MADISON - It's hard to imagine defensive breakdowns costing the Monroe softball team on the biggest stage. Monroe (20-10) committed an uncharacteristic eight errors and the Cheesemakers lost a WIAA Division 2 state championship game, 4-1 to Luexemburg-Casco on Saturday at the University of Wisconsin's Goodman Diamond.Monroe, the Division 2 state runner-up for the second straight year, entered the state tournament with the best fielding percentage (.948) in the Division 2 field, but a defensive collapse haunted the Cheesemakers in the title game. The eight errors by the Cheesemakers were just two away from tying a Division 2 record (10) set by Columbus in 1985.
