A thunder and rain delay couldn't put a damper on Monroe junior Kayla Updike's swing in a WIAA Division 2 sectional championship game. After a 52-minute thunder delay, Updike crushed a three-run home run to left in the first inning to propel Monroe to a 4-1 win over McFarland in a rain-shortened five inning sectional title Thursday, May 30.
