-1) blanked Markesan (24-1), 2-0, in the Division 3 semifinals Wednesday afternoon at Neuroscience Group Field to advance to the final Thursday.
Chas Sagedahl turned in a dominating performance on the hill for the Blackhawks. He scattered four hits and struck out 11 batters during the shutout.
Prairie du Chien drew first blood in the second inning after Jack Wasechek belted a triple down the right field line. Jonathan Dyer delivered a two-out single to score Wasecheck and give the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead.
They added a run in the fourth inning on a two-out RBI single by Chad Mara to score Wasechek, who singled earlier in the inning.
The Blackhawks were in position to increase their lead in the bottom of the sixth. With the bases loaded and two outs, Wasechek hit a grounder headed for centerfield, but a diving stop by second baseman Ryan Walker and flip to second base forced out the runner and retired the side.
Wasechek led the Blackhawks’ offense with two hits, including a triple and two runs scored.
Hornets’ starter Kyle Krueger deserved a better fate. He pitched seven innings and surrendered two runs on eight hits with five strikeouts. He also led Markesan at the plate with a pair of hits. Walker and Cody Ryan accounted for the other two Hornets’ hits.
