They beat Marathon 6-2 in the final of the sectional hosted by the Zephyrs to advance to the State semifinals. They are the champions of the Eastern Wisconsin Conference this season. Kenosha St. Joseph has qualified for the final four for the fifth time and for the first time since 2009. The Lancers’ four previous appearance came during a span of five years from 2005-09, which resulted in back-to-back championships in 2005-06 and another in 2009. They had a number of championships as a former member of WISAA, winning titles in 1965, 1970, 1977 and 1988. This season, the Lancers finished second in the Metro Conference behind Martin Luther, and they advanced through the Markesan Sectional with a five-inning, 13-1 drubbing of Laconia in the final. Webster moves up one division after qualifying for the State tournament for the first time last season in Division 4. The Tigers’ initial appearance resulted in a loss in their semifinal match-up. This season, they edged Elk Mound 2-1 in the Chippewa Falls Sectional final to earn their return to State. They are the champions of the West Division of the Lakeland Conference this season.
